NOTE: Please detail the formula, steps, and units for the calculation. Missing formula, steps, and units can lead to lost points.

Problem 1:

The following data are taken from an oil field that had no original gas cap and no water drive:

Initial reservoir pressure = 3500 psia Initial reservoir temperature = 140 deg F Bubble point pressure of the reservoir p b = 2400 psia Oil pore volume of reservoir = 75 MM cu ft Solubility of gas in crude oil below bubble pressure = 0.42 SCF/STB/psi Formation volume factor B oi at 3500 psia = 1.333 bbl/STB Gas deviation factor z at 1500 psia and 140 deg F = 0.95 Oil produced when pressure at 1500 psia N p = 1.0 MM STB Net cumulative produced gas-oil ratio R p at 1500 psia = 2800 SCF/STB

1.1 Calculate the initial STB of oil in reservoir

10.02 MM STB

1.2 Calculate the initial gas-oil ratio and SCF of gas in reservoir (using the definition of gas solubility in crude oil).

Solubility of gas in crude oil = 0.42 SCF/STB/psi, at bubble point pressure of 2400 psia,

gas-oil ratio R

Above bubble point pressure, gas-oil ratio rea mins constant, Therefore, G = 1,008 SCF/STB × 10.02 MM STB = 10.1 MMM SCF

= 2400 psia

× 0.42 SCF/STB/psia = 1,008 SCF/STB

soi

1.3 Calculate the SCF of gas remaining in the reservoir at 1500 psia

N

gas remaining in the reservoir = 10.1 - 2.8 = 7.3 MMM SCF

1.4 Calculate the SCF of free gas in the reservoir at 1500 psia

With gas solubility of 0.42 SCF/STB/psi, and initial R

at 1500 psia, the R

1.6 Calculate the reservoir volume of the free gas at 1500 psia V g = 1.62 MMM SCF * B g = 17.4 MM CF

1.7 Calculate the single phase oil formation volume factor at 1500 psia V o at 1500 psia = total initial reservoir volume – free gas volume = 75 MM CF – 17.4 MM CF = 57.6 MM CF = 10.26 MM bbl Under this condition, the equivalent volume under standard condition in SCF is:

N – N p = 10.02 – 1.00 MM STB = 9.02 MM STB B o = V o / (N-N p ) = 1.137 bbl/STB

1.8 Calculate the total, or two phase, oil volume formation factor at 1500 psia. B t = B o + (R soi -R so )B g = 1.137 bbl/STB + (1008-630) SCF/STB * 0.01075 ft 3 /SCF / (5.615 ft 3 /bbl) = 1.85 bbl/STB

Problem 2:

The R sand is a volumetric oil reservoir whose PVT properties are shown below. Reservoir temperature is 150 deg F. When the reservoir pressure dropped from an initial pressure of 2500 psia to an average pressure of 1600 psia, a total of 26.0 MM STB of oil had been produced. The cumulative gas-oil ratio at 1600 psia was 954 SCF/STB. No Appreciate amount of water was produced, and standard condition were 14.7 psia and 60 deg F.

Problem 3:

The following table provides fluid property data for an initially undersaturated oil reservoir. The initial connate water saturation was 25%. Initial reservoir T and p were 97 deg F and 2110 psia, respectively. The bubble-pint pressure was 1700 psia. Average compressibility factors between the initial and bubble-point pressures were 4.0(10) -6 psia - 1 and 3.1(10) -6 psia -1 for the formation and water, respectively. The critical gas saturation at which gas flow starts to form is estimated to be 10%. Determine the recovery factor at the bubble point pressure. Assume it is a volumetric reservoir.
