Les Rencontres Scientifiques d'IFP Energies nouvelles: Low Permeability Media and Nanoporous Materials. From Characterisation to Modelling: Can we do it better? [LowPerm2015]

9-11 June 2015
IFPEN/Rueil-Malmaison


>> Conference Highlights on-line

LowPerm2015 served as a platform for exchange and interaction between research and industry players from a variety of different disciplines working on the characterisation and modeling of low to very-low permeability media and nanoporous materials.

Media of this type are found in a broad range of scientific and technical fields, such as:

  • geological formations (shale, tight sandstone or carbonates, etc.),
  • concrete engineering,
  • polymer sheaths for pipelines,
  • nanofiltration for produced water treatment,
  • heterogeneous catalysis, etc.
       

These very different applications all face the same challenges:

  • the characterisation and modeling of these media and materials,
  • and the associated transport mechanisms at different scales.
      

Geoscientists, petrophysicists, physicists, thermodynamic experts, chemists, polymer researchers, catalysis specialists, etc., you are involved in disciplines dealing with low permeability media and nanoporous materials, have taken the opportunity to participate to this major event!
  

The conference program included cross-disciplinary sessions aimed at shedding light on recent breakthroughs concerning:

  • theoretical results,
  • advanced experimental devices and methodologies,
  • modelling approaches and case studies.
      

Main topics:

  • Characterisation at pore scale.
  • Competing physicochemical processes involved in fluid transport mechanisms at pore scale.
  • Low to very-low permeability media and nanoporous materials at macroscopic scale: impact of heterogeneities on fluid flow, homogeneisation techniques, etc.
