A Study of the Capillary Pressure-Hydrodynamic Relationship to Soil Accumulation in Stratigraphic Traps

CIM Bulletin, 1960

The object of the work described in this paper was to increase the understanding of the relation that capillary pressure of a rock, hydrodynamics, and accumulation of oil in stratigraphic traps have to one another. The hydrodynamic oil-water tilt equation is derived by considering the two vector gradients involved: (1) buoyancy of oil in water and (2) hydraulic gradient.
