G. D. Hobson*

* 7, St. John s Avenue, Ewell, Surrey KT17 3BE.


AUFMAN (1963) plotted Previous HitfieldNext Hit size against cumulative percentage of fields on log-probability paper for oilfields in North Louisiana, and obtained a close approximation to a straight line--suggesting a log-normal distribution. Comparable plots for fields in a number of formations in Western Canada yielded less perfect Previous HitexamplesNext Hit of log-normal distributions (Kaufman et al., 1975) .Other workers have proposed log-normal distributions for Previous HitfieldNext Hit sizes. Magara (1986) gives Previous HitdataTop on the sizes of "giant" oil- and gasfields World-wide.
