Diagram of triaxial coreflood test system.<br/>The system allows for caprock samples to be<br/>analyzed under simulated real world pressures<br/>and temperatures. The system has integrated x-ray<br/>tomography and acoustics to allow for direct<br/>measurement of the conditions of mechanical failure<br/>and permeability of damage to shale resulting from<br/>brine and CO<sub>2</sub> injection.
