Estaillades Carbonate #2

Tom Bultreys, Luc Van Hoorebeke & Veerle Cnudde
Estaillades carbonate is a mono-mineralic, calcitic rock, which contains two types of pores: intergranular macropores and intra-granular micropores. An Estaillades sample with a diameter of 7mm was scanned with UGCT’s HECTOR micro-CT scanner (developed in collaboration with XRE, www.xre.be). In this micro-CT scan, (most of) the intergranular macropores are resolved, while the micropores are not. A three-phase segmentation consisting of pore voxels, voxels with unresolved porosity, and solid voxels is provided. This image was used...

Multiphase Flows in Sandstones

Anna Herring, Adrian Sheppard, Michael Turner & Levi Beeching
Three water-wet sandstone types (Bentheimer, Berea, and Leopard) at different multiphase (air and brine) saturation conditions; including dry (irreducible water saturation), and partially drained. Data was acquired at the Australian National University CTLab, and image processing was accomplished via Mango.

X-ray CMT Images of Abiotic Carbonate Precipitation in Porous Media from a Supersaturated Solution

Seung-Hun Baek & Tae-Hyuk Kwon
This file contains X-ray computed microtomography (CMT) images used to analyze abiotic carbonate precipitation in porous media from a supersaturated solution. An X-ray transparent and rigid-walled polycarbonate column was developed to hold the sand pack tight during the carbonate precipitation process. The column consisted of a polycarbonate tube with an inner diameter of 3.18 mm, an outer diameter of 9.53 mm, and a height of 44.1 mm. Two polycarbonate discs and two stainless steel springs...

Particulate straining in carbonate proxy

Hasan Khan, Masa Prodanovic & David A. DiCarlo
This project presents particle straining in vuggy proxy media, where the media is a sintered glass bead (1.0 mm) core with dissolvable inclusion. Smaller sized glass bead particles (25 and 100 um) are injected in the proxy media to establish straining. Medical CT images of before and after injection are presented for 2 different flow rates (40 and 60 ml/min) and 3 different flow concentration (0.5%, 1% and 2%). The experiments are labeled according to...

Images of imbibiiton process for a Bentheimer sandstone at different fraction flows

Gold grains scanned at various resolutions

Richard Ketcham
This project was to develop and test a method to measure the size and shape of particles that are small relative to the scan resolution, in a way that is accurate, reproducible, objective, and resolution-invariant. The scans are of an artificial core containing 12 gold grains embedded in quartz powder and epoxy (some iron filings are also mixed in), with sizes ranging from 100-300 microns (sphere-equivalent diameter), and a range of shapes. There are 12...

Digital Rendering of Sedimentary Relief Peels

Tip Meckel
Sedimentary-relief peels from field environments have been a primary observational technique for decades. Hundreds (likely thousands) of specimens of variable quality exist, representing a wide range of acquisition techniques, and depositional processes and sedimentary environments (e.g., Martinius and van den Berg, 2011). Peels are traditionally used to recognize and explain depositional processes and sedimentary textures qualitatively. This project is an effort to digitally capture sedimentary heterogeneity information represented by these unique specimens that are larger...

X-ray micro-tomography datasets of mixed-wet carbonate reservoir rocks for in situ effective contact angle measurements

Amer Alhammadi, Branko Bijeljic & Martin Blunt
Three high resolution X-ray micro-tomography datasets of carbonate reservoir rock samples obtained after 20 pore volumes of waterflooding at subsurface conditions. The three samples (Sample 1, Sample 2 and Sample 3) have been aged to restore the reservoir wetting conditions (mixed-wettability). The mixed wetting conditions have been characterized by in situ effective contact angle measurements using the automated algorithm developed by AlRatrout et al., 2017 applied on the segmented images. More details can be found...

Water-wet three-phase flow micro-CT tomograms

Alessio Scanziani, Kamaljit Singh & Martin Blunt
This dataset contains 3D images of a Ketton water-wet rock saturated with two or three phases (KI-doped brine, iododecane-doped decane and nitrogen). The images were obtained at two different resolutions (5 and 2 micrometres per voxel side) using a laboratory based X-ray micro-CT scanner. We provide raw data after each of the following injection steps: - dry image - oil injection in a fully brine saturated sample (OI) - first waterflooding (WF1) - gas injection...

Fines migration in sediments containing methane hydrate during depressurization

Han Gyeol & Tae-Hyuk Kwon
This project presents the X-ray CT image sets obtained during depressurization of methane hydrate bearing sediments. Particularly, the imaging experiment aims on quantifying the extent of fines migration in sediments containing some fines due to depressurization. In this study, three sediments were tested as follows: (a) Ottawa 20-30 sand with 9%w/w silica silt (b) F110 sand with 11.5%w/w silica silt (c) F110 sand with 6%w/w kaolinite and 4%w/w silica silt. These three are referred to...

Further details for image analysis can be obtained from: 1. Singh, K., Bijeljic, B. and Blunt, M.J. (2016). Imaging of oil layers, curvature and contact angle in a mixed-wet and...

Downscaling-based segmentation for unresolved images of highly heterogeneous granular porous samples

Ilenia Battiato Svyatoslav Korneev
We propose a simple and efficient algorithm of downscaling followed by segmentation to reconstruct the unresolved pore space from X-ray computed tomography (XCT) images of natural geological porous media columns. Contrary to widely employed single and multilevel threshold-based segmentation, the proposed method is based on a continuous map between pixel intensity and local pixel porosity that does not rely on the definition of arbitrary thresholds. The approach is used to generate a high-resolution binary image...
