PGE 331 Exam 1 Key Open book, notes. Show all work and read each problem carefully. One hour time limit. 1. Darcy's Law Calculations. This problem deals with the one-dimensional flow of a fluid in a linear reservoir. There are two wells on opposite ends of the reservoir that are a distance L apart. The reservoir has thickness h and cross-sectional width W. It is horizontal at a sub-surface depth of 8000 ft. a. (5 points) Sketch (no calculation required) this reservoir and the flow within it. This is a very simple sketch as per below. W h L Injector Producer Flow b. (5 points) One of the wells is an injector whose bottom hole pressure is constant at 10% below a typical fracturing pressure. Estimate the bottom hole pressure of the injector. The bottom hole pressure is given by π ινϕ = 0.9Φ φραχ ∆ + Π συρφ which yields, putting in the values given in the lecture notes, π ινϕ = 0.9 ( 29 0.765 πσι φτ ÷ 8000 φτ ( 29 + 14.7 πσια π ινϕ = 5523 πσια One could also use the equation on p. 13, but there is some question about what the “pore” pressure is Alternatives include the hydrostatic pressure, the mean between the hydrostatic and injection pressure, or the injection pressure. For the latter, the equation becomes π φ = 3 1+ 2 0.9 ( 29 π φ ÷ ÷ which on solution gives π φ = 0.833∆

    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.
