Core Flooding & Slim Tube Testing

Through core flooding and slim tube testing, we increase our understanding of a particular reservoir’s rock properties and the expected behavior of different EOR processes and flow of fluids, allowing reservoir engineers to test and optimize EOR treatments based on known reservoir rock. We add the results from core flooding and slim tube testing into computer simulations that are scaled up to reservoir size for final project design and economic evaluation.

Laboratory Capabilities

TIORCO's core flooding laboratory is equipped with three fully automated state-of-the-art core flooding systems. These systems are rated to 350°F and 6000 psi and designed to test cores up to 12 inches long and 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter.

The system also accommodates foam flooding and slim-tube sand packs for testing polymer gel systems that require long-term injection for full development of flow resistance factors. Among TIORCO laboratory capabilities are core cutting, fluid saturation measurements and imbibition and wettability alteration assessments.
