This course provides theoretical introduction to basic rock properties and their core-based measurements in the laboratory. Reservoir rock properties determined by conventional core analysis and special core analysis will be covered. It will be discussed how to obtain reliable core analysis data and the specific topics addressed include porosity and permeability, Darcy’s law and its applications/limitations, fluid saturation, wett ability, capillary pressure, relative permeability, resistivity, comprehensibility and the effect of internal and external forces on rock physical properties.
