Pore-scale distribution of crude oil wettability in carbonate rocks

Marathe, Rohini; Turner, Michael; Fogden, Andrew


Carbonate reservoir rocks can exhibit highly variable and intricate pore systems at multiple scales, for which the distribution of wettability is largely unknown. To improve understanding of pore-scale wettability, a set of outcrop and reservoir carbonate plugs was treated by partial drainage of brine by crude oil and aging, for a variety of brine-oil combinations and conditions. Wettability alteration was imaged by high resolution scanning electron microscopy of the oil footprint remaining on...[Show more]
