say you purchased a piece of land 150 meters by 10,000 meters. The thickness of the reservoir rock that you hope contains petroleum is 9 meters. Calculate the total volume of your possible oil field in cubic meters.

    150 * 10000 * 9 = 103,500,000 cubic meters

    Not all of this thickness will be petroleum. Petroleum is only found in the pore spaces of rock, and some of those pore spaces may contain both water and oil. Assuming a 20% pore space, how much volume of petroleum can you now optimistically expect?
