Applied Res. Engineering (PE-453), Fall -2007. Dr. S. El-Usta Reservoir Pore-Volume Calculations: 1- Iso-Pach (net-pay thickness) Method: The net pay thickness map of the reservoir is prepared by placing the value of net pay thickness for each well on the location map. Then drawing the contours on the map. Calculate the areas in (feet 2 ) enclosed by each contour using a graph paper, or the proper software. Calculate V b (ft 3 ) using Pyramid rule, or Trapezoidal rule. Calculate average porosity of the reservoir and the average initial water saturation of the reservoir. Calculate the volume of the Oil Initial In Place using the following equation: oi wi b B 5.615 ) S (1 φ V OIIP(STB) Where Boi = formation volume factor at initial reservoir pressure(Pi.)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
