Small Plug Porosity and Permeability


  • Rapid, fully automated operation.
  • Small plugs, both 1 inch and 1.5 inch can be analyzed using the CMS-300 instrument.
  • Triaxial pressure, unsteady-state instrument provides a wide variety of data using the latest technologies.
  • Standard porosity and permeability measurements, plus Klinkenberg permeability, alpha, beta and slip factor measurements are provided in the output data set.
  • Multiple overburden pressure points, beginning at 800 psi can be run to determine the effects of pressure on porosity and permeability.
  • Low porosity reduction and fracture closure evaluation.

Standard Porosity and Permeability

  • Provides total porosity (steady state) measurement using an extended range helium porosimeter.
  • Porosity measurements are at ambient overburden pressure.

  • Permeability (steady state) measurements are taken using a Frank Jones Air Permeameter.
  • Permeability measurements are take at variable overburden pressures.
