Visualizing Enhanced Oil Recovery in Carbonate Reservoirs

Carbonate reservoirs contain a majority of the world’s petroleum reserves, and they are one of the more challenging geologic formations to characterize. Within these reservoirs, porosity and permeability can be highly complex and vary widely with little spatial correlation. Initial and secondary porosities can range from low porosity intergranular/inter-crystalline primary to cavernous karst secondary (very…
