Duvernay – Multi-Client PVT Study

Last updated: 10 January 2022 Duvernay – Multi-Client Study The Duvernay multi-client project was first initiated in 2020. The main objective of the study was to create one, field-wide equation of state (EOS) model for the entire Duvernay. Since then more data has been incorporated into the model, resulting in a more robust thermodynamic description. […]

Analytical vs. Numerical RTA

Author: Ilina Yusra Analyzing infinite-acting linear flow using the square root of time plot has been important in tight unconventional reservoirs since it was first introduced in 1988 by Wattenbarger et al. The goal of the analysis is to determine the fundamental reservoir parameters by solving the analytically derived equations for the two flow regimes […]

To tune or not to tune BIP’s when lumping: That’s the question

EOS Component Lumping Optimization To reduce CPU time in compositional petroleum simulation models (e.g. compositional reservoir simulations), a minimum number of components should be used in the equation of state (EOS) to describe the fluid phase and volumetric behavior. A ″detailed” EOS model often contains from 20 to 40 components, with the first 10 components […]

whitson+ in the cloud … with diamonds

Author: Markus Blytt With the creation of Fortran during the 1950s and 1960s, computer science took a giant leap in the direction of popularizing the art of coding. Today, Fortran is considered an ancient language, mainly because of two things: (1) a wide range of much more high-level programming languages exist, making it easier for […]

Numerical RTA – What’s New?

Two common goals of Rate Transient Analysis (RTA) are the quantification of early time well performance using the Linear Flow Parameter (LFP), as well as Original Oil In Place (OOIP) volume being drained. These two parameters are essential for understanding the effects of completions, geology, and depletion which then advises different strategies for optimizing the […]
