The majority of carbonate reservoir rocks have been developed using conventional development schemes, owing to the presence of macropores that are the product of depositional textures modified by diagenesis. Carbonate reservoir heterogeneity is complex, due to ternary porosity distributions composed of matrix, vugs, and fractures. Recently, matrix-related microporosity has been recognized as an important control on storage capacity and hydraulic conductivity of hydrocarbons. With the advancement of completion technologies for low-permeability reservoirs, quantifying the matrix-related microporosity, understanding pore size and pore throat distributions has become increasingly important. Matrix porosity contribution is often overshadowed by the relative contribution from vugs...
