How reservoir property variations may effect Frio hydrocarbon volumes

The question often arises as to what effect, if any, do variations in common reservoir properties have on the amount of hydrocarbon reserves present.As the values of these properties increase or decrease, do such changes effect the amounts of reserves present?These reservoir properties include depth of production, porosity, permeability, oil-column thickness, API gravity, reservoir temperature, reservoir initial pressure, and water saturation. Unfortunately the number of proved acres for each reservoir often has not been published.It must be recognized that any conclusions reached may not apply directly to reservoirs in other areas but might provide ideas that can be applied elsewhere.Gu...
