"Results and procedures are presented covering the design and construction of a dimensionally scaled model of an oil reservoir and its use in investigating the problem of water coning. The theoretical considerations involved in the analytical solution of the water coning problem and the methods used in constructing, designing, and operating the above model are presented.
Four water coning experiments have been completed using the model. Three of the four runs have produced significant results. The information obtained from these experimental results have shown that the laboratory model is well suited for investigating oil reservoir problems such as water coning and that the analytical solution of the water coning problem should give excellent first approximations to actual field cases"--Abstract p. ii
