Standard Handbook of Integrated Reservoir Management

Calculations and Simulations

Edited By

  • Tarek Ahmed

Experienced managers and engineers in the oil industry all too often see more junior staff, lost in the details of their latest big computational models, failing to analyse properly the key decisions that need to be made – "What recovery mechanism shall we use? How many wells do we drill? What facilities capacity do we need? How do we operate the artificial lift system? What do we do if reservoir permeability is better than we expect? Written by an expert with over 30 years of experience, Standard Handbook of Reservoir Engineering: Calculations and Simulations uses mathematics and simplified system models in conjunction with the industry-standard computational models. Supported by an online computer program, this book online arrangement allows readers construct, validate, and run simulations. The author covers engineering practices in a multidisciplinary approach. The book includes all relevant calculations ranging from exploration and appraisal to enhanced oil recovery. Reservoir engineering equations are introduced with emphasis directed to parameter significance and its employment in reservoir engineering calculations. This is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the reservoir dynamics, which results in advanced skills to utilize all available reservoir data and their application for the sake of better managing the reservoir to maximize recovery and profit. Pertinent industrial reservoir computer models will be explained as needed.
