Book Description :

The Complete, Up-to-Date, Practical Guide to Modern Petroleum Reservoir Engineering This is a complete, up-to-date guide to the practice of petroleum reservoir engineering, written by one of the world’s most experienced professionals. Dr. Nnaemeka Ezekwe covers topics ranging from basic to advanced, focuses on currently acceptable practices and modern techniques, and illuminates key concepts with realistic case histories drawn from decades of working on petroleum reservoirs worldwide. Dr. Ezekwe begins by discussing the sources and applications of basic rock and fluid properties data. Next, he shows how to predict PVT properties of reservoir fluids from correlations and equations of state, and presents core concepts and techniques of reservoir engineering. Using case histories, he illustrates practical diagnostic analysis of reservoir performance, covers essentials of transient well test analysis, and presents leading secondary and enhanced oil recovery methods. Readers will find practical coverage of experience-based procedures for geologic modeling, reservoir characterization, and reservoir simulation. Dr. Ezekwe concludes by presenting a set of simple, practical principles for more effective management of petroleum reservoirs. With Petroleum Reservoir Engineering Practice readers will learn to • Use the general material balance equation for basic reservoir analysis • Perform volumetric and graphical calculations of gas or oil reserves • Analyze pressure transients tests of normal wells, hydraulically fractured wells, and naturally fractured reservoirs • Apply waterflooding, gasflooding, and other secondary recovery methods • Screen reservoirs for EOR processes, and implement pilot and field-wide EOR projects. • Use practical procedures to build and characterize geologic models, and conduct reservoir simulation • Develop reservoir management strategies based on practical principles Throughout, Dr. Ezekwe combines thorough coverage of analytical calculations and reservoir modeling as powerful tools that can be applied together on most reservoir analyses. Each topic is presented concisely and is supported with copious examples and references. The result is an ideal handbook for practicing engineers, scientists, and managers—and a complete textbook for petroleum engineering students.

Book Description :

This revised edition of the bestselling Practice of Reservoir Engineering has been written for those in the oil industry requiring a working knowledge of how the complex subject of hydrocarbon reservoir engineering can be applied in the field in a practical manner. Containing additions and corrections to the first edition, the book is a simple statement of how to do the job and is particularly suitable for reservoir/production engineers as well as those associated with hydrocarbon recovery. This practical book approaches the basic limitations of reservoir engineering with the basic tenet of science: Occam's Razor, which applies to reservoir engineering to a greater extent than for most physical sciences - if there are two ways to account for a physical phenomenon, it is the simpler that is the more useful. Therefore, simplicity is the theme of this volume. Reservoir and production engineers, geoscientists, petrophysicists, and those involved in the management of oil and gas fields will want this edition.

Book Description :

Tight gas reservoirs have very low permeability and porosity, which cannot be produced at economical flow rates unless the well is efficiently stimulated and completed using advanced and optimized technologies. Economical production on the basis of tight gas reservoirs is challenging in general, not only due to their very low permeability but also to several different forms of formation damage that can occur during drilling, completion, stimulation, and production operations. This study demonstrates in detail the effects of different well and reservoir static and dynamic parameters that influence damage mechanisms and well productivity in tight gas reservoirs. Geomechanics, petrophysics, production and reservoir engineering expertise for reservoir characterization is combined with a reservoir simulation approach and core analysis experiments to understand the optimum strategy for tight gas development, delivering improved well productivity and gas recovery.

Book Description :

Reservoir characterization as a discipline grew out of the recognition that more oil and gas could be extracted from reservoirs if the geology of the reservoir was understood. Prior to that awakening, reservoir development and production were the realm of the petroleum engineer. In fact, geologists of that time would have felt slighted if asked by corporate management to move from an exciting exploration assignment to a more mundane assignment working with an engineer to improve a reservoir's performance. Slowly, reservoir characterization came into its own as a quantitative, multidisciplinary endeavor requiring a vast array of skills and knowledge sets. Perhaps the biggest attractor to becoming a reservoir geologist was the advent of fast computing, followed by visualization programs and theaters, all of which allow young geoscientists to practice their computing skills in a highly technical work environment. Also, the discipline grew in parallel with the evolution of data integration and the advent of asset teams in the petroleum industry. Finally, reservoir characterization flourished with the quantum improvements that have occurred in geophysical acquisition and processing techniques and that allow geophysicists to image internal reservoir complexities.

Reservoir Engineering of Conventional and Unconventional Petroleum Resources is a practical guide and handbook for engineers and geoscientists. It is also a complete textbook for teaching of reservoir engineering courses with exercises in each chapter. The sources and applications of basic rock properties are presented. Prediction of PVT properties from correlations and equations of state, and laboratory measurements of same properties from fluid samples are discussed. These basic data are applied in material balance analyses, volumetric calculation of hydrocarbons-in-place and reserves, and analyses of reservoir performance using case histories. Production forecasts for conventional and unconventional reservoirs using Arps' decline equations in decline curve analyses (DCA) are presented. The applications of modified Arps' decline equations coupled with transient flow models in rate transient analyses (RTA) are illustrated. Dr. Ezekwe presents fundamental equations and methods for pressure transient analysis (PTA) for fractured and unfractured wells in conventional reservoirs. This is accompanied with well test analyses in unconventional reservoirs using diagnostic fracture injection tests (DFIT). Secondary recovery methods focused on waterflooding, gasflooding, and low salinity waterflooding are demonstrated. Enhanced oil recovery methods are discussed. Dr. Ezekwe recommends experience-based practical procedures for geologic modeling, reservoir characterization, reservoir simulation, and reservoir management. Fundamental economic decision criteria including profitability index, net present value, rate of return are demonstrated with examples.
