Ingrain offers measurement of cores/drill cuttings using patented calculation methodologies to compute rock properties & fluid flow directly on complex pore networks based on rock physics, determining porosity, multi-phase permeability, elasticity & other properties. We can directly image the 3D pore structure of oil sand on irregularly sized and shaped fragments as they come from a well.

Moreover, we can apply a numerical re-compaction procedure to such digital objects to close the large pore gaps presumably introduced by the expansion of the oil at surface conditions.
