ABSTRACT

This paper shows a petrophysical characterization of carbonate rocks extracted from two outcrops in the middle-east of Cretaceous and Oligocene ages.

Carbonates are commonly heterogeneous, presenting an array of constituents, textures, structures, diagenetic features and varied pore geometry that affect the petrophysical properties and influence the behavior of the relationship between porosity and permeability. Such characterization consisted of measurements of bulk and grain density, porosity, gas permeability, P-wave velocity as well as mineral content estimation.

By using a multivariate analysis, it was possible to find out an empirical model to correlate permeability to porosity and P-wave velocity. The results are expected to improve the understanding of those types of rock.
