Abstract

"The study of the migration and accumulation of petroleum has very naturally been analytic, with the result that we have had a variety of studies of its several features. the generation of petroleum, its migration and its accumulation in reservoir rocks is not a rapid process which may be accomplished and terminated in a comparatively short time, but one of long and almost continuous operation from the time of its inception. In this study the author is not attempting to formulate a new theory for the movement of oil from its point of origin to its final point of accumulation into pools of commercial size. Rather he is attempting to segregate and then string together some of the essential elements involved in the mechanics of oil movements. The material presented in this paper has not been gotten from laboratory for field observation, but from a critical study of the literature on the subject discussed"--Introduction, page 3.
