Abstract

This project try to establish and investigate the correlations between rock physical properties (porosity, permeability and sonic velocity) of carbonates rocks from Gunung Rapat, Ipoh, Perak. Generally, correlations between rock physical properties of the carbonates are not easy to be established as compared to siliclastic sedimentary rocks due to the heterogeneity that they have in terms of pore type, grains and geometry. We used correlations of porosity-sonic velocity, permeability-sonic velocity and porositypermeability in order to study the inter-relationship between the carbonate rocks physical properties. The preliminary results show a large scatter in the correlations of porositysonic velocity, permeability-sonic velocity and porosity-permeability thus indicates the heterogeneity of pore types, structure and distribution in the carbonates. From the SEM images, we found that the scattered correlations are may due to different kinds of microporosity and micrite microtextures presence in the carbonate rocks and also due to the variations in pore geometry. This study has a great significance in the process of a better understanding of how rock properties of carbonates relate to each other.
