Description

Reservoir and production engineers are required to understand and adapt to a larger number of production challenges and more complex well structures in today’s markets. Well Productivity Handbook, Second Edition, delivers updated examples and solutions for oil and gas well management projects. Improved to address the productivity models of both simple and complex completions, this reference provides engineers the full scope of productivity of with all types of completions including wells that require artificial lift. Starting simple with estimating fluid properties and estimation of reservoir properties, the content discusses modelling of inflow performance of wells producing different types of fluids and describes the principle of well productivity analysis to show how to predict productivity of wells with simple trajectories. Advancing into more complex trajectories, the new edition demonstrates predicting productivity for more challenging wells such as mult-lateral, multi-fractured, and radial-fractured. Rounding out with sample problems to solve and future references to pursue, Well Productivity Handbook, Second Edition, continues to give reservoir and production engineers the tool 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
    • Delivers practical elements such as, practice examples to calculate, future references, and summaries at the end of every chapter
    • Updated with complex well trajectories, new case studies, and essential derivations
