Statistical relationships among some formation parameters for Sherwood Sandstone, England

  • M. O. Olorunfemi


Statistical analysis of laboratory data indicates that intergranular permeability of the Sherwood Sandstone is influenced mainly by its porosity and matrix conductivity. At weak electrolyte concentrations, matrix conductivity is the most significant factor influencing induced polarization of saturated Sherwood Sandstone.
