Low field Magnetic Resonance Imaging is used to study oil diffusion in a wet soil model. A complete discrimination between oil and water has been obtained by using Inversion-Recovery pulse sequence. The time evolution of the oil image gives the parameters which describe the dense fluid diffusion rate in the whole space directions.
