Paper presented at the International Oil Conference and Exhibition in Mexico, June 27–30, 2007
Paper Number: SPE-102666-MS
... Abstract Analysis based on analytical solutions dominates in conventional well testing analysis. Analytical solutions, however, meet their challenges under some complex test conditions. This paper presents a case study of horizontal well testing analysis and performance evaluation using...

... a horizontal well in the highest attic of the structure to reactivate the reservoir. STOOIP calculation for this new model yielded a value of 13 MMSTB with 7.8 MMSTB of recoverable reserves and 2.5 MMSTB of remaining reserves, which could be extracted by the new well and finally obtain a recovery factor...

Paper presented at the International Oil Conference and Exhibition in Mexico, June 27–30, 2007
Paper Number: SPE-108779-MS
... Abstract Horizontal well technology has been widely used in developing gas fields. Very commonly, these wells are hydraulically fractured to improve productivity in low permeability reservoirs. A previously developed method, the Distributed Volumetric Source method (DVS), was applied...

... and are being increasingly applied to a wider range of field types. Their efficacy to control the well inflow profile has been confirmed by a variety of field monitoring techniques. An ICD is a choking device installed as part of the sandface completion hardware. It aims to balance the horizontal well's inflow...

Paper presented at the International Oil Conference and Exhibition in Mexico, August 31–September 2, 2006
Paper Number: SPE-102457-MS
... Abstract Over bottom water, a horizontal well will usually perform better than a vertical well because the oil-water contact rises in the shape of a crest instead of a cone. Analytical models have predicted greater critical rates for horizontal wells and greater recovery at water breakthrough...

Paper presented at the SPE International Petroleum Conference in Mexico, November 7–9, 2004
Paper Number: SPE-92041-MS
... We first document the effect of grid size selection and the representation of horizontal wellbore within the grid blocks. Next, we present guidelines to determine the grid size and discuss modifications of the Peaceman’s probe radius formula 1 to improve the simulation of horizontal well...

Paper Number: SPE-92040-MS
... This paper presents a hybrid, numerical-analytical model for the pressure-transient response of a finite-conductivity fracture intercepted by a horizontal well. The model dynamically couples a numerical fracture model with an analytical reservoir model. This approach allows us to include finer details...

... with a known gas-water contact at a lateral distance from wellbore. Case 2: A horizontal well (Well #2) penetrating a heavy-oil reservoir underlain by a water zone. 2 Case 1 The well vertically penetrated a gas reservoir. It was completed in perforations from 9,820 ft to 9,906 ft. The well...

... Abstract When drained volumes want to be increased or to reduce investments with additional drilling wells, we can use horizontal wells as a good alternative for optimum exploitation of the oilfields. This is supported because the horizontal wells productivity becomes higher than in a vertical...
