Quantitative technique for prediction of local oil and gas

  • I. S. Djafarov


Allowing for regional trends, the character of saturation and lithological features can be used in this technique as an efficient tool for predicting local oil and gas potential. The algorithm of the procedure has been programmed infortran for the EC computer.
