I'm looking for the proper syntax to use in a WHERE clause.  I'm pulling data from a non-normalized table that is used for reporting purposes, and I only want to pull those records where the IgnoreXXX field for the particular product = 0.

The syntax below seems to be working properly, but I'm just looking for either confirmation that this would be the preferred syntax, or a better syntax if there is one.
SELECT P1.Prod_ID
, P1.Entity_ID
, P1.docDate 
, Vol = Case WHEN @Product = 'Gas' THEN P1.Gas
             WHEN @Product = 'Oil' THEN P1.Oil
             WHEN @Product = 'Water' THEN P1.Water
             Else NULL End
, Ignore = Case When @Product = 'Gas' THEN P1.IgnoreGas
             WHEN @Product = 'Oil' THEN P1.IgnoreOil
             WHEN @Product = 'Water' THEN P1.IgnoreWater
             ELSE NULL End
FROM tbl_sysProduction as P1
WHERE (CASE WHEN @Product = 'Gas' Then P1.IgnoreGas
            WHEN @Product = 'Oil' THEN P1.IgnoreOil
            WHEN @Product = 'Water' THEN P1.IgnoreWater
            ELSE 0 END) = 0

If that works for you then go for it, otherwise...

WHERE (@product = 'Gas' AND p1.IgnoreGas = 0) OR
   (@product='Oil' AND P1.IgnoreOir = 0) OR
   (@Product='Water AND P1.IgnoreWater = 0) OR
   (@Product NOT IN ('Gas', 'Oil', 'Water')
0
