Laboratory velocity analyses of sandstone core from the Blackfoot field, Alberta

Eric V. Gallant and Robert R. Stewart


This short note describes elastic velocity experiments in progress, on core from the Blackfoot field, under overburden pressure, at the University of Calgary . We have built an ultrasonic measurement system in conjunction with the Porous Media Laboratory at the University of Calgary. Future experiments include both P and S as a function of differential pressure.
