Productivity and injectivity of horizontal wells. Quarterly report, April 1--June 30, 1996

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A number of activities have been carried out during this quarter of research. A list outlining these efforts is presented including: (1) The design and planning of the next phase of the two-phase flow experiments have moved forward. The necessary modifications to allow the use of wire-wrapped screens have been made. The flow loop and the data acquisition system are currently being tested and the new experiments are about to commence. (2) Work on obtaining exact well models for a horizontal well or a well of any general profile has continued. (3) Work on the application of horizontal wells in ... continued below

Description

A number of activities have been carried out during this quarter of research. A list outlining these efforts is presented including: (1) The design and planning of the next phase of the two-phase flow experiments have moved forward. The necessary modifications to allow the use of wire-wrapped screens have been made. The flow loop and the data acquisition system are currently being tested and the new experiments are about to commence. (2) Work on obtaining exact well models for a horizontal well or a well of any general profile has continued. (3) Work on the application of horizontal wells in gas condensate reservoirs has progressed. The available methods and models are being critically evaluated with the aid of simulation runs. (4) Research work on developing coarse grid methods to study cresting in horizontal wells has continued. Correlations for optimum grid size, breakthrough time, and post breakthrough behavior (i.e. water-oil ratio) are being developed and tested for the problem of water cresting. (5) The Ph.D. project on three-dimensional flexible grid simulator (FLEX) was successfully defended in June. The FLEX simulator will be used in future studies as well as in future developments. The dissertation report will be submitted soon to the US DOE. This quarterly report is based on the last activity listed above. It shows the advantage of the new flexible grid simulator.
