Reservoir

By definition, a reservoir in terms of oil & gas is a subsurface body of rock having sufficient porosity and permeability to store and transmit fluids. Due to the porosity (porous/accessible free space) of the rocks, this allows the reservoir to be an option of underground storage, especially for natural gas, e.g. UGS (Underground Gas Storage).
