3 ABSTRACT In this experiment, our group measured various characteristics of the Brea Sandstone Type 1 and Type 2 core samples. The porosity, grain density, grain volume, and gas permeability of these samples were measured using various machines. We determined the porosity of the Brea Sandstone type 1 using the Porosimeter Machine, TPI-219 to be 17.67%, and the Type 2 sample to be 26.59%. We found the grain density of the Type 1 and Type 2 samples using this machine to be 2.67 and 2.64 , respectively. Using the PORG, the calculated porosity was 29.6% and 40.4% for the Type 1 and Type 2 Brea Sandstone respectively.

4 INTRODUCTION When a new reservoir is discovered a series of tests and measurements must be conducted on the formation. Of these measurements, the main factors that determine the economic potential of a reservoir are the permeability and porosity. The permeability of a rock is
