English term or phrase: porosity
Definition from Canadian Association Petroleum Producers:
The volume of spaces within rock that might contain oil and gas (like the amount of water a sponge can hold); the open or void space within rock – usually expressed as a percentage of the total rock volume. Thus porosity measures the capacity of the rock to hold natural gas, crude oil or water.

Example sentence(s):
  • The porosity profile in any individual well depends on the maximum effective stress, which is generally determined by the maximum burial depth. U.S. Geological Survey
  • Carbonate reservoirs have lower values of median and maximum porosity for a given burial depth, probably because of greater chemical reactivity of carbonate minerals relative to quartz and the resulting lower resistance to chemical compaction and associated cementation. GeoScienceWorld
  • Porosity and permeability reduction due to burial and compaction acts differently on different sediment types. Sandstone is more resistant to porosity and perm reduction due to compaction, whereas shales and siltstone are generally more prone to perm reduction. All Experts

Definition from own experience or research:
Porositas adalah ukuran kandungan pori atau ruang kosong terhadap massa padat dalam tanah atau bebatuan.

Example sentence(s):
  • Batupasir merupakan salah satu dari batuan sedimen klastik yang mempunyai porositas cukup baik dan biasanya berfungsi sebagai reservoir atau akuifer. - Teknik Geologi - Universitas Gajah Mada  
  • Implikasinya adalah harga Vp akan sangat dipengaruhi oleh besarnya porositas, fluida yg mengisi porositas dan tekanan. sedangkan harga Vs hanya akan dipengaruhi oleh jenis matrix-nya dan tekanan. - Mi-Gas Indonesia  
  • Salah satu parameter untuk menghitung cadangan adalah porositas. Untuk menghitung besar porositas digunakan persamaan empiris, hubungan antara modulus Young (E)dengan porositas ), yang dikembangkan oleh Piggot (1990). - ITB Digital Library  

Latar belakang formal saya adalah dari jurusan Teknik Geofisika Institut Teknologi Bandung. Sewaktu kuliah saya sangat sering dan familiar dengan kata ini sehingga saya sangat yakin dengan definisi yang saya berikan.
