In areas with strong hydrodynamic gradients and large water force vectors, the oil/water interface may be tilted, possibly to the degree that a given structure cannot trap oil. In such areas, knowledge of the water force vector and the calculation of the tilt amplification factor (TAF) can aid in determining whether or not a structure is flushed. This study will demonstrate how force vector models can be used at regional and at individual pool scales and how changes in node spacing, oil densities, structure and head lines influence force vectors. Vector analysis on prospects and pool development is only valid where detailed structure maps (map scales of 1:5,000 or 1:10,000) allow for accurate determination of trap configuration. This study will also provide a hydrodynamic interpretation of the Nisku Fm in the Verger and Hays Enchant area to aid in further exploration.
