‘A high rate natural gas well drains 640 acres. Use the graph shown below to answer the following questions. Additional known parameters for the well follow. IPR 6009 — Fracrack Completion rcPackcomoleton 2 20 1000 a) Atwhat rate, q, in MSCFid will he gravel pack wel flow for Pwr = 1500 psi? At what rate will the FracPack well flow with the same wellbore flowing pressure? b) The equation for Reynolds Number, Nre for flow ina porous medium is given by Nags = pd / where pis the gas density in gicc, v is the formation bulk flow velocity in cvs, dis the pore diameter in cm, and ris the viscosity in poise. Fully turbulent flow develops when Nee > 10. Use the information provided to estimate the Reynolds number at the wellbore radius for the gravel pack well for pore diameter of 0.01 mm. [HINTS: Be careful about units. Use the average reservoir pressure and the real gas equation of state to calculate the gas density. 1 g/cc= 62.4 lbmvt8,1 ft = 30.48 cm, 1 poise = 100 cp] ©) Beyond what radius in the reservoir is the flow strictly laminar (Nae < 1) for the gravel ack well? Following are initial production from a condensate production wel Primary Separator GOR 11,000 SCF/STB Stock tank GOR ‘350 SCFISTB Stock tank oil gravity 46°API Molecular weight of stock tank oil 160 poundsimole, ‘Wet gas gravity ost Initial reservoir pressure 3600 psia Initial reservorr temperature 180° Dew point pressure 2400 psia Zat initial reservoir pressure 074 Zat p= 2400 psia 073 a) A volumetric estimate for the gross gas in place based on seismic data is 5000 CF. Use the production data to estimate ihe initial STB of condensate in place. b) Estimate the volume of gross gas that will be produced when the reservoir pressure is equal to the dew point pressure, assuming there is no water influx and no gas injection. c) Estimate the STB of condensate that will be produced when the reservoir pressure is at the dew point pressure, again assuming there is no water influx and no gas injection. d) Estimate gross gas recovery factor if an aquifer supports average reservoir pressure at 3000 psia and invades 80% of the gas reservoir with S, = 0.2 and Sj, =03. €) Estimate the condensate recovery factor for the same conditions as in part d) f)_ How do we expect the condensate recovery factor to change if the aquifer supports average reservoir pressure at 2300 psia?
