Description

Well Productivity Handbook: Vertical, Fractured, Horizontal, Multilateral, Multi-fractured, and Radial-Fractured Wells, Second Edition delivers updated examples and solutions for oil and gas well management projects. Starting with the estimation of fluid and reservoir properties, the content then discusses the modeling of inflow performance in wells producing different types of fluids. In addition, it describes the principle of well productivity analysis to show how to predict productivity of wells with simple trajectories. Then advancing into more complex trajectories, this new edition demonstrates how to predict productivity for more challenging wells, such as multi-lateral, multi-fractured and radial-fractured. Rounding out with sample problems to solve and future references to pursue, this book continues to give reservoir and production engineers the tools needed to tackle the full spectrum of completion types.

Key Features

  • Covers the full range of completion projects, from simple to unconventional, including multi-layer and multi-fractured well deliverability
  • Includes practice examples to calculate, future references, and summaries at the end of every chapter
  • Updated throughout, with complex well trajectories, new case studies and essential derivations

Readership

Reservoir engineers; production engineers; graduate-level petroleum engineering students
