Abstract

Understanding the behaviour of pressure distribution completed in two layered reservoir subject to both active gas cap and bottom water drive mechanisms is very important in reservoir management. To determine the factors that affect pressure distribution of horizontal wells in a layered reservoir subjected simultaneously with a gas-cap at the top and bottom water drives, well completion was carried out in a particular layer and one of the parameters was varied while the others were kept constant. The results show that the following factors: (i) Wellbore radius (ii) Well Length and (iii) Pay thickness affect pressure distribution in two-layered reservoir subject to both active gas cap and bottom water drive which affect pressure distribution.
