The capillary pressure workflow is a particular feature of Q-SCAL:
- Data corrections include closure, stress, clay, equilibrium state and other adjustments, depending on the type of cap.pressure experiment. Quality control is an essential element of data preparation.
- Conversion to reservoir conditions (saturation-height) is an interactive process where you can visually understand the influence of surface tension, contact angle and other reservoir variables, validating your decisions against supporting data.
- Estimation of residual saturations based on reservoir closure or other criteria.
- Typing of sample data by Lambda, Thomeer , Skelt-Harrison, J-Function and other common algorithms.
- Group fitting of field-, well- or lithology-based datasets on porosity or permeability criteria. Alternatively, you can search for relationships between saturation-height fitting parameters and other sample characteristics – porosity and permeability of course, but also grain density, lithology and so on.
- Generation of type curves by statistical or visual analysis of the data set allows you to optimize your saturation height functions, vital for hydrocarbon-in-place estimations and correct initialization of the dynamic model.
