    Abstract

    A series of oil-water drainage-imbibition floods in laminated rock slabs were performed and X-ray CT imaging techniques were used to evaluate rock properties and monitor fluid saturation processes. Technical advances in X-ray measurement of fluid saturations in very heterogeneous rock slabs are described, as well as approaches for minimizing the beam hardening effect and suppressing high-frequency artefacts.
