continuous reservoir

1. n. [Shale Gas]

A type of areally extensive reservoir that contains hydrocarbon throughout, rather than containing a water contact or being significantly affected by a water column or a defined structural closure. The areal extent of a continuous reservoir, such as a shale reservoir, can be as large as the extent of the sedimentary basin in which the shale was deposited.
