Enter the cumulative oil and the original oil in place into the Recovery Factor Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Recovery Factor.

## Recovery Factor Formula

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Recovery Factor.

**RF = CO / OO **

Variables:

- RF is the Recovery Factor ( )
- CO is the cumulative oil
- OO is the original oil in place

## How to Calculate Recovery Factor?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Recovery Factor.

- First, determine the cumulative oil.
- Next, determine the original oil in place.
- Next, gather the formula from above = RF = CO / OO .
- Finally, calculate the Recovery Factor.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem : **

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

cumulative oil = 300

original oil in place = 450

RF = CO / OO ** **= ?
