Hexadecane and brine injected into Estaillades carbonate - steady-state experiment

Project Cover Image


This data is micro-CT images of the simultaneous injection of hexadecane and brine into a porous carbonate rock (Estaillades). The images were acquired during steady-state, which was deduced from a plateau in the differential pressure across the sample. The experiments were conducted in the capillary dominated regime (the total flow rate was kept constant at 0.1 ml/min, with the fractional flow (fw) changed in sequence 0.85fw, 0.7fw, 0.5fw, 0.25fw, 0fw). The data set includes the tomograms and segmented data for a 1000x1000x1000 voxel cube (voxel size = 3.9 microns). This data set is described in detail in the publications: https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevE.100.043115 and https://journals.aps.org/pre/abstract/10.1103/PhysRevE.100.043103
