How can I find the water oil ratio (WOR)?

We understand that easily accessing the water oil ratio (WOR) is crucial for your business, and we have designed WellDatabase with several areas that provide this information in our analytics.

Whether you need to analyze the WOR for a specific operator, a particular area, a formation, or a combination of multiple factors, our platform has you covered.

To begin, let's utilize the search filters available in WellDatabase to narrow down the results on your map and display only the wells that are of interest to you. Once you have located the wells you are interested in, navigate to the analytics section. (Read more about analytics in the following article: What are WellDatabase analytics?

In the analytics section, you will find a wealth of information related to the water oil ratio. Our platform offers various visualizations, charts, and graphs that help you understand the WOR performance across different parameters. 

Tip: You can also use these approaches to analyze other important ratios such as the gas oil ratio (GOR), the gas liquid ratio (GLR), and the water gas ratio (WGR). 


Working across the analytics tabs from left to right, let's start with the Overview tab. This page is specifically designed to present a comprehensive overview of the selected wells, including the water oil ratio. 

Production Dashboard

Now, let's navigate to the production dashboard and scroll down to the Cumulative Oil Histogram chart. By default, this chart displays cumulative oil production, but you have the flexibility to choose from various data options. Simply use the drop-down menu at the bottom of the chart and begin typing "WOR" to see a list of options such as cumulative WOR, first or last month WOR, first or last 12 months WOR, and more. 

Custom Chart Tab

The Custom Chart Tab is a unique chart that allows you to unleash your creativity and create any chart you can imagine. With this tab, you have the freedom to customize and design charts that best suit your needs. These charts can easily be added to a custom dashboard for future use. In the example below, we have chosen to use a scatter box chart.

Here are the settings that were used for this chart: 


Using the chart dropdown allows you to change the name of the chart and add this chart to a custom dashboard. If you want more information on how to create a custom dashboard, click here

Monthly Production

Moving on to the monthly production tab in our analytics section, you will notice that the water oil ratio (WOR) is not initially displayed on the chart. However, you can easily add it by selecting the "other" on the right side of the chart and then checking WOR.

Single Well

Furthermore, you have the capability to utilize the same approach mentioned above for the monthly production charts in order to analyze a single well on the production tab of the well details card. This enables you to retrieve the same valuable information regarding the water oil ratio for each individual well.


By utilizing the power of WellDatabase's analytics, you can easily access and interpret the water oil ratio data that is crucial to your business. With our intuitive interface and customizable charts, you can make informed decisions and optimize your operations based on the insights gained from analyzing the WOR.


To access a list view of WOR, there are multiple options at your disposal. Begin by switching your list to "Show: Production Summary". Then, click on the ellipsis to reveal a dropdown menu with various column options to choose from. This will allow you to easily locate the desired list view of WOR. 


Once you have chosen the columns that you are interested in, they will be displayed in your list view for easy reference and analysis.

Export WOR Data 

You have the option to export the WOR data in addition to viewing it in a list format. To do this, simply select "Production Summary" in the data types section.

Next, you can search for the specific WOR value(s) you want to export by using the attributes on the data export wizard.
