# Communication factor in a compartment in tight gas reservoirs

## Input(s)

K: Permeability \((\mathrm{mD})\)

A: Area \(\left(\mathrm{ft}^{2}\right)\)

\(\mathrm{T}\): Temperature \((\mathrm{R})\)

L: Length of Compartment (ft)

## Output(s)

C: Communication Factor \(\left(\mathrm{SCF} / \mathrm{d} / \mathrm{psi}^{2} / \mathrm{cP}\right)\)

## Formula(s)

\[
C=\frac{0.111924 * k * A}{T * L}
\]
