This event took place on Friday, September 20, 2013 and celebrated the establishment of the Digital Rock Physics Laboratory at the University of Wyoming (UW). The event was sponsored by Hess Corporation, the UW School of Energy Resources (SER), and UW Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering. This new, state-of-the-art research facility is located on the 3rd floor of UW's Energy Innovation Center (EIC) and includes unique imaging instruments capable of mapping pore space and pore fluid occupancy in rock samples, and other porous materials, over a wide range of scales and resolutions. The instruments have been integrated with miniature core-flooding systems to enable the study of a broad spectrum of multiphase flow in porous media processes at different scales with applications in, for instance, oil and gas recovery from unconventional and conventional reservoirs. The event included a set of technical seminars by world-renowned scientists as well as a ribbon cutting ceremony.
