Permeability, relative permeability, recovery factor and caprock sealing capacity are among the most fundamental petrophysical properties in reservoir characterization, evaluation and modelling. These properties are difficult to measure, whereas pore size distributions are routinely measured by using mercury intrusion. This work presents a newly developed pore network model for evaluation of these petrophysical properties from pore size distributions.
