Download e-book for iPad: Fundamentals of Gas Reservoir Engineering by Jacques Hagoort (Eds.)
By Jacques Hagoort (Eds.)
Fuel reservoir engineering is the department of reservoir engineering that bargains completely with reservoirs of non-associated gasoline. The major objective of reservoir engineering is the formula of improvement and construction plans that may bring about greatest restoration for a given set of monetary, environmental and technical constraints. this isn't a one-time task yet wishes continuous updating through the construction lifetime of a reservoir.The goal of this publication is to collect the basics of fuel reservoir engineering in a coherent and systematic demeanour. it's meant either for college kids who're new to the topic and practitioners, who may possibly use this ebook as a reference and refresher. every one bankruptcy will be learn independently of the others and comprises a number of, thoroughly labored workouts. those routines are a vital part of the publication; they not just illustrate the idea but in addition express how one can practice the idea to functional problems.Chapters 2, three and four are involved in the elemental actual houses of reservoirs and usual gasoline fluids, insofar as of relevance to gasoline reservoir engineering. bankruptcy five bargains with the volumetric estimation of hydrocarbon fluids in-place and the recoverable hydrocarbon reserves of gasoline reservoirs. bankruptcy 6 offers the fabric stability approach, a vintage approach for the research of reservoir functionality in keeping with the legislations of Conservation of Mass. Chapters 7-10 talk about quite a few facets of the circulate of traditional fuel within the reservoir and the wellbore: unmarried part circulation in porous and permeable media; gaswell checking out tools according to single-phase stream rules; the mechanics of gasoline circulate within the wellbore; the matter of water coning, the creation of water in addition to the fuel in fuel reservoirs with underlaying backside water. bankruptcy eleven discusses common depletion, the typical improvement choice for dry and rainy gasoline reservoirs. the improvement of gas-condensate reservoirs by way of fuel injection is taken care of in bankruptcy 12.Appendix A lists the generally used devices in gasoline reservoir engineering, in addition to their conversion elements. Appendix B contains a few detailed actual and mathematical constants which are of specific curiosity in fuel reservoir engineering. eventually, Appendix C comprises the actual houses of a few universal natural-gas elements.
