We welcome Aguilera's (2006) constructive discussion of Ehrenberg and Nadeau's (2005) global compilation of reservoir data. It demonstrates additional applications of these valuable data in the area of reservoir engineering and improved oil recovery, which is an ever-increasing focus area for our industry. This is a particularly challenging task in carbonate reservoirs, which are commonly characterized by extreme complexity and heterogeneity. Yet it is precisely from these reservoirs where the rewards in terms of improved recovery potential can be the greatest.

...

In our own experience, we have found the global distribution for carbonate reservoir properties useful in describing porosity and...
