Micro-CT images of a heterogeneous Mt. Simon sandstone sample

Amir Hossein Kohanpur, Valocchi Albert & Dustin Crandall
The sample porous medium is from Mt. Simon sandstone at a depth of 6700 feet. The formation is located at verification well number 2 of a study site in Decatur, Illinois where Illinois State Geological Survey carried out a pilot injection study to better understand the feasibility of full-scale carbon capture and storage (Finley, 2014). A core plug from the formation was scanned by micro-CT imaging technique at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) of...

Dataset of 3D fluid phase distribution from drainage simulations (in micromodel and real rock geometry) examining inertial effects

Yu Chen, Qinjun Kang, Albert Valocchi & Hari Viswanathan
The dataset contains fluid phase distribution obtained from high-resolution drainage simulations in both a heterogenous micromodel and Bentheimer sandstone. The purpose is to investigate the influence of inertial effects on scCO2-brine displacement in complex geometries, where scCO2 is much less viscous than brine or oil meaning that the inertial effects may not be negligible. The direct numerical simulations in this work employ the continuum-surface-force based color-gradient multiple-relaxation-time lattice Boltzmann model combined with a geometrical wetting...
