Paper presented at the SPE Permian Basin Oil and Gas Recovery Conference, May 15–17, 2001
Paper Number: SPE-70013-MS
... Abstract This study investigates the effect of horizontal wellbore hydraulics on the early time dynamic behavior of horizontal wells. A finite conductivity model has been developed to couple infinite-conductivity horizontal well model based on uniform flux solution and finite conductivity...

... for different models, as can m and b. The two models we selected for the evaluation method both have analytical solutions with a linear relationship between inverse injectivity and a time function. Early-time linear flow model One commonly used model for horizontal well flow is to divide the flow...

Paper Number: SPE-35212-MS
... As horizontal drilling increased, operators began calling for The Railroad Commission to adopt special field rules to regulate horizontal wells in individual fields. In response, the Railroad Commission began issuing special field rules for horizontal wells in 1989. 3 Special field rule...

Paper Number: SPE-35207-MS
...Rationale for Drilling Horizontal Wells The old saying "If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it" should be the basic philosophy behind deciding to drill a well horizontally. There must be some rationale for drilling laterals as opposed to vertical wells, and some of the reasons are as follows...

Paper Number: SPE-35210-MS
... efficiently water injection sweeps oil to a producing well in a cross section view. Designing horizontal wells that economically maximize both areal and vertical sweep efficiencies is critical to success in a multi-layer five spot waterflood. Areal Sweep Fig. 4a shows a typical one mile by one mile...

Paper presented at the Permian Basin Oil and Gas Recovery Conference, March 16–18, 1994
Paper Number: SPE-27689-MS
... Abstract The potential for severe formation damage around horizontal wells exists due to the increased time of formation exposure to the drilling fluids as compared to the time that a vertical well is exposed to these fluids. This paper explains that the combined effect of the formation damage...

... ABSTRACT Natural gas production from coalbeds using horizontal wells may be of interest to producers in the future. Since sedimentary gas reserves are limited, the unconventional gas reservoirs could be an alternative resource to meet the demand for natural gas. Naturally fractured coalbeds...

... occurs with high velocities of gas and liquid and high drawdown on a horizontal well. When it does occur, the model provides some slugging characteristics such as: slug frequency, gas bubble velocity, liquid slug velocity, gas bubble length, liauid slug length, and time to pass a single gas bubble...

... favorable configuration occurs when two opposed horizontal wells are drilled from injection and production wells so that the opposed laterals are parallel in the patterns, and extended until the horizontal segments almost meet midway between the like wells. Compared to five-spot patterns with vertical wells...

ABSTRACT This paper describes the status of an ongoing project to both prove the feasibility of and provide a testbed for the development of processes and tools for drilling with coiled tubing. To date a total of three horizontal wells have...
