Geochemical control of hydraulic and mechanical reservoir sandstone properties

Maria Wetzel , Thomas Kempka & Michael Kühn
University of Potsdam, Institute of Geosciences(2);Geochemical processes such as mineral dissolution and precipitation alter the microstructure of rocks, and thereby affect their hydraulic and mechanical behaviour. Quantifying and considering these property changes in reservoir simulations substantially supports risk assessments related to geological subsurface utilization. In our virtual laboratory, 3D pore-scale models of typical reservoir sandstones are applied to determine the effective hydraulic and elastic properties of sandstones. In order to adequately depict characteristic distributions of...
