Using Wettability to Understand Log Response
Digital Rock Provides Predictive Insight to Oil Recovery
To understand the log data patterns in a discontinuous sandstone reservoir, Newfield Exploration engaged Thermo Fisher Scientific's digital rock experts to conduct a pore-scale wettability study with a goal to optimize primary oil production as well as to increase secondary recovery from waterflooding. Understanding the nature and connectivity of the porosity system is a key first step to predicting waterflood performance. Read the full article to learn more about how digital rock improves log interpretation and provides insight to potential recovery scenarios by visually linking pore:fluid and pore:mineral associations to initial and residual hydrocarbon saturations.
