RESERVOIR ENGINEERING

LTPC

3003

OBJECTIVES:
• To enable the students to
• Understand the rock and fluid properties of a hydrocarbon reservoir
• Describe the nature of the fluid flow and pressure distribution in a reservoir
• Understand the effects of production/ injection on recovery of reserves

UNIT I

9

 Understand the effects of production/ injection on recovery of reserves

UNIT II

9

Fluid flow in reservoirs, Fluid movement in water flooded Reservoirs – Recovery efficiency – Areal or pattern. Sweep efficiency, - Vertical or invasion sweep efficiency, - Permeability variation – Cross flow – Estimates of volumetric sweep efficiency – Estimation of water flood recovery by material balance – prediction methods – Monitoring injectivity. Darcy Law and application.

UNIT III

9

Multi-phase flow: Relative permeability-fractional flow. Well performance – inflow performance, tubing performance.

UNIT IV

9

Recommended methods for assessing residual oil – Existing wells, new wells, Chemical Flooding, Gas injection, Thermal recovery – Well Testing

UNIT V

9

Well performance – Reservoir management and simulation – reservoir data acquisition – Reservoir simulation. Mathematical basis of bottom hole analysis; Differential equations for radial flow in a porous medium. Pressure draw down and build up analysis.

TOTAL: 45 PERIODS

OUTCOMES:: Upon completion of the course, students will be able to
On completion of the course students are expected to CO1: Gain the knowledge about the reservoir fluids and their properties. CO2: Obtain the knowledge of rocks present over the reservoir. CO3: Gain the knowledge about the multiphase flow and well performance CO4: Understand the concepts of the oil/gas recovery techniques. CO5: Understand the mathematical relationships that are designed to describe the flow behaviour of the reservoir fluids.
