Porosity and permeability porosity percentage of open pore space in a rock permeability ability of fluid to move through pores

Porosity and Permeability

Porosity: percentage of open (pore)

space in a rock

Permeability: ability of fluid to move

through pores


Porosity and permeability porosity percentage of open pore space in a rock permeability ability of fluid to move through pores

Porosity

Fill a swimming pool with marbles

Fill a swimming pool with tennis balls

Which will have the greater porosity?


Porosity and permeability porosity percentage of open pore space in a rock permeability ability of fluid to move through pores

Porosity

Which will have the greater porosity?


Porosity and permeability porosity percentage of open pore space in a rock permeability ability of fluid to move through pores

Marcellus Shale is an example of an

unconventional reservoir rock:

it possesses porosity but lacks permeability

Employment for Geologists

“Employment growth of 18 percent is expected for geoscientists and hydrologists between 2008 and 2018, which is faster than the average for all occupations. The need for energy, environmental protection, and responsible land and water management will spur employment demand.”

--US Dept. of Labor, 2010-2011
