Estimated Time to Complete:

1 hour 20 minutes

(average of 20 minutes per Subtopic)

Outlines basic characteristics of reservoir lithologies and discusses identification, measurement and evaluation of reservoir conditions in rocks. Considers reservoir properties which determine overall quality: porosity, permeability, and their interrelationship; diagenetic effects and reservoir continuity. Stresses the different requirements for evaluation of clastic and carbonate reservoirs.
