As a common used method to estimate oil reserves, volumetric method hypothesizes that each calculated target is a homogeneous body and calculates the oil reserves based on several mean reserves parameters of the computing target. However, as is known, the reservoir heterogeneities exist widely in the earth. A new kind of volumetric method with high precision for oil reserves calculation has been proposed in this paper. This method divides the computing target into lots of small units and makes the small units have their own reserves parameters. QHD32-6 oil field has been taken as an example to show the workflow of this method, and the computing result has proved the accuracy of the method.
