    Abstract

    A significant relationship between global hydraulic elements (GHEs) and faciEs is shown to exist for different facies types which have historically been hard to distinguish. This link would not have been recognised using conventional hydraulic flow unit analysis (Amaefule et al, 1993), which is not able to compare data from different sample populations. The data used in the present study comprised almost 4000 core plugs derived from over 50 wells from a North African reservoir. Furthermore, a simple model was created to model the effects of grain size and sorting. This helped explain the observed distributions of facies on the GHE template. In addition, multiple regression for the different facies also allowed improved permeability prediction, compared to a single regression based on the entire dataset.
