reservoir

reservoir

reservoir

the underground formation where oil and gas has accumulated consisting of a porous and permeable rock to hold the oil or gas, and a cap rock that prevents its escape;

reservoir

a porous and permeable underground formation containing an individual and separate natural accumulation of producible hydrocarbons (oil and/ or gas) which is confined by impermeable rock or water barriers and is characterized by a single natural pressure system. A subsurface, porous, permeable rock body in which oil and/or gas is stored, Most reservoir rocks are limestones, dolomites, sandstones, or a combination of these. The three basic types of hydrocarbon reservoirs are oil, gas, and condensate. An oil reservoir generally contains three fluids - gas, oil, and water - with oil the dominant product. In the typical oil reservoir, these fluids occur in different phases because of the variance in their gravities. Gas, the lightest, occupies the upper part of the reservoir rocks; water, the lower part; and oil, the intermediate section. In addition to its occurrence as a cap or in solution, gas may accumulate independently of the oil; if so, the reservoir is called a gas reservoir. Associated with the gas, in most instances, are salt water and some oil. In a condensate reservoir, the hydrocarbons may exist as a gas, but, when brought to the surface, some of the heavier ones condense to a liquid. ...

Reservoir

A porous or fractured rock formation with a geological seal thus forming a trap for producible hydrocarbons. A common exploration maxim is that a prospective reservoir must possess a related Source rock, Structure and Seal.

Reservoir

Living or (rarely) non-living source of infection not always showing symptoms, in which a pest may pass a period free of economic hosts, and serving as a source of inoculum. For instance domestic cats are reservoirs of Toxoplasma gondii.
