Abstract

"The problem of dividing a reservoir into distinct permeability zones, in order to predict fluid flow and thereby the production history of the field, has long troubled the petroleum engineer. As a solution to this problem a new statistical method for zoning a reservoir was developed, using a modification of the analysis of variance technique. The application of the statistical zonation procedure to permeability data obtained from eight closely spaced wells substantiated the validity and effectiveness of the new method in determining distinct permeability zones"--Abstract, page iii.
