Cartesian and log-log graph paper are provided separately for use and must be clearly labelled and submitted with your answer booklet. Question 1 PAGE? a. Based on exploratory drilling off the east coast of Trinidad, a gas field was discovered, Briefly compate the major factors which must be considered for the subsurface development of this gas field with that of an oil field, (S marks) b. The results of a differential laboratory separation experiment conducted on the initial gas produced fiom one of the reservoirs in the newly discovered field are given in Table 1, Other pertinent reservoir rock and fluid data are given in Table 2.. Calculate on an acre-ft basis, the following: i, Initial gross gas in place, MSCF. (4 marks) Initial liquids in place, bbl. (8 marks) Initial residue gas in place, MSCP. 2 marks) iv. Initial gas-oil ratio, SCF/bbL. (2 marks) ©. What type of reservoir is this? Justify your answer.
