PGE 331 Final Exam Key Unique 19320 Open book, notes. Show all work and read each problem carefully. 1. Associating a Time Scale. The figures below show the rate and pressure history of the primary depletion of a small reservoir to its economic limit. The total compressibility is 3 GPa -1 . The produced fluid is a slightly compressible undersaturated single-phase oil. 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 Time, days 22.5 23 23.5 24 24.5 25 25.5 0 50 100 150 200 250 300 350 Time, days Average Well a. (5 points) Give values for the plateau rate, the length of time of the constant rate period, the length of time required to attain stabilized flow, the limiting pressure, and the value for the economic limit. These are read directly from the graph.

3 /day Constant rate length = 105 days Time to attain stabilized flow = about 10 days (time for pressure decline to be straight) Limiting pressure = 23 MPa Economic limiting rate = 1.5 m 3 /day Grading: 1 point each b. (10 points) Estimate the productivity index and the time constant. The productivity index is based on the drawdown during stabilized flow in the constant rate period.
