Reservoir and Stimulation Break-Out Session Gas Well Deliquification Conference Efren Munoz Denver, 25-Feb-14
Topics Covered Input data review Specific Nodal Analysis applications Production drawdown management
Input Data Review – Pr (from DFIT tests) DFIT answer 3 questions: – Fracture Gradient (can we frac?) – Pore pressure of the system (idea of Pr) – Permeability (idea of K.h) – VFC (from FGS) Helps to tune the “vertical flow correlation” (VFC) Once the VFC is established, it is used to calculate BHFP based on WHFP This is a continuous effort as the VFC changes as the reservoir pressure declines
Specific Applications of Nodal Analysis Flowline modeling to identify restriction due to scale deposits – Just define a nodal model that consists only of a flow line, with a source and a “solution node”, define a “horizontal well correlation”, provided that initial and final pressures are known, run a sensitivity to ID until it matches the pressure drop. Groups of wells represented by a P vs. Q relationship – A flow station or a manifold may be represented as a “super well” by an “IPR” curve built using actual data WHFP (psia) Rate (blpd)
Production drawdown management – Typical nodal sensitivity analysis by reducing production choke size and re-calculating production rates and pressures (upstream and downstream the choke). Then monitor the drawdown (difference between THFP and Pdownstream the choke). – Promised to show some actual data of COP experience managing production drawdown in Eagle Ford for 2015 GWD.
