{{#category_index:H|HC effect on overpressure}} The change in fluid pressure with depth depends on the density of the fluid. Where an appreciable gaseous or liquid hydrocarbon column exists, the pore fluid develops a pressure difference from what is expected for normal brine fluid. Measurements of the fluid pressure can be used to determine the bases of accumulations even where contacts are not themselves observed.
