Influence of Wavelet Phase Rotation on Post Stack Model Based Seismic Inversion: A Case Study of X-field, Niger Delta, Nigeria

The effect of wavelet phase rotation on post inversion in X-field Niger Delta has been investigated. This paper demonstrates the influence of wavelet phase employed in model based seismic inversion. It presents the problem associated with variation in wavelet phases employed in post-stack model based seismic inversion which affect the discrimination of litho-fluid contrast from inverted seismic volume. The study was...

A Numerical Study of Heterogeneity Effect on Engineered Water Injection in Carbonates using Five Spot Pattern

One the promising and emerging enhanced oil recovery techniques in both sandstones and carbonates is Engineered Water Injection (EWI). However, few studies discussed the field-scale applications of this technique in heterogeneous carbonate formations. This paper is an extension of our previous work of the EWI technology at core-scale. This research numerically investigates heterogeneity effect on EWI technique in...

To What Extent Could Methanol, Toluene and Gas Condensate affect Heavy Crude oil Viscosity, Sheikhan Oil Field, Kurdistan, Iraq?

Sheikhan crude oil faces obstacles during transportation from production wellsite to processing facilities due to high viscosity. To enhance the flowability, reducing the sheikhan crude oil viscosity is a promising approach. For this purpose, a heavy crude oil sample from Sheikhan oilfield was blended with various rate of industrial polar solvents such as (Toluene, methanol) and gas condensate at different...

Effect Of Improved Water And Gas Injection Schemes On Synthetic Oil Rim Models

Oil recovery in oil rim reservoirs are usually affected by reservoir and operational parameters. Placket Burman design of experiment was used to develop various models of oil rims with a broader range of uncertainties. Mensuration analysis was used to create the basic grid designs while the Eclipse software was used to incorporate PVT (pressure, volume and temperature) and solution properties to create a black oil model...

Testing and Analysis Rheological Properties of Water Based Mud Using New Organic Additives

Polymers which are used as fluid loss control agents are commonly organic and are used in both circulating as well as non-circulating phases of drilling operations. Drilling costs associated with these types of agents are very high contributing to 5 – 15% of total drilling costs and hence it is very important to find a substitute for these additives that can be used for same purpose but at lower drilling cost and at better...

Laboratory study of rheological properties of novel drilling fluid

Rheological specifications of drilling mud which contains nano zinc oxide ( 1 gr) in high temperature – high pressure viscometer are considered in this work to simulate the drilling conditions occurred in deep wells. Shear stress, shear rate, effective viscosity, plastic viscosity and gel strength are measured versus temperature (30, 40, 50, 60, 70 and 80 C) and working time (0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 10, 12 and 15 days). Also,...

Enhanced Oil Recovery Practices: Global Trend, Nigeria’s Present Status, Prospects and Challenges

Unimpressive oil recovery characterized by declining oil rates and increasing water cut and gas-oil ratio trend necessitates the need for enhanced oil recovery (EOR). However, at present, EOR is yet to be applied in Nigeria, though it was reported that by December 2008 approximately 52 billion barrels of crude oil were potential targets for EOR in Nigeria. It is against this background that this paper reviews the global...

High resolution infill drilling modeling: A viable tool for effective field development and optimization

The drive for infill drilling is capacitated by the sudden quest for oil and gas development and optimization particularly in the Niger Delta has critical geotechnical constraints such as the favourable position, number of wells and even to know when the well should come on stream. The aim of this study is to apply the above statement with the view of determining the reasonable maximum cumulative gas to be produced and to...
