Details

A rig developed recently for measuring pore wettability; the effect of pore size, pore roughness, pore surface chemistry and fluid properties on the pore wettability. Sample data has been taken for static and dynamic pore wettability for DI water, 1-propanol, n-decane and crude oil in glass capillaries with a size of 50µm-1000µm.

Specifications / Key Features
  • Experimental rigs for measurement of pore wettability and multiphase flow in single pores and core samples
  • Applications in Enhanced Oil Recovery
Example Projects
  • Study on CO₂ Storage at Pore Scale funded by the Royal Society
  • Applications in Enhanced Oil Recovery
