Basics of Reservoir Engineering: Oil and Gas Field by Ren Cosse

By Ren Cosse

The quantity presents transparent and concise details on reservoir engineering equipment, starting from particular geological and geophysical innovations utilized to reservoirs, to the fundamentals of reservoir simulation, near to good logging, fluid PVT reports and good trying out. Emphasis is put on contemporary tools resembling using kind curves in good attempt interpretation, and on horizontal drain holes. the data might help all experts within the appropriate disciplines reminiscent of geologists, geophysicists, creation engineers and drillers. it is going to even be beneficial to a broader variety of experts reminiscent of laptop scientists, criminal specialists, economists and examine staff, in putting their paintings inside of a much wider expert context and incorporating it right into a multidisciplinary box of task.

It is the absolute or specific of the sample in the direction considered. Permeability is expresarea. In the SI International System, k is expressed in square meters, and this is an enormous unit! 987 x m2 In practice: 1 rnD = m2 1 darcy = 1 (pm)2 The range of permeabilities found is very wide. 1 mD to more than 10 D. The following terms can be employed to specify the value of the permeability: R. COSSE 39 2. : in a porous medium, the permeability generally varies with the flow direction. 2 Laws of Horizontal Flow in Steady-State Conditions The elementary pressure drop law in a porous medium is not Darcy's Law, but a more general law of the form: P Qm d p =-[l AkP + - x) uQm dx where Q, = mass flow rate, = fluid density in the pressure and temperature conditions of the section p dx considered, u = shape parameter characterizing the shape of the pores (about 10'' to 1 0 - ~m).

Matters proceed as if the well drained a portion of a cylinder of height h, bounded by the radii rw and R. h r2 where Q is the volume flow rate measured at pressure P and at the flow temperature. 3 Associations of Formations of Different Permea bil i ties Average Permeability k m Association in Parallel, Layers without Vertical Communication (Fig. 6) hi hz 42 *+ ki k2 km = h l k l + hzk2 h l + h2 R.

One of the basic problems concerns the accurate identification of the different markers. Emphasis is also placed on the means employed to identify them with respect to the top and base of the reservoir(s). Vertical seismic profiles, offset vertical seismic profiles, sonic logs and synthetic seismic films are some of the tools that serve to obtain and to refine the depthhime calibration of the seismic sections. Conventional 2-D (two-dimensional) shooting presents the drawback of bringing ‘all the events directly underneath the profile, distorting the time image of the subsoil.
