  42. Outline • Introduction • Conventional WOR Analysis (Steady-State WOR Model) • Pseudosteady-State WOR Model • Analysis of WOR • Conclusions and Recommendations

  43. Conclusions Pseudosteady-state WOR model • We have developed a new pss WOR model for boundary-dominated reservoir behavior. • The proposed pss WOR model provides the best representation of the oil and water production data for the cases that we in-vestigated. • The only significant limitation of the our model is that it does not provide a mechan-ism for the prediction of future production

  44. Conclusions (cont.) Estimation of Movable Oil • We provide a compilation of the "conven-tional" straight-line extrapolation methods. These techniques should be applied simultaneously in order to obtain consis-tent estimates of movable oil. • We proposed two new methods for estimating movable oil reserves: • 1/fw versus Np • 1/qo versus Np/qo

  45. Conclusions (cont.) Estimation of Movable Oil • The results obtained by these new methods correspond quite well to the results obtained "conventional" WOR techniques. Analysis of Oil and Water Production Data • We note a straight-line behavior for the fwc and WORc functions plotted versus Np. However, the extrapolation of these straight-line trends does not lead to similar result for movable oil as the "conventional" extrapolation techniques.

  46. Conclusions (cont.) Analysis of Oil and Water Production Data • We have extended the diagnostic plots proposed by Chan. The following obser-vations are noted: • unit slope of the WOR and WOR integral and integral-derivative functions when plotted versus t, to, tt. • the WOR' function is typically very erratic and can not be used for routine analysis due to poor overall behavior.

  47. Conclusions (cont.) Analysis of Oil and Water Production Data • We believe that the X-plot method provides no substantive advantage over the "conventional" extrapolation techniques. The extrapolation of the X-function tends to significantly overestimate the value of movable oil.

  48. Recommendations • Investigate the possibility of using the proposed pss WOR model for the estimation of movable oil. • Examine a possibility to develop an analysis scheme to estimate pss parameters (bpsso, bpssw, mo, and mw). We suggest that the para-meters can be further used for reservoir analysis. • We suggest further qualitative and quantitative analysis for the various WOR trends as a function of time, cumulative production, material balance time. A”type curve" approach may be possible.
