Volume 4, Issue 2 , May 2015, , Pages 50-67

  The mathematical modeling of fracture networks is critical for the exploration and development of natural resources. Fractures can help the production of petroleum, water, and geothermal energy. They also greatly influence the drainage and production of methane gas from coal beds. Orientation and spatial ...  Read More

A Physical-based Model of Permeability/Porosity Relationship for the Rock Data of Iran Southern Carbonate Reservoirs

Sajjad Gholinezhad; Mohsen Masihi

Volume 1, Issue 1 , November 2012, , Pages 25-36

  The prediction of porosity is achieved by using available core and log data; however, the estimation of permeability is limited to the scare core data. Hence, porosity and saturation data through the framework of flow units can be used to make an estimation of reservoir permeability. The purpose of this ...  Read More
