Application to field measurements is thoroughly documented. In an industry where there is often a lack of information, this timely volume gives a comprehensive account of the physics of reservoir engineering, a thorough knowledge of which is essential in the petroleum industry for the efficient recovery of hydrocarbons. Later chapters include unconventional gas reservoirs and the classical adaptations of the material balance equation. This book is very well written and would be a very useful on the shelf of Reservoir engineers who want to have quick look at the methods to do well tests on the available well pressure data. This book covers such subjects as layered reservoirs, naturally fractured reservoirs, wellbore effects, well testing for horizontal wells, and more. Most references include a short annotation. Engineers have an effect, whether direct or not, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes.
It also covers operational and testing related problems such as, hydrates, wax and sand, and offers the reader some possible solutions. The book takes an engineering sub-discipline approach, detailing those resources that are most important for the practicing engineer and the librarians who work in engineering. It is on the expensive side too. . I'd not recommend this for a novice. With this handbook, professionals will find a valuable reference for understanding the key relationships among the different operating variables. Examples contained in this reference demonstrate the performance of processes under forceful conditions through a wide variety of applications.
I found the explanations for the tests to be short, but then they are precise! Safety procedures and well testing recommended practices are rigorously addressed in this book, as are the responsibilities of those persons involved in well testing operations. However, studies have shown that quality information-finding skills often tend to be lacking in the engineering profession. Abstract: Contains the basics of well testing methods as well as of the developments in the field. Covering critical topics, such as petroleum fluid properties, reservoir deliverability, wellbore flow performance and productivity of intelligent well systems, this handbook explains real-world applications illustrated with example problems. This is a guide to resources that are often unknown to the practicing engineer. Perforating equipment, drill stem test equipment and bottom hole pressure gauges are discussed in detail in the book. Key Features Application of Fluid Flow Equations to Gas Systems Well Testing Techniques in Horizontal Gas Wells Deliverability Testing and Well Production Potential Analysis Methods Fundamentals of Draw Down Test Analysis Methods Fundamentals of Pressure Building Analysis Methods Predicting Future Deliverability Using Empirical Relationships Application of Type Curve Matching Techniques Pressure Derivative Methods of Analysis Massive Hydraulic Fractured Well Behavior Analysis Fractured Well Behavior Analysis Using Bilinear Flow Theory Practical Application of Interference and Pulse Tests Well Testing Terminology in Multilayered Resevoir Systems Pressure Behavior Analysis in Heterogeneous Resevoir Systems Gas Well Testing - Field Case Studies.
Oil Well Testing Handbook is a valuable addition to any reservoir engineer's library, containing the basics of well testing methods as well as all of the latest developments in the field. As for myself, i'd use this book as an when required as its difficult to remember all the tests and how they should be used i'd not use the calculations myself - but its good to have. The most recent complex interpretation models, combining different types of well and reservoir configurations, are discussed. The interpretation models are reviewed for well, reservoir and boundary conditions. A major part of the book is the detailed coverage of the equipment and instrumentation that makes up a surface well testing package. More accurate and useful information is extracted from well tests. Therefore, it is of great importance that such operations are extremely well planned and executed.
You should have knowledge of reservoir engineering subject and maths differential equations if you want to purchase this book and use it. Covers real-life examples and cases The most up-to-date information on oil well testing available The perfect reference for the engineer or textbook for the petroleum engineering student. The arrangement of materials provides easy and logical access to evaluated resources in engineering and supporting disciplines, providing a tool that is useful in reference services and collection development. The authors of each chapter are well-known, experienced librarians or faculty in the appropriate engineering discipline, sharing their expertise and experiences with engineering information. Topics covered in the handbook include: Processes to enhance production Well modification to maximize oil and gas recovery Completion and evaluation of wells, well testing, and well surveys Reservoir Engineering Handbook, Fourth Edition provides solid information and insight for engineers and students alike on maximizing production from a field in order to obtain the best possible economic return. There are useful chapters on sampling, onsite chemistry, coil tubing and nitrogen operations and basic stimulation as they relate to well testing.
Using the Engineering Literature is a guide to the wide range of resources in all fields of engineering. Other testing methods, such as multiple well and single well vertical interference tests, or drill stem tests are explained. While print is still important, resources are increasingly being made available in electronic formats, and the Web is now a major resource. Each chapter provides a short history and description of the discipline, then lists the most important resources by format: handbooks, dictionaries, texts, journals, websites, etc. The main emphasis is on practical field application, where over 100 field examples are resented to illustrate basic methods for analysis. A highly practical volume, this book is written for drilling engineers, well logging engineers, reservoir engineers, engineering students, geologists, and geophysicists. It features real-life examples and cases, and is suitable for engineers and for petroleum engineering students.
The analysis techniques are presented for oil wells, but also in the case of gas or multiphase reservoirs. Simple solutions to the diffusivity equation are discussed and their physical meanings examined. There is also a very valuable section on sub sea equipment, an area often not well understood even by experienced engineers who may have been primarily involved with land or jackup rigs. Gas Well Testing Handbook deals exclusively with theory and practice of gas well testing, pressure transient analysis techniques, and analytical methods required to interpret well behavior in a given reservoir and evaluate reservoir quality, simulation efforts, and forecast producing capacity. Chapter two documents water influx models and their practical applications in conducting comprehensive field studies, widely used throughout the industry. It also serves as a textbook for the library school student or new engineering librarian, as well as a time-saving handbook for current librarians.
You can use them to understand the subject pretty easily if you have a basic understanding. The E-mail message field is required. Finally there is an extensive section of appendices covering useful engineering calculations and there is a complete example of a detailed well testing programme. The models hypothesis and the influence of the different parameters are presented in detail. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. Chapter one deals exclusively with the theory and practice of transient flow analysis and offers a brief but thorough hands-on guide to gas and oil well testing. With today's powerful graphic and computing facilities, the characteristic features of the many different types of wells and reservoirs are magnified, and a large catalogue of theoretical solutions is required for the analysis of transient test responses.
Covers real-life examples and cases The most up-to-date information on oil well testing available The perfect reference for the engineer or textbook for the petroleum engineering student Author : Amanat U. Each chapter focuses in how to use the information gained in well testing to make engineering and economic decisions, and an overview of the current research models and their equations are discussed in relation to gas wells, homogenous, heterogeneous, naturally and hydraulically fractured reservoirs. . . . . .
