The microstructure of porous materials allows us to understand, and predict, key transport properties such as fluid permeability. Using models derived from real sandstones, we examine the relative importance of pore size and pore connectivity in controlling flow. Pore connectivity, especially at scales near the resolution limits of typical investigation approaches, is very sensitive to variations that can be introduced during model segmentation, hence introducing a significant uncertainty in property prediction.
