GOR (Gas-Oil Ratio)

The gas-oil ratio is a measure of the volume of gas produced along with oil from the same well.

How it’s important to us

Gas-oil ratio is a measurement typically displayed along with other basic well metadata.  It is a determining factor in whether the well is classified as a gas or oil well (as its primary hydrocarbon product).   It is common that both gas and oil will be produced from the same well.  In the state of Texas, the statutory definition of a gas well is one whose GOR exceeds 100,000 ft3/bbl or 100 Mcf / bbl.
