Capturing digital rock properties for reservoir modeling ///

In trying to evaluate and model a rapidly expanding inventory of US and international discoveries, Noble Energy initiated a project that used Ingrain’s digital rock physics technology in March 2009. Noble Energy saw a competitive advantage in using the new approach in quickly determining reservoir parameters and rock properties. Proprietary micro-CT scanning technology was used to image and segment samples from a deepwater clastic Miocene reservoir in order to compute rock properties. The computed rock properties included porosity, absolute permeability, formation factor and relative permeability. The digital modeling process took only 30 days to complete.
