Laboratory equipments for core analysis

Until recently, a high level of expertise and knowledge of the principles and practice of NMR has been needed to perform NMR core analysis. Consequently, NMR core analysis has been confined to a relatively small group of Special Core Analysis Laboratories. Now, a partnership between Oxford Instruments and Green Imaging Technologies brings new hardware and software, with improved performance, to enable any core analysis laboratory to generate the petrophysics values that the industry needs without the requirement that every dataset be analysed by an NMR expert.

Now, any core analysis laboratory can add NMR to the techniques they can offer, allowing:

  • Well Log Calibration

and giving fast measurement of:

  • Total Porosity
  • Pore Size Distribution
  • Bulk Volume Irreducible (BVI)
  • Free Fluid Index (FFI)
  • Clay Bound Water (CBW)
  • Permeability
  • Capillary Pressure
  • Gas/Water Content
  • Oil/Water Content
  • Pore throat distribution
  • Wettability
  • Fluid Typing
