PGE323k Reservoir Engineering: Primary Hydrocarbon Recovery Exam 1 Key Open book, notes . Read each problem carefully and show all work. Turn in the exam sheet. 1. PVT . (10 points) Water-saturated air will form water droplets or dew when cooled. Sketch (no calculation required) this cooling on a P-T diagram. Be sure to show the initial I and final F (or cooled) state on your diagram. Grading: 3 Correct P-T diagram 4 Initial states on saturation line 4 Final state in two-phase region 2. Statics . Some reservoirs in Oman are lithostatically loaded initially. That is, the fluid pressure is given by the weight of the rock column rather than the weight of a water column. Take the density of rock to be 2.65 g/cm 3 in this exercise. a. (15 points) Sketch (no calculation required) the static pressure profile (pressure vs. depth from the water surface) in an offshore reservoir that is lithostatically loaded. See diagram below.

    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.
