Homework 2 Fundamentals of Reservoir Engineering 20 points The purpose of this homework is to give you practice with the three basic concepts of porosity, permeability, and compressibility. Above all it is to give practice in working with units and units conversion. 1. Units Conversion and Handy Factors. a. Show that the density head for water ρ w g is 9.8 kPa m when written in SI units. b Show that the density head for water ρ w

Unformatted text preview: g is 0.433 psi/ft when written in petroleum engineering units. The density for pure water is 1 g/cm 3 . 2. Porosity . Work exercises 3-1 through 3-3 at the end of Chapter 3 of Walsh and Lake. What do you conclude about the effect of grain size on porosity. 3. Permeability . Work exercise 3-8. The basic idea here is to perform the units conversion correctly. 4. Compressibility . Work exercises 3-9 and 3-13....
