Characterization of Microstructures of Volcanic Gas Reservoirs

Reservoir microstructures refer to the geometry, size, distribution, and communication of pores and throats in reservoir rocks, which directly affect the reservoir accumulation and permeation capacity and ultimately determine the variable distribution of gas reservoir deliverability [1]. By means of core description, microscopic observation, and experimental analysis, the microstructural characterization of volcanic gas reservoirs can reveal the microscale shape, size, and accumulation capacity of volcanic reservoir spaces as well as the shape, scale, and permeation capacity of seepage pathways. It can also clarify the accumulation-permeation capacity and distribution characteristics ...
