Title: Geological Application of Bottom-Hole Pressures

Author(s): C. V. Millikan (2)


Bottom-hole pressure is the pressure measured at the face of a porous reservoir penetrated by a well. There is not as yet sufficient history of bottom-hole pressures in different fields during development and depletion to make possible a full interpretation of pressures which may be taken. Experience thus far shows that they may be a valuable aid in correlating porous formations, determining reservoir conditions, rate of development and proper well spacing, and estimating reserves and the most economic rate at which the oil may be recovered. With more experience in the interpretation and correlation of bottom-hole pressures, their value will increase greatly.
