PGE 362 Production Engineering HWK 4 This homework is due at lecture time on Friday, Oct. 5, 2007. (1) Use the Beggs & Brill correlation in the two phase flow module of the PPS software to show the effect of increasing gas-oil ratio on flowing bottom hole pressure. Please plot on one graph the flowing pressure traverse for the following well using gas-oil ratios of 0, 500, 1000, 2000, 3000 Scf/Bbl. Diameter = 2.441” Length = 10,000’ Length increment = 200’ Surface temperature = 100 deg F Bottom hole temperature = 150 deg F Wellhead pressure = 125 psi Pipe roughness = 0.0006 Inclination angle = 90 degrees Oil flow rate = 1000 bbl/day Water-oil ratio = 0 Oil gravity = 35 deg API Gas gravity = 0.7 Pressure Traverse 0 1000 2000 3000 4000 5000 6000 7000 8000 9000 10000 0 1000 2000 3000 4000 Pressure (psi) Depth (ft) 0 Scf/Bbl 500 Scf/Bbl 1000 Scf/Bbl 2000 Scf/Bbl 3000 Scf/Bbl

Unformatted text preview: MScf/Bbl. This occurs because the average density of the mixture decreases with the addition of more gas. However, above 2000 MScf/Bbl the amount of gas added begins to increase the friction pressure, offsetting the benefit of density reduction. (2) Use the PPS single phase gas flow model to create a vertical lift performance plot for the follow well using flow rates of 10, 20, 40, and 60 MMScf/Day of gas for tubing internal diameters of 2”, 2.5”, and 3”. Bottom hole temperature = 200 deg F Surface temperature = 150 deg F Flowing surface pressure = 125 psi Length = 10,000’ Inclination angle = 90 degrees Pipe roughness = 0.0006 Gas gravity = 0.71 Vertical Lift Performance 5000 10000 15000 20000 10 20 30 40 50 60 Gas Flow Rate (MMScf/Day) Pwf (psi) 2" 2.5" 3"...

    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.
