Petroleum Engineering PtrE 421 Production Engineering Lecture 2 Undersaturated Oil Reservoir Inflow Performance
Petroleum Engineering Read chapter 2 in Textbook, Petroleum Production System , by Economides, M.J., A.D. Hill, and C.E. Ehlig-Economides Reading and Homework
Petroleum Engineering Outline Darcy’s Law Transient Flow Steady-State Flow Pseudo-Steady-State Flow Productivity Index IPR Curve Horizontal Well Production Effects of Water Production
Petroleum Engineering Darcy’s Law dL d k v gh p v = cm/s = Atm L = cm = cp k = Darcy
Petroleum Engineering Reservoir Flow Types Transient Flow -pressure disturbance at wellbore has not yet reached reservoir boundary Steady-State Flow - pressure disturbance has reached all Boundaries, reservoir pressures are not changing -pressure support, i.e. one or more constant pressure boundaries Pseudo-Steady-State -pressure disturbance has reached all boundaries - closed reservoir, constant flow rate production - bottomhole pressure decreases with depletion

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
