A methodology was developed to address known challenges related to core measurements in tight unconventional reservoirs specifically for characterizing pore space and its content. This methodology integrates several measurement procedures, including thermal extraction (retort) followed by chemical extraction, NMR, and geochemical analysis, to provide porosity, saturation, and quantified characterization of organic matter (TOC). We outline how this methodology compares to other established industry techniques for porosity and saturation measurements in tight rocks (GRI, TRA, etc.)  and what new insight it offers in understanding pore space and rock-fluid interactions. Additionally, extracted fluids are captured during thermal extraction within a closed chamber and used for further geochemical characterization. This collection provides significant value in context of produced fluids and reservoir monitoring (production allocation and time lapse geochemistry).

We will illustrate the application of this workflow using two case studies. Our first application is from the Niobrara formation, Powder River Basin and discusses the results of heating experiments made possible by the described methodology. In our second application, the method is applied to both preserved and unpreserved Wolfcamp core in the Permian basin, and results are discussed highlighting advantages and limitations. Our initial findings are encouraging and show useful information from an unpreserved core in tight rocks.
