Saner and Sahin (1999) considered the porosity and permeability distributions for the Arab-D reservoir in the Uthmaniyah field, Saudi Arabia, and presented summaries of the data by (1) reservoir zone and (2) lithofacies type. They identified three lithofacies types, granular, muddy-granular, and muddy, and described the permeability and porosity distributions by layer and by lithofacies. This approach, breaking down the lithofacies, is broadly following that promoted by Lucia (1999) because Saner and Sahin assumed that the pore types are lithofacies-controlled. This approach is suggested by the representative photomicrographs shown in Saner and Sahin (1999). Although they considered the variability,...
