Abstract

•A suite of laboratory and pore-scale CT-based modeling techniques are employed to determine the flow and transport parameters of Heletz sandstone (pore and grain size distribution, porosity, permeability, surface are of the pore space, tortuosity and capillary pressure–saturation relationships).•The amounts of minerals and the poor binding of the Heletz sandstone are revealed through cathodoluminescence microscopy, SEM/XRD and digital image analysis (DIA) on thin sections.•Porosity is determined from μ-CT reconstructed geometries and experimentally from buoyancy method, mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP), and DIA.•Permeability is determined from gas permeametry at ambient and overburden pressures, and μ-CT based Stokes modeling.•Permeability, capillary pressure–saturation relationships and surface area of the pore space from the μ-CT geometries are significantly affected by the scanning resolution.
