The CO2CRC Otway stage 2B residual saturation and dissolution test: test concept, implementation and data collected

This interim report provides an account of the Otway Stage 2B design and field operations for the CO2 residual saturation and dissolution test, which is the first field test of this nature in the world. The execution and summary of the data obtained from the field test are included in the report. Residual trapping was measured by five different techniques in the test, each with a different radius of investigation. Excellent quality data was acquired throughout the field program. Detailed analysis of the five tests has subsequently commenced and a detailed analysis will be released in a future CO2CRC report.
