Special core analysis

In the petroleum industry, special core analysis, often abbreviated SCAL or SPCAN, is a laboratory procedure[1] for conducting flow experiments on core plugs taken from a petroleum reservoir. Special core analysis is distinguished from "routine or conventional core analysis" by adding more experiments, in particular including measurements of two-phase flow properties, determining relative permeability and capillary pressure.
