Example A 1 Converting Metric to English Gas Field Units

Equation A 1 describes the gradual decline in flowing bottom-hole pressure (atmospheres) in a gas or water well as related to time in seconds, when the rate of production is q (reservoir cc/sec). This liquid flow equation is useful generally even when gas is present. The following conversion factors and arithmetic will convert Eq. A 1 to A 2 from metric to English gas field units (however, leaving the t D parameter in Darcy units).

• 1 foot = 30 .48 cm

• 1 day = 86 ,400 sec

• 1 B/D = 1 .84 cm 3/sec

• 1mD = 0 .001 D

• 1 psi = 1 /14 .65 atm

• in x = 2 .303 log x

Change q to (q ? o ), so that q = tank barrels
