A multi-scale experimental investigation of flow properties in coarse-grained hydrate reservoirs during production


No License Restrictions

Final Report FE0028967 - This project will explore the relative permeability of coarse‐grained reservoirs and the response of these reservoirs to depressurization at the macro‐ (1 m) and micro‐ (1x10‐6 m) scale. At the macro‐scale (e.g., 0.1 m to 1 m sand‐pack cores, eventually moving to natural Gulf of Mexico (GoM) cores), researchers will determine relative permeability and perform production tests (pressure dissipation). Simultaneously, they will perform micro computed tomography (micro‐CT) and micro‐Raman analysis to understand the habit and phase distribution at the micro- (pore) scale and will examine the evolution of these properties during dissipation. The project will develop constitutive relationships to describe these processes and inform reservoir simulation efforts.
