Unformatted text preview: dran 40 acres having an average thickness of 23 feet. Core analysis has shown an average of 23% porosity and a connate water saturation of 19%. If the formation volume factor is 1.27, estimate the initial oil in place for this well in STB. 2. A new gas well has ben completed at 8,500 feet. It has 38 feet of net pay, a 18% porosity and a water saturation of 19%. The gas formation volume factor is 0.0042. It is expected to drain 160 acres. What is the original gas in place. . 3. Using the conversion tables (and the method described there), derive an equation similar to that used in problem where the reservoir area will be in hectares and the thickness will be in meters ,but the oil volume will stioll be in STB...
