Collection description

This dataset consists of three-dimensional images of rock samples made using x-ray computed tomography (X-CT). The rock samples were small pieces of core obtained from oil wells in SE Hungary. The rock properties are relevant to the development of a geothermal energy project in the Hungarian town of Mezőberény. Such imagery can be used for numerical simulation of flow through the rocks, to determine hydraulic properties, demonstrating that useful information on these properties can be obtained using these techniques, when the only material available is legacy fragments of core that are much too small for conventional laboratory experiments. The results will interest a wide audience, including the petrophysics community as well as geothermal practitioners. By eliminating the need for expensive bespoke coring to obtain reservoir properties, analysis of this type will contribute to reducing the capital cost of developing geothermal energy projects, thus facilitating decarbonization of global energy supply.
