Abstract

Profitable production from oil and gas reservoirs is essential in the petroleum industry, and solutions for many reservoir engineering problems rely on an accurate estimation of rock's physical properties. Traditional property estimation using conventional laboratory measurements has a high turnover time. Furthermore, conventional methods often make simplified assumptions and lack a detailed understanding of the internal mechanisms influencing estimated properties. Digital rock physics (DRP) allows for an alternative strategy for estimating these properties by using high-resolution computerized tomography (CT) scanners.
