Interest of worm-like micelles (WLM) in porous media has grown in oil industries as a rock fracturing fluid due to its fluid rheology properties. Non-invasive techniques like NMR are ideal for observing and monitoring non-Newtonian fluids. This research presents data collected using NMR techniques with Cetyl trimethyl ammonium toluene (CTAT) wormlike micelles flowing through porous media. Deviations from Gaussian behavior in displacement distributions are quantified, and effects of WLM in fluid flowing through porous media was observed.
