The CT-Scan available at ANPERC provides nondestructive high-resolution images of core samples. It can perform a full core sample by performing several high-resolution scans at different vertical positions and automatically merging the reconstructed images into one volume.
Some of the application of the system available includes:
- The ability to obtain an overview of the different lithologies and local density variation from the core to pore scale
- To determine the porosity of a core sample
- Can include water, gas, surfactant and other floods as dictated by the recovery processes that are most suited for specific reservoirs
- Can perform studies on processes such as wormhole formation, gravity segregation, and channeling
