Abstract:

The objective of this report is to determine the relationship between the thickness of petroleum product measured in wells and the thickness within the soil foundation. A theory is presented for an equation that predicts soil formation petroleum thickness from well thickness with a fair degree of accuracy. The equation only functions over a narrow range of data because of boundary condition imposed by the physical models used.
