Description

This course addresses the key subjects concerning the performance of gas condensate systems from reserve evaluation to production optimisation planning.

Course Level: Advanced / Specialised
Instructor: Curtis H. Whitson

Designed for you, if you are...

  • An experienced reservoir engineer dealing with the behaviour of condensate systems and wish to refine your expertise in phase behaviour and multi-phase fluid flow

How we build your confidence

  • Demonstrations of which gas condensate PVT data are important, and how to use these data
  • Using a PVT lab report to develop an EOS or black-oil model for gas condensate modelling
  • Quantifying the importance of condensate production and how it can be best forecast
  • Fluid characterisation with an EOS using a commercial PC-based program will be performed
  • Compositional reservoir simulation exercises are also used to demonstrate key issues for well deliverability and gas cycling

The benefits from attending

By the end of the course you will feel more confident in your understanding of:

  • “What’s important and why” about gas condensate PVT behaviour
  • PVT lab reports and how to use them
  • The quantitative importance of condensate blockage on well deliverability
  • When gas cycling is opportune, and when not

Topics

  • Introduction and general review of gas condensate reservoir performance
  • Sampling methods and laboratory PVT measurements
  • Equation-of-state (EOS) fluid characterisation
  • Material balance methods including two-phase Z-factor, water influx, trapped gas / condensate and the effect of formation water compressibility
  • Long-term well inflow performance, condensate blockage skin and well test interpretation
  • Tubing lift performance, minimum lift and erosional velocity
  • Special core analysis and relative permeabilities
  • Gas cycling considerations, injection patterns, revaporisation and miscibility
  • Layered, no-crossflow reservoir and well performance
