The results of the porosity and permeability study of the carbonate samples came from the 1 Yun’yaha borehole are discussed. This study was carried out using traditional and tomographic methods. X-ray tomography demonstrates connection of the porosity and permeability of the studied samples with pore morphology and lithological and genetic types of sediments.
Key words: microtomography, lithology, carbonates, porosity, permeability.
