Estimation of Rock Physical Parameters Based on Digital Rock Physics Image, Case Study: Blok Cepu Oil Field, Central Java, Indonesia

Modern technique to estimate of the physical properties of rocks can be done by means of digital imaging and numerical simulation, an approach known as digital rock physics (DRP: Digital Rock Physics). Digital rock physics modeling is useful to understand microstructural parameters of rocks (pores and rock matrks), quite quickly and in detail. In this paper a study was conducted on sandstone reservoir samples in a rock formation. The core of sandstone samples were calculated porosity, permeability, and elasticity parameters in the laboratory. Then performed digital image processing using CT-Scan that utilizes X-ray tomography. The result of digital image is processed and done by calculation of digital simulation to calculate porosity, permeability, and elastic parameter of sandstones. In addition, there are also predictions of p-wave velocity and wave -S using the empirical equations given by Han (1986), Raymer (1990), and Nur (1998). The results of digital simulation (DRP) in this study provide a higher than the calculations in the laboratory. The digital rock physics method (DRP) combined with rock physics modeling can be a practical and rapid method for determining the rock properties of tiny (microscopic) rock fragments
