    Abstract

    Production from unconventional petroleum resources grows in popularity last few years. Despite the wide spread of shale formations around the world and a lot of scientific efforts provided, discovery of the optimal oil recovery technology for unconventional shale reservoirs is still a task of the near future. Development of such technologies requires solid understanding of physical processes in shales at micro and nano-level. Great advances are expected in this area with the help of numerical simulations conducated on a digital rock domain. The presented material describes preparation of digital rock model intended for study of hydrodynamical and geomechanical processes in Bazhen formation of Western Sybiria. The data for the model were acquired with a microtomograph device at resolution of 0.5 microns/ voxel. Image processing techniques were applied and the results were matched to petrophysical and mieral component study conducted in the laboratory.
