AN ASSESSMENT OF GRAVEL PACKING METHODS USED IN THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY.

CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION Many reservoirs are comprised of relatively young sediments, which are so poorly consolidated that sand will be produced along with the reservoir fluids unless the production rate is reduced significantly. Sand production leads to many numerous production problems including erosion of down hole tubular, valves, fitting and surface flow lines, collapsed casing because of la... Continue Reading »

IMPROVED MODEL FOR PREDICTION AND REMEDIATION OF FORMATION DAMAGE IN OIL WELLS

CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION FORMATION DAMAGE Formation damage can be defined as the reduction in the original permeability of the reservoir rock close to the wellbore. The potential of the near wellbore formation permeability being reduced (damaged) exits from the minutes the drilling bits enters the formation until the wells is abandoned. From the time the drilling bit enters the pay zone until the we... Continue Reading »

GAS LIFT OPTIMIZATION OF OIL PRODUCING WELLS USING PROPER NODAL ANALYSIS

ABSTRACT In every part of the world, financial reports form the basis of communicating the activities and performance of business entities to owners and outsiders. But it is rather unfortunate that most of these financial reports do not meet the need of users as a result of different accounting bodies with varying standards and codes. Most reports are published much more later than the date of the... Continue Reading »

APPLICATION OF INTELLIGENT WELL COMPLETION IN OPTIMIZING PRODUCTION FROM OIL RIM RESERVOIRS

ABSTRACT An oil rim reservoir is a saturated reservoir with an oil column of limited thickness, less than 90 feet, overlain by a gas cap and underlain by an aquifer. Among the various challenges encountered in producing oil rim reservoirs, water and/or gas coning and breakthrough is the most prominent. Water and gas breakthrough occurs majorly due to heel toe effect and reservoir permeability vari... Continue Reading »
