1. Chapter 3 Material Balance Applied to Oil Reservoirs § 3.1 Introduction -The Schilthuis material balance equation - Basic tools of reservoir engineering => Interpreting and predicting reservoir performance. -Material balance 1. zero dimension – this chapter 2. multi-dimension (multi-phase) – reservoir simulation

2. § 3.2 General form of the material balance equation for a hydrocarbon reservoir Underground withdrawal (RB) = Expansion of oil and original dissolved gas (RB)………(A) + Expansion of gascap gas (RB) ……………… ………(B) + Reduction in HCPV due to connate water expansion and decrease in the pore volume (RB)……………………… …….……(C)

3. Expansion of oil & originally dissolved gas

4. Expansion of the gascap gas Expansion of the gascap gas =gascap gas (at p) –gascap (at pi)

5. Change in the HCPV due to the connate water expansion & pore volume reduction

6. Underground withdrawal

7. The general expression for the material balance as

8. where

9. No initial gascap, negligible water influx • With water influx eq(3.12) becomes • Eq.(3.12) having a combination drive-all possible sources of energy.

10. reducing the M.B to a compact form to • quantify reservoir performance • determining the main producing • characteristics, • for example, GOR; water cut • determining the pressure decline in the • reservoir • - estimating the primary recovery factor • - Solution gas drive • - Gascap drive • Natural water • drive • - Compaction drive In terms of § 3.4 Reservoir Drive Mechanisms Reservoir drive mechanism

11. § 3.5 Solution gas drive (a) above the B.P. pressure (b) below the B.P. pressure

12. Above the B.P. pressure- no initial gascap, m=0- no water flux, We=0 ; no water production, Wp=0- Rs=Rsi=Rp from eq.(3.7)

13. Exercise3.1 Solution gas drive, undersaturated oil reservoir Determine R.F. Solution: FromTable2.4(p.65) Eq(3.18)

15. Bo as Function of Pressure

16. Rs as Function of Pressure

17. Bg and E as Function of Pressure

18. Producing Gas-oil Ratio (R) as Function of Pressure

19. Below B.P. pressure (Saturation oil)P<Pb =>gas liberated from saturated oil

20. Exercise3.2 Solution gas drive; below bubble point pressure Reservoir-described in exercise 3.1 Pabandon = 900psia(1) R.F = f(Rp)? Conclusion?(2) Sg(free gas) = F(Pabandon)?Solution:(1) From eq(3.7)

21. Eq(3.7) becomes Conclusion:

22. liberated gas in the reservoir total amount of gas gas produced at surface gas still dissolved in the oil = − − (2) the overall gas balance
