Deep Direct-Use Feasibility Study Estimation of Reservoir Properties for the Tuscarora Sandstone


This dataset contains black-and-white photographic images of individual core segments from well Preston 119 and photomicrographs taken of petrographic thin sections from well Clay 513. Minipermeameter measurement results of 2,260 samples for fracture and matrix permeability on core segments for well Preston 119. These results are summarized in figures, spreadsheets, and PowerPoints. Microsoft Excel will be necessary to examine the permeability data and software capable of reading a .PDF file will be needed to view the file of annotated core CT scans. Microsoft Powerpoint will be necessary to view the photomicrograph presentation.
