Mnemonics, Properties, Min_Net_Thickness

NameMinimum Net Thickness
Parents Property > Length > Thickness
DescriptionIt is common in an interbedded reservoir for sands thinner than a certain cutoff thickness (Min_Net_Thickness) to be discarded as non net or non pay in a ResSum type analysis. However, a thick sand may have two closely spaced shale stringers, such that they create the effect of a thin sand separated from thick sands above and below by thin shale beds. In this case, if the shale beds are thinner than a second thickness threshold (Min_Non_Net_Thickness), the thin sand would be counted as net or pay.
