(664a) A Comprehensive Investigation of Pore Body Size Characterization of Shale Formation
AIChE Annual Meeting
Tuesday, November 16, 2021 - 10:30am to 12:00pm
The presentation will clarify the importance of pore body distribution and when it controls the transport properties. We will also discuss the standard techniques required for such characterization: nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), gas adsorption, and mercury intrusion capillary pressure (MICP). We will clarify the advantages and disadvantages of the three methods. In addition, we will review relevant models used for interpretation. Further, we will highlight the effects of mineralogy and organic content.
The presented results will have applications for comprehensive pore size characterization of unconventional gas. It will review the most recent advances for characterizing pore-scale features within the last decade.
