Cydarex has developed techniques to measure permeability from drill cuttings and small rock samples, using DarcyLog and DarcyPress.
Measurements on cuttings (small rock samples of a few mm in length) can improve reservoir characterization when cores are not available. In most wells, properties measured on cuttings are representative of the matrix properties.
Details on the techniques can be found in the following SCA publication:
