The challenges faced by engineers and geoscientists evaluating unconventional reservoirs of the 21st century clearly
demonstrate the necessity for data of the highest quality. It was a response to this client need that drove Core
Laboratories to develop the Nano-PermTM. Every aspect of the instrumentation for the Nano-Perm was designed to
provide the highest level of data confidence for evaluating sub-microdarcy permeability.
This state of the art, steady-state device provides the flexibility to vary the confining stress from 1000 psig
to 10,000 psig. Precise control of the flow rate makes it possible to build a robust data set which allows for
a Klinkenberg corrected permeability
