Definition of Gas-oil ratio

Gas-oil ratio Definition from Business & Finance Dictionaries & Glossaries
Glossary of petroleum Industry
The number of cubic feet of natural gas produced with a barrel of oil. The ratio is expressed 5001 or 10001, whatever the volume of gas measured at the well that is produced per barrel of oil. A high gas-to-oil ratio is extremely undesirable because the pressure in a reservoir, the propulsive force to move the oil in the formation to the boreholes, is being depleted. And with the reservoir pressure gone, a great percentage of the oil may not be recoverable, except by a costly secondary recovery program. gas-oil ratio (GOR) is a measure of the volume of gas produced with oil, expressed in cubic feet per barrel or cubic meters per metric ton.
