2 Application of the Law of Conservation of Mass to oil and gas reservoirs (Original hydrocarbon mass)-(produced hydrocarbon mass)=(remaining hydrocarbon mass)

3 Initial Conditions P=P i Later Conditions P


4 Understand reservoir performance Identify drive mechanism Predict future performance Estimate OGIP Predict productions rates/pressure decline Estimate ultimate recovery

5 GRM-Engler-09 Gas property, f(T,P, ) Measured pressure Cumulative gas P

6 1. Collect data: a)Initial reservoir pressure b)Various reservoir pressures throughout the life of the well c)Associated cumulative production at each pressure 2. Determine z-factor for each pressure 3. Calculate P/z 4. Plot P/z versus G P 5. Draw a straight line through the data points. 6. Extrapolate the straight line to P/z = 0 7. Obtain estimate of P/z=0: G p must equal G 8. Estimate ultimate abandonment pressure
