Saturation : is the ratio of the fluid rock to the rock pore volume Types of saturation : 1. water saturation S o 2. oil saturation S w 3. gas saturation S g method to determne of saturation : 1. Retort method 2. Dean starck method 1. Retort mthod : Steps of ths method : Take two sample from the same depth then forehand cut. Sample#1 1. weight sample sw 1 2. crushed sample then put n the sample cell then heat to 170c o . 3. heat to (650_800). Sample #2 1. weight sample sw 2 2. put saturated sample in the sample cell (mercury methd) then calculate following: Vg 1 = Vp 1 - Vp o Vb 2 = Vb 1 – Vb o Vg 1 =Vg 2 *(Ws 1 /Ws 2 ) Vb 2 = Vb 1 *(Ws 1 /Ws 2 )

Vp = Vo +Vw +Vg Disadvantage of this method : 1. higher temperature will cause higher recovery water than connate water by crystallization within rock material 2. higher temperature will cause oil to crak

### 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.
