HW# 7- Solution

Problem Statement The following Draw down test has been performed in a cylindrical reservoir assumed to have a drainage area equal to 5,760,000 sqft and the following data: Table 1: Reservoir Data

Estimate Permeability Estimate the Skin factor S Estimate pressure drop due to skin Estimate flow efficiency

Solution Part 1 In a drawdown test, plot of Pwf versus production time in a semi log plot, can give us the reservoir properties as follows: Table 2: Data for semi-log plot

And the semilog plot is as shown in figure 1:

4400 4390 4380 4370 Pwf (psi) 4360 4350 4340 4330 4320 4310 0.1 1 Δt 10 100

Slope of the Horner plot (the straight line) is:

And then k is calculated to be

Part 2 To calculate skin, the following equation is used: [ ( ) ]

Where Pwf(1hr) is the well flowing pressure at at time Δt=1 on the straight line and initial reservoir pressure is the pressure before the production starts or at t = 0, Pi = 4663 Pwf1hr = 4375 S = 3.1 Positive skin is the indication of a damaged well.

Part 3 Pressure drop due to skin can be calculated as

Since this is a damaged well, the flow efficiency is less than 1.
