    Description: We utilize synchrotron X‐ray tomographic imaging to investigate the pore‐scale characteristics and residual trapping of supercritical CO (scCO) over the course of multiple drainage‐imbibition (D‐I) cycles in Bentheimer sandstone cores. Capillary pressure measurements are paired with X‐ray image‐derived saturation and connectivity metrics which describe the extent of drainage and subsequent residual (end of imbibition) scCO trapping. For the first D‐I cycle, residual scCO trapping is suppressed due to high imbibition capillary number (Ca ≈ 10); however, residual scCO trapping dramatically increases for subsequent D‐I cycles carried out at the same Ca value. This behavior is not predicted by conventional multiphase trapping theory. The magnitude of scCO trapping increase is hysteretic and depends on the relative extent of the sequential drainage processes. The hysteretic pore‐scale behavior of the scCO‐brine‐sandstone system observed in this study suggests that cyclic multiphase flow could potentially be used to increase scCO trapping for sequestration applications. We observe cyclic pore‐scale behavior of supercritical CO2 (scCO2) via synchrotron X‐ray microtomography Residual scCO2 saturation increases over multiple drainage‐imbibition (D‐I) cycles reaching a value of 50% after three cycles The ultimate driver for this behavior may be a combination of cycling and associated surface chemistry reactions
