In this experiment we used nitrogen and we controlled the pressure using the “Gas Permeameter”. To begin the experiment we started off with measuring the temperature and pressure of the room. Next step was to use the gas permeameter; we placed our core sample in the core holder. After placing the core in the core holder we applied the pressure and stopped at four different pressures 10, 20, 35 and 55. After applying each set of pressure. The nitrogen flowed through the core holder which then passed by the bubble flow meter. From the bubble flow meter we get the time for which the bubble take to acquire the distance. After getting the data from the bubble flow meter we calculate the acquire the distance....
