Evaluation of calculated connate water saturation values in case of unconventional rock samples
Kulcsszavak:connate water saturation, tight sandstone and marl
The present study represents possibilities of calculating the connate water saturation - CWS - values of samples from unconventional reservoirs and how to evaluate the obtained result. CWS is an extremely important property of the reservoir rocks. It basically determines the value of the resource and can also predict production technology difficulties. For the samples included in the measurement program, significant or extremely high CWS values were determined. Analysis of the corrected pore size distribution proved to be the most appropriate method for interpreting CWS values, although, it also shows some correlation with the most frequent pore radius - MFPR - and porosity.
