Abstract

Determination of the petrophysical properties in carbonate reservoirs takes high priority as accurate measurements of the petrophysical properties allow the simulation of the flow of the reservoir. The objective of this project is to determine the petrophysical properties of limestone formation in Gunung Kantan, Sungai Siput, Perak. The petrophysical properties that are involved with the projects are porosity, permeability, sonic velocity, determination of the crystal type and determination of the type of rock. The experimentation of the rock sample begins with collection of the rock sample at Gunung Kantan, Sungai Siput, Perak. A total of 11 samples are taken from 3 different sites around Gunung Kantan. The first experiment is the determination of the porosity and permeability of rock samples. The experiment is done using the mercury porosimeter as the normal poroperm machine could not detect the amount of porosity and permeability that exist within the rock samples. The result of the experiment is that the rock samples contain a small amount of porosity (max. 6 %) and small amount of permeability (max. 0.14 mD). The second experiment is the determination of the type of the rock. In this experiment author prepares several thin section from the rock samples and determine the rock type by microscopic sketch approved by the lab assistant. The rock samples were found to be from packstone type which contains grain-supported structure within the presence of mud. The determination of type of rock also involves an experiment with the X-Ray Diffraction. The experiment uses powder from the rock samples and the result from the experiment is that the rock samples are limestone with the presence of a small amount of magnesium. The third experiment is the determination of the grain shape. In the experiment, author prepares several samples for Scanning Electron Microscope. The experiment objective is to find the type of crystal that exists within the rock samples. The result of the experiment is there are two types of crystal that exists within the rock samples which is compact anhedral crystal and micro rhombic polyhedral crystal.
