Nano-Permeability

Gas Permeameter for Shales ‘Nanoperm’

Manufacturer: Vinci Technologies
Model Number: Nanoperm

The computer-controlled Nanoperm instrument is specifically designed to precisely measure the ultra-low permeability (to Nitrogen) of very tight plug-sized rock samples from unconventional reservoirs, such as tight gas sandstones and gas shales. Permeability measurements are made using the steady state Darcy’s method at user-selectable confining pressures (from 400 psi to 10,000 psi). The instrument is designed for the injection of gas through cores at various pore pressures. The unit is also capable of measuring gas flow rates though the core as low as 10-6 cm3/sec to an accuracy of a few percent and can measure steady state gas permeability with a resolution of +/-0.1nD.r:



NER Autolab System 3000

Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autolab 3000

AutoLab 3000 is a customizable servo-hydraulic operated system for triaxial measurements with software-controlled arbitrary stress paths on rock specimens up to 101.6 mm (4.0 in) in diameter at in situ stress conditions, pore pressure, and temperature. The pressure vessel and pore pressure systems are housed in an external furnace to maintain a uniform temperature in the vessel and pore fluids throughout the experiment.

The high pressure triaxial system consists of a pressure vessel with an internal piston for differential stress and servo-hydraulic intensifiers for differential stress, confining and pore pressure. This design is convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 138 MPa (20,000 psi) and temperatures up to 150˚C (302˚F).

This design comes in two standard configurations, making it convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 69 MPa (10,000 psi) or 138 MPa (20,000 psi) and temperatures up to 120˚C (248˚F).



NER Autolab System 1000

Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autolab 1000

AutoLab 1000 is a servo-hydraulic operated system for hydrostatic measurements of compressional and shear wave velocities, permeability, electrical resistivity, pore volume compressibility, acoustic emissions, and linear compressibility on rock specimens up to 50.8 mm (2.0 in) in diameter at in situ overburden pressure, pore pressure and temperature.

The AutoLab 1000 optionally can have a load frame.

The high pressure system consists of a pressure vessel and servo-hydraulic intensifiers for confining and pore pressure. This design is convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 103 MPa (15,000 psi) and temperatures up to 120˚C (248˚F).
