The sustainable use of natural resources is dependent upon improving the efficiency of the mining, refining and end production industries. Pioneering microscopy solutions by ZEISS increase the yield and efficiency of natural resources through an in-depth understanding of the morphological structure or chemical composition of a resource.

Understand your reservoir rock’s impact on reservoir performance. Characterize and classify the properties of ores, gems and precious metals. Analyze complex raw materials. ZEISS provides the most advanced portfolio of imaging solutions – light, electron/ion, and X-ray – to visualize, characterize and quantify the properties and processes of your natural resources. Our solutions link length scales via correlative workflows to provide the exact imaging and analysis required to deliver the answers you need.

In our weekly webinar series starting January 27, Dr. Matthew Andrew from ZEISS Microscopy will present current state-of-the-art capabilities for imaging reservoir processes at the pore scale with ZEISS Xradia Versa X-ray microscopy.

Detailed program:

January 27, 2016
A 30-minute preview and taste of the upcoming sessions
In this session, we will provide an overview regarding the current state-of-the-art capabilities for imaging reservoir processes at the pore scale.

February 3, 2016
Pore scale imaging of a flow through a one inch core
This webinar will cover the unique capabilities of ZEISS Xradia Versa XRM to achieve Resolution at a Distance (RaaD), allowing for pore-scale imaging to be conducted while flowing multiple fluids through a standard 1” core-plug.

February 10, 2016
Steady state relative permeability – single vs. dual porosity systems
Most in situ flow experiments to date have concerned unsteady state displacements, where fluids are injected sequentially. In this webinar we will review some results from the state-of-the-art integrated flow system for ZEISS Xradia Versa XRM, allowing for full steady state relative permeability experiments to be conducted at reservoir conditions.

February 17, 2016
Peering into the fourth dimension – dynamic displacements in laboratory systems
Rapid scanning with lab-based X-ray microscopes can be used to examine dynamic processes with time scales of hours to days, such as multi-phase flow, reaction, compaction and salt precipitation.

February 24, 2016
Geomechanics
The understanding of geomechanical processes is critical for the holistic description of reservoir dynamics, however their fundamental grain-scale physics is very poorly understood. In this webinar we will review recent work that has allowed for the qualitative and quantitative understanding of fracture formation and propagation.

March 2, 2016
Whole core characterization – multi-scale methods & in situ
Rocks are heterogeneous on all length scales. We will show how, using new detector options for ZEISS Xradia Versa XRM, we can properly capture and characterize this heterogeneity by using macroscopic lithological classification algorithms and subsampling. This allows for small sub-samples to be taken from each lithology forin situ testing, and measurements of properties such as wettability and residual saturation to be upscaled to the full core scale.

March 16, 2016
Future views for in situ – extending experiments down to the nm scale
While most in situ experiments have been conducted on the micron length scale, for unconventional systems this may not be sufficient to fully resolve the pore/grain structure. In this webinar we will review how ZEISS Xradia Ultra XRM can be used with an integrated loading stage to conduct geomechanics experiments on shale at resolutions down to 50nm.
