Bentheimer networks

Chul Moon & Matthew Andrew
Dataset: Bentheimer networks Bentheimer is imaged by a ZEISS Versa X-ray Microscope (XRM) (ZEISS X-Ray Microscopy, Pleasanton, CA). A series of 1600 2D projections are acquired at regular angular increments over a 360° rotation. These reconstruct a series of 3D volumes: cylinders which are then cropped to the maximally inscribed cubes. 2D projections are 1024 x 1024 pixels, and 3D volumes are 1024 x 1024 x1024 voxels. Images are segmented by ZEISS Zen Intellesis machine...

Carbonates: Porosity and permeability voxel to voxel

Leandro Ferreira, Rodrigo Surmas, Mônica Silva & Ricardo Peçanha
We acquired micro-CT images from two carbonate outcrops (Indiana Limestone and Silurian Dolomite), and used it to calculate porosity at each voxel (the samples are considered pure, since Indiana Limestone is 99% calcite, and Silurian Dolomite, 97% dolomite). For thus, we segmented pores (porosity=100%) and 'solid' (porosity=5%) and used the grayscale of these two points to calculate porosity directly in the image. Since there is no voxel with 100% solid at the resolutions used, we...

Digital rock segmentation from micro-CT/SEM data by using convolutional neural network

YUFU NIU
Pore-scale digital images are usually obtained from micro computed tomography (micro-CT) data that has been segmented into void and grain space. Image segmentation is a critical process for digital rock analyses that can influence pore-scale characterisation studies and/or the numerical simulation of petrophysical properties. This project is to study on the sandstone micro-CT image segmentation by using convolutional neural network.

Pore scale multiphase flow experiments in bead packs of variable wettability

Zuleima Karpyn
The aim of this experimental study is to investigate the impact of wetting characteristics on multiphase flow, sweep efficiency, and residual fluid distribution in unconsolidated porous media. A sequence of oil and water injections was performed on bead packs with uniform porosity and permeability, but different wettability characteristics. Uniform and mixed wet bead packs with varying degree of wettability were fabricated to analyze how the residual saturation profiles and the distribution of fluid phases at...

Synthetic Rock Salt

Soheil Ghanbarzadeh, Marc A. Hesse, Masa Prodanovic & James E. Gardner
Deep geological storage sites for nuclear waste are commonly located in rock salt to ensure hydrological isolation from groundwater. The low permeability of static rock salt is due to a percolation threshold. However, deformation may be able to overcome this threshold and allow fluid flow. We confirm the percolation threshold in static experiments on synthetic salt samples with x-ray microtomography. We then analyze wells penetrating salt deposits in the Gulf of Mexico. The observed hydrocarbon...

Two-Fluid Micromodel Experiments

James McClure
An experimental microfluidic approach based upon image analysis of nitrogen displacing decane in a 500 μm × 500 μm × 1.5 μm micromodel experiment. The pressures on the boundary of the cell were changed and the system was observed as it dynamically relaxed to an equilibrium state. These images capture microscale equilibrium configurations that can be used to determine fluid saturations, interfacial areas, and curvatures.
