A seal or cap rock through which fluid flow is so small that even during long geologic time only a small amount of fluids will have passed through. Cap rocks have permeabilities of the order of 10–6 to 10–8 darcies and very high capillary entry pressures. The most common seal rocks are shale or salt.
