1) A single well located in a deepwater reservoir is producing oil at a constant rate
of 5500 STB/D.
Calculate the pressure at the wellbore and at a location 500 feet away from the
well after 5 days, and 10 days of production.
The drainage boundary of the well is located 1000 feet away. Other rock and
fluid properties of the reservoir are as follows:
Initial pressure, 19,250 psia
Formation thickness, 345 ft
Formation permeability, 7 md
Formation porosity, 0.19
Total compressibility, 4 106 psi1
Oil viscosity, 4.5 cp
Oil FVF, 1.1 RB/STB
Reservoir boundary, 1000 ft
Wellbore radius, rw 0.5 ft
skin factor: 2

2) Calculate the total pressure drop at an observation well located 1500 feet from
a producing well in a virgin reservoir. The single production well was maintained
at a constant production rate of 300 STB/D for 10 days; then the rate was
increased to a constant rate of 500 STB/D for an additional 25 days. The initial
reservoir pressure was 2500 psia. Assume the reservoir was infinite acting
during this test. Other reservoir and fluid properties are as follows:
Initial pressure, 2500 psia
Formation thickness, 15 ft
Formation permeability, 300 md
Formation porosity, 0.24
Total compressibility, 6 _ 106 psi1
Oil viscosity, 4.2 cp
Oil FVF, 1.2 RB/STB
Wellbore radius, rw 0.5 ft
3) A reservoir at initial pressure of 2500 psia has two wells (Well A and Well B) on
production for 35 days from initial production. Well A produced at a constant
rate of 500 STB/D and is located 750 feet from an observation well. Well B
produced at a constant rate of 300 STB/D and is located 1000 feet from the
same observation well. If the reservoir is infinite in size, calculate the total
pressure drop measured at the observation well at the end of 35 days. This
reservoir has the same rock and fluid properties as the reservoir in previous
4) Asume that the well in case 2, is 1500 feet from a sealing fault. Calculate the
total pressure drop at the wellbore.
5) Three exploration wells have been drilled into a newly discovered oil reservoir.
Well B is 1400 feet from well A, Well C is 2200 ft from A and Well C is 3000 ft
from B.

1400 ft
3000 ft
Well A is an observation well (it has a pressure gauge in the hole to measure the
pressure response due to production from wells B and C, but is not itself used
for production). Well C begins producing at 200 STB/D at time=0. Well B begins
producing at 100 STB/D 48 hours later.
