Gas Condensate Studies

whitson is involved in gas condensate reservoir simulation studies. One main purpose of these studies is gas cycling EOR. The other purpose is to quantify the magnitude of condensate blockage, inclusive capillary number and non-Darcy effect, on individual well deliverability. These latter studies are needed to reliably match the historical performance of existing wells, and to forecast future deliverability of existing and new wells with reservoir simulation models.

For lower-permeability gas condensate reservoirs, producing wells may experience significant loss in well deliverability due to condensate blockage. The gas condensate relative permeabilities are important for modeling the condensate blockage effect. Collaborating with commercial laboratories, whitson designs, manages and interprets studies to measure gas condensate relative permeability — to capture near wellbore effects and develop reliable relative permeability models that include capillary number and non-Darcy effects.
