Joint Progress Report on Reservoir Efficiency and Well Spacing

    Abstract

    THIS report embodies the findings of two committees appointed respectively by the Standard Oil Co. (New Jersey) Affiliated Companies and the Humble Oil and Refining Co. to collate and interpret data on the effects of field operating practices and well spacing on the efficiency of oil recovery from natural underground resources. Each of the committees carried out pool studies of actual fields to obtain information on reservoir behaviour and oil recovery under various well-spacing and operating practices, in addition to a review of all available theory and research data.
