Porosity, permeability, relative permeability, conductivity and capillary pressure are of the most important parameters measured, or interpreted from laboratory testing.
Porosity and capillary pressure are important parameters for calculations of hydrocarbons in place (OIIP & GIIP). While permeability and relative permeability are important in-put for calculations of production profiles from an oil or gas field, and hence for the estimation of recovery from a potential reservoir.
