We propose a new method to estimate the Dykstra-Parsons coefficient that leads to a more statistically reliable indication of the true heterogeneity level. The new method extracts more information from the data to produce an estimate that gives half the error of the traditional approach. Several cases are considered to demonstrate the effects of more reliable Dykstra-Parsons coefficients on predicted reservoir performance.
