Gas Reserve Estimation
•Certain reservoir factors tend to reduce theapplicability of material balance reinforce theimportance of volumetric method throughoutthe life of the field.
–Moderate to strong water drive –Low average permeability –Complex internal architecture and poor lateral or vertical continuity.Presence of any of these factors may make itdifficult to obtain a representative averagepressure in response to production.
