Overpressured reservoirs frequently produce light oils and gases, requiring special evaluation techniques. The authors describe the major characteristics of this type of reservoir in a way that is accessible to both geologists and engineers. The book’s six chapters deal with such topics as occurrence and origins of overpressures, reservoir-fluid properties, reservoir mechanics, and estimating original gas in place and predicting performance.
