Lecture note 11

We will look at two types of variable flow area. In linear coordinates, the thickness of the system may be

variable, and in cylindrical coordinates, the radial coordinate itself causes the flow area to be a function of

radius. For simplicity, we will again consider one-dimensional, horizontal, one phase flow.

Linear coordinates

If the thickness of the system is a function of position, x , such as in the following illustration:

∂ ∂

− ( Aρ u) = ( Aφρ ) .

∂x ∂t

For one-dimensional flow only the layer height, h , is varying, so that the continuity equation becomes:

∂ ∂

− ( hρu) = ( hφρ ) ,

∂x ∂t

and the one-dimensional, horizontal, single phase flow equation may be written:

∂ ⎛ kh ∂P ⎞ ∂ ⎛ hφ ⎞ .

⎜ ⎟= ⎜ ⎟

∂ x ⎝ µB ∂ x ⎠ ∂ t ⎝ B ⎠

In discretization of the equation, our grid block system is modified to reflect the variable block height by using

avarage values, as follows:

hi-1 hi hi+1

Δxi-1 Δ xi Δxi+1

The difference form of the flow term in the partial differential equation above will be written in terms of

transmissibilities just as before:

∂ ⎛ kh ∂P ⎞

⎜ ⎟ ≈ T xi +1/ 2 (Pi +1 − Pi ) + T xi −1/ 2 (Pi−1 − Pi ) .

∂ x ⎝ µB ∂ x ⎠ i

However, the definitions of the transmissibilities are now modified to include the block heights of the involved

grid blocks:

2hi +1/ 2 ⎛ k ⎞

T xi +1/ 2 = ⎜ ⎟

Δxi (Δxi +1 + Δxi ) ⎝ µB ⎠ i +1/ 2

2hi −1/ 2 ⎛ k ⎞

T xi −1/ 2 = ⎜ ⎟ ,

Δxi (Δxi −1 + Δxi ) ⎝ µB ⎠ i −1/ 2

Department of Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics 25/1/18

TPG4160 Reservoir Simulation 2018 page 2 of 5

Lecture note 11

where hi +1/ 2 and hi −1/ 2 are the flow heights in positive and negative directions, respectively. Using the positive

direction as example, we shall define these heights by:

x i+1

1

hi +1/ 2 =

( xi +1 − x i ) ∫ h(x) dx ,

xi

which becomes:

hi+1/2 =

( Δx h

i+1 i+1

+ Δx i hi ),

( Δx i+1

+ Δx i )

Correspondingly in the negative direction:

hi −1/ 2 = .

( Δxi −1 + Δxi )

For the right hand side term, we only have to make a slight modification by multiplying by block height:

∂ ⎛ φh ⎞ d(1 / B) ⎤ ∂P

⎜ ⎟ = φh ⎡⎢ r +

c ,

≈ Cp i (Pi − Pit )

∂t ⎝ B ⎠ ⎣B dP ⎥⎦ ∂t

where

hiφi ⎡ c r d(1/ B) ⎤ .

C pi = +

Δt ⎣⎢ B dP ⎦⎥ i

Cylindrical coordinates

Another type of variable flow area is one induced by the coordinate system used. The most common is the one

occurring in radial flow as illustrated below:

Here, even if the block height is constant, the flow area is a function of radius, and for a full cylinder (360

degrees) the area is:

A = 2π rh .

1 ∂ ⎛ k ∂P ⎞ ∂ ⎛ φ ⎞ .

⎜r ⎟= ⎜ ⎟

r ∂r ⎝ µB ∂r ⎠ ∂t ⎝ B ⎠

In a radial system, the pressure distribution will be logarithmic of nature, with most of the pressure drop

occurring close to the center, where the flow area is small:

Department of Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics 25/1/18

TPG4160 Reservoir Simulation 2018 page 3 of 5

Lecture note 11

Since our discretization formulas are more accurate the more linear the pressure distribution is, it is clear that if

we discretize the radial flow term using the same approximations as for the linear equation, the error will be

larger. Therefore, for the radial flow equation, we will first make the following transformation of the r-

coordinate into a u-coordinate:

u = ln(r)

Thus,

du 1

=

dr r

and

r = e

u

The effect of this transformation is that the logarithmic pressure distribution in the radial direction becomes

linear along the u-coordinate:

∂ ⎛ k ∂ P du ⎞ du ∂ ⎛ φ ⎞

e −u ⎜ eu = ,

∂ u ⎝ µB ∂ u dr ⎟⎠ dr ∂ t ⎜⎝ B ⎟⎠

or

∂ ⎛ k ∂P⎞ ∂ ⎛ φ ⎞

e −2u ⎜ = .

∂ u ⎝ µB ∂ u ⎟⎠ ∂ t ⎜⎝ B ⎟⎠

This equation is more linear in u and except for the term e −2u in front of the flow term, it is identical to the linear

flow equation. We will therefore adopt the same approximation of the flow term in respect to u for the equation

above as we used in respect to for the linear equation, with the modification for the e −2u term:

−2u

2e i ⎛ k ⎞

Tui+1/2 =

Δui (Δui+1 + Δui ) ⎜⎝ µB ⎟⎠ i+1/2

−2u

2e i ⎛ k ⎞

Tui−1/2 =

Δui (Δui−1 + Δui ) ⎜⎝ µB ⎟⎠ i−1/2

Substituting back for r = eu , we get the following expressions for the radial transmissibilities:

Lecture note 11

2ri−2 ⎛ k ⎞

Tri+1/2 =

⎛r ⎞ ⎛r ⎞ ⎜⎝ µB ⎟⎠ i+1/2

ln ⎜ i+1/2 ⎟ ln ⎜ i+11/2 ⎟

⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠ ⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠

2ri−2 ⎛ k ⎞

Tri−1/2 =

⎛ ri+1/2 ⎞ ⎛ ri−1/2 ⎞ ⎜⎝ µB ⎟⎠ i−1/2

ln ⎜ ⎟ ln ⎜ ⎟

⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠ ⎝ ri−11/2 ⎠

The harmonic averages for permeability in radial direction may be derived in a similar fashion from the linear

formula:

⎛r ⎞

ln ⎜ i+11/2 ⎟

⎝ ri+1/2 ⎠

ki+1/2 =

1 ⎛ ri+11/2 ⎞ 1 ⎛ ri+1/2 ⎞

ln ⎜ ⎟ + ln ⎜ ⎟

ki+1 ⎝ ri+1/2 ⎠ ki ⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠

and

⎛r ⎞

ln ⎜ i+1/2 ⎟

⎝ ri−11/2 ⎠

ki−1/2 =

1 ⎛ ri−1/2 ⎞ 1 ⎛ ri+1/2 ⎞

ln ⎜ ⎟ + ln ⎜ ⎟

ki−1 ⎝ ri−11/2 ⎠ ki ⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠

Expressions for average mobility terms become:

⎛r ⎞ ⎛r ⎞

ln ⎜ i+11/2 ⎟ λi+1 + ln ⎜ i+1/2 ⎟ λi

⎝ ri+1/2 ⎠ ⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠

λi+1/2 =

⎛r ⎞

ln ⎜ i+11/2 ⎟

⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠

and

⎛r ⎞ ⎛r ⎞

ln ⎜ i−1/2 ⎟ λi−1 + ln ⎜ i+1/2 ⎟ λi

⎝ ri−11/2 ⎠ ⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠

λi−1/2 =

⎛r ⎞

ln ⎜ i+1/2 ⎟

⎝ ri−11/2 ⎠

These formulas apply to the radial grid block system shown below:

ri ri+1

ri-1

ri+1/2 ri+1 1/2

ri-1 1/2 ri-1/2

The position of the grid block centers, relative to the block boundaries, may be computed using the midpoint

between the u-coordinate boundaries:

i

or, in terms of radius:

Department of Petroleum Engineering and Applied Geophysics 25/1/18

TPG4160 Reservoir Simulation 2018 page 5 of 5

Lecture note 11

r = ri+1/2ri−1/2 .

i

Frequently in simulation of flow in the radial direction, the grid blocks sizes are chosen such that:

i

or

⎛r ⎞

ln ⎜ i+1/2 ⎟ = constant ,

⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠

which for a system of N grid blocks and well and external radii of rw and re , respectively, implies that

⎛r ⎞ ⎛r ⎞

N ⋅ln ⎜ i+1/2 ⎟ = ln ⎜ e ⎟

⎝ ri−1/2 ⎠ ⎝ rw ⎠

or

1/N

ri+1/2 ⎛r ⎞

=⎜ e ⎟ = constant .

ri−1/2 ⎝ rw ⎠

This is the formula for logarithmic grid block sizes, and is often used in reservoir simulation of well behavior. If

grid sizes have to conform to other specifications, such as well damage radius, the above formula may still be

useful as a guide to the block sizes.

For the right hand side of the difference equation, the above changes will have no effect provided that the height

is constant. Thus, it will be identical to the one for the linear system.
