RESERVOIR ENGINEERING III (PET 502)
- 60 (Registered)
This Course “RESERVOIR ENGINEERING III” is aimed at providing the learners the basic knowledge of Well Test, its Objectives, Types and Equipment. We would begin this course with a simple Pre-Introductory quiz, and then we will go into the course proper. We shall look into: An Introductory session and then The Objectives of well test: Reservoir evaluation, Reservoir management, Reservoir description. Later on, The types of well test: Drawdown Test, Buildup Test, Injection Test, Falloff Test, Interference Test, Drill Stem Test (DST) then we’ll look at Well Test Equipment: Formation Tester (FT), Repeat Formation Tester (RFT), Modular Formation Dynamics Tester (MDT), Drill Stem Test (DST) & Surface Test Equipment. On the next section, we will be discussing about Well Test Principles: Introduction, Darcy;s law, Compressibility, Diffusion equation and various ways to solve diffusivity equation. Conventional Interpretation Methods: Drawdown Test, Interpretation.
In summary, this coursewill consist of the following Modules and Lessons.
Well Test Interpretation
- Well Test Objectives
- Well Test Types
- Well Test Equipment
Well Test Principles
- Darcy’s law
- Diffusion Equation
