Or what was Digital Core
As the leading provider of 3D, high resolution, image based core analysis and petrophysical services to the oil and gas industry, Digitalcore specializes in the analyses of sidewall, unconsolidated/friable cores, cuttings and other unconventional core material including complex carbonates, tar sands, tight gas, shale gas and coal.
Digitalcore uses its own custom built, advanced micro-CT imaging systems equipped with patented HeliScan™ technology to produce the highest quality images. Focused Ion Beam (FIBSEM) imaging systems are also used to achieve nanometer resolutions.
Digitalcore’s patented VoxelPerfect™ image registration process provides seamless integration of both 3D images at multiple length scales and 2D microscopy data (thin-section and SEM-EDS), allowing characterization of micro-porosity, micro-fractures, clay mineralogy and in-situ fluid distributions at the pore scale.
Direct imaging of multi-phase fluid distributions combined with VoxelPerfect™ 3D image registration allows determination of relative permeabilities, residual saturations and resistivity at reservoir wettability conditions using low invasion or restored-state core. High resolution analysis and upscaling combined with a fully integrated service provide high-quality input data for static and dynamic reservoir models. This is critical to reservoir characterization/analysis and the reduction of uncertainty in reserve estimates.
Digitalcore’s technical specialists assist clients in developing cost-effective core and SCAL testing programs and integrating results with conventional core, well log and test data to enhance the quality and value of available petrophysical data.
Recognized as world leading technology, Digitalcore continues to extend the boundaries through the creation of new products and services to meet our clients most challenging needs. Recently these include mapping of wettability and direct imaging of oil-in-place in native state core.
Digitalcore is committed to providing clients with quality assured data and significantly reduced turnaround times compared with conventional core analysis.
Digitalcore is a leading edge provider of 3D high-resolution image based core analysis services to the oil and gas industry. Services range from standard petrophysical analysis – porosity, permeability, elastic properties, NMR response and mineralogy through to capillary pressure, relative permeability, residual saturations, electrical resistivity, wettability and EOR studies.
Digitalcore’s advanced micro-CT imaging systems utilize revolutionaty HeliScanTM technology to produce highest quality images at sub-micron resolution for whole core, conventional core plugs, sidewall core down to small rock fragments. Focused ion beam imaging systems are used to achieve nano-meter resolutions. Digitalcore’s unique VoxelPerfectTM image registration process provides seamless integration of 3D images at multiple length scales, microscopy and thin-section and Qemscan (SEM-EDS) data to allow characterisation of micro-porosity, micro-fractures, clays mineralogy and in-situ fluid distributions at the pore-scale. This provides accurate characterisation of complex rock systems such as silty sandstones, carbonates, shales, coals and tar sands. Direct imaging of multi-phase fluid distributions allows relative permeabilities, residual saturations and resistivity to be determined at reservoir wettability conditions using low invasion core or restored-state core.
