Discovering Oil in Complex Geographies: Rise in Core Wettability Characterization Method 

March 25, 2020


Improves measurement of wettability across any set of reservoir fluids

Technology Overview

Reservoir wettability is one of the most important parameters that control many aspects of the performance and quantification of hydrocarbon reservoirs. The developed method determines core wettability characteristics of reservoir rock samples based on a modified form of the Washburn equation. The method involves saturating a core sample with a reservoir fluid such as water and imbibing with another fluid such as oil.
