Reservoir: Coring and Core Analysis – Technologies and Applications
Rock and fluid characteristics strongly affect in-place volumes, RF, injectivity/
productivity, and deliverability. Therefore, accurate rock and rock-fluid characterization are keys for maximizing the asset value and minimizing technical risks.
Characterization of rock and fluid properties require a systematic and integrated procedure involving well-designed coring and sampling procedure, best practice laboratory tests, rigorous QC, data integration and validation. The objectives are to reduce measurement uncertainty and increase data reliability for accurate in-place volume, reserve and reservoir performance prediction.
The objective of this presentation is to provide appropriate state-of-the-art technologies for coring, rock characterization, capillary pressure, wettability and relative permeability measurements and the effect of measurement scale.
Because rock and rock-fluid characterization methods are continually evolving, portions of this presentation will address new technologies that help improve core measurements, data management system and modeling.
