Unit Converters

Permeability Converter

Permeability plays a critical role in geology and petroleum engineering as it directly impacts the flow of fluids through rocks and sediments. It’s essential in various applications such as oil and gas exploration, reservoir characterization, well testing, and production optimization.

What is Permeability Converter?

The Permeability Converter serves as a useful tool for professionals in the petroleum industry, geologists, and researchers who need to work with permeability data and convert values between different units for analysis and comparison purposes. Permeability calculator is the permeability of reservoir rocks helps determine the potential for oil and gas production and facilitates the design of efficient extraction methods.;

Permeability is commonly expressed in units of Darcy (D), but there are various units of measurement for permeability in different systems.

How to calculate Permeability Converter?

The calculation of permeability for a porous medium can be determined using Darcy's law; formula for permeability conversion is as follows:

Permeability (k) = (Q * µ * L) / (A * ΔP)


  • k - permeability of the porous medium.
  • Q - volumetric flow of the fluid through the medium.
  • µ - viscosity of the fluid.
  • L - length of the fluid in the flow direction.
  • A - cross-sectional area of the fluid perpendicular to the flow direction.
  • ΔP - pressure drop across liquid.


How to use the Permeability Converter?

To use the permeability converter, follow these steps:

  1. Enter the tool.
  2. Choose the desired unit of measurement you want to convert to.
  3. The converted permeability value will be displayed.

Are there any limitations to the Permeability Converter?

The converter is designed to provide accurate conversions between common units of permeability. However, it's always advisable to double-check the results and refer to reliable sources for precise conversions, especially when dealing with less common or specialized units.
