Core measurements

Rock physics core measurements were made by Zhijing Wang at Chevron's research facility Wang and Cates (1994). Six core samples were taken from the injection well location in the P and K formations prior to steamflooding. The samples range from clean fine sand, to clay/silt/sand. The samples show highly unconsolidated sedimentary material. Some samples show coarse sand pockets that might represent potential high-porosity, high-permeability micro channels.
