Alaskan Unconventional Shale Core Characterization
The Computed Tomography (CT) facilities at the National Energy Technology Laboratory (NETL) in Morgantown, West Virginia were used to characterize unconventional shale cores from Alaskan formations, including a sample from the North Slope. As most of the wells on the North Slope target conventional sandstone reservoirs, these samples have not been well characterized previously. The work to be presented is an early glimpse to the potential of these formations.
