Application of pressure measurements to development geology

  title={Application of pressure measurements to development geology},
  author={Parke Atherton Dickey},
This work discusses the use of static values of pressure of fluids in reservoirs and aquifers. Measurement of fluid pressures in wells provides very useful information in both development and exploration. Both operations need to ascertain the limits of permeable reservoir rock. This can be done much better with pressure measurements than with ordinary wire-line logs. Pressure measurements should be taken in all prospective oil or gas sands, even when the resistivity logs indicate water. If… CONTINUE READING
