Analyse reservoir rocks with FEI’s imaging software

HeliscanDigital rock solutions provider FEI has released imaging software HeliScan microCT to help oil and gas companies analyse reservoir rocks in their hydrocarbon assets

According to the company, the HeliScan microCT system provides distortion-free imaging by combining proprietary methods, which reduces image acquisition time compared to conventional microCT.

Rudy Kellner, vice-president of FEI’s industry group, said, “The need to understand structural properties of reservoir rock is important as operators are trying to economically recover hydrocarbons from increasingly complicated reservoir conditions. Tight sands, unconventional exploration and enhanced recovery programmes in mature carbonates have very unique reservoir challenges. They can benefit from the solutions provided by digital rock imaging and expert multi-disciplinary analysis to help reduce risk, enable more confident predictions and improve development and production decisions.

“HeliScan microCT will provide accurate and high-resolution 3D images for exploration and production operators and research institutes to analyse reservoir rocks in hydrocarbon assets.”

The imaging software comes packaged with Avizo 3D data visualisation and analysis software, which provides scientists and engineers a tool to more accurately explore and characterise the reconstructed 3D images.
