Steady State Flow of Multiple Fluid Phases
in Geological Samples

Correlate multiple scales of multi-phase flow behavior from
core to pore on the same sample, allowing for core-scale
changes in relative permeability to be described in terms of
changes in pore-scale fluid distribution. This can be done by
conducting full steady state flow experiments in situ within
the Xradia 520 Versa. These data can then be compared with
computer simulation results to validate and inform a new
generation of pore-scale models. Fundamental controls on
multi-phase fluid displacement, such as contact angle, can be
measured directly on real samples at representative subsurface
conditions by imaging fluid-fluid interfaces at high resolutions
using the unique dual-stage architecture present within the
Xradia Versa.
