Advanced Pressure Transient Analysis

This presentation examines in detail the mathematical basis for well test interpretation, starting with the concept of an ideal reservoir model and the partial differential equations used to describe single-phase and multi-phase flow in porous media. It discusses the use of dimensionless variables and type curves in pressure transient analysis, and describes interpretation methods for anisotropic, hetereogenous and multi-phase reservoirs. It also provides an overview of computer applications in pressure transient analysis, discusses specialized well testing procedures and their applications, and describes mathematical tools used in pressure transient analysis, including Transformations, applications of the Superposition Principle, Convolution/Deconvolution Methods, and Pressure Derivative Analysis.

Future Challenges of Reservoir Discipline

Reservoir engineers will face in future the challenge of performing their professions for a global society with a significantly increased demand for hydrocarbons. This will require the reservoir engineers to embrace new technologies and engineering methods. In this webinar, experts will explain the technical current challenges and recent progress in four key areas in reservoir engineering discipline.

Sixteen Part Educational Video Series by Aziz S. Odeh

This sixteen part educational video series covers many of the fundamentals of reservoir engineering. The training is conducted by industry legend, Aziz S. Odeh, and is based on tapes of training courses he conducted for Mobil employees in the 1980s. Access to these classic training courses is made available by courtesy of ExxonMobil, to benefit all SPE members interested in these topics. While technology has advanced since these sessions were taped, the fundamentals remain applicable, and they provide perspective on the historical basis for topics like reservoir simulation, which has naturally evolved with computing technology.

Shale Formation Re-Fracturing; Why do it, What is Needed and How? Featured Image

Shale Formation Re-Fracturing; Why do it, What is Needed and How?

Multi-fractured horizontal wells in Shale plays exhibit, sometimes dramatic, performance decline due to deterioration in completion efficiency. In order to overcome the reduced effective fracture dimensions, it is necessary to evaluate the performance of the multi-fractured horizontal wells and its remaining potential and the impact of re-fracturing. In this webinar we discuss an analog model, developed from a statistically significant dataset of over 80 wells in the Haynesville Shale, for estimating the economic value, the potential uplift and the minimum threshold volume required. We also discuss methods to achieve this potential including implementation. Some of these points were presented by Jacobs7 in a JPT article.
