Objectives and Content
The course is an introduction to multiphase flow in oil and gas reservoirs and covers saturation equations for flow in porous media, the Buckley-Leverett model, flow fractions, well testing and the material balance equation.
After the course PTEK212 the student will be able to:
- derive and use the fundamental transport equations in porous media (hydrocarbon reservoirs) for both single- and multiphase flow
- explain problems regarding formulation of material balance and saturation equations for porous media
- explain and describe micro- and macroscopic phenomena in reservoirs
- apply different mathematical models for pressure testing in oil and gas wells
- interpret production tests in oil and gas wells
- explain concepts such as decline analysis and material balance in oil and gas reservoirs
