Permeability is the ability of a substance to allow another substance to pass through it, especially the ability of a porous rock, sediment, or soil to transmit fluid through pore and cracks. Permeability is one of the most important parameters in reservoir characterization. It plays major role in reservoir simulation, enhanced oil recovery, well completion design, and overall field exploitation and development strategies. Despite its vital importance, it is one of the most difficult and controversial petrophysical properties to calculate accurately.

During this course concepts of core preparation, core measurement, core analysis types and procedures will be explained. The petrophysical rock properties such as porosity, permeability, grain density, saturation and porosity-permeability relations in different rock facies will be studied. The relationship between these parameters under in situ conditions will be discussed. The trainer will provide the relationship between core analysis data and logging measurements for depth matching, understanding abnormal log readings and to obtain different petrophysical parameters with focus on reservoir permeability prediction.

At the end of the course, the participants will be able to know permeability determination from logging tools such as NMR, MDT and PLT. Learn permeability estimation from log measurements and results using porosity with Swirr cross plot, and from Morris-Biggs and Timur equations. Improve productivity from permeability transform with the support of case study, examples and practical exercises.
