210 Professor: TA: Textbook: Kishore K. Mohanty, firstname.lastname@example.org, CPE 3.168, 512-4713077 Serdar Bender, email@example.com, Room 3.316 Enhanced Oil Recovery, Lake (1989). Read course notes by Dr. Pope on Fluid Flow in Porous Media. Fluid flow in porous media along with good math skills This course will cover basic concepts of reservoir engineering with applications to the production of hydrocarbons from both gas and oil reservoirs. The governing equations for flow in permeable media will be derived and solved for several special cases of basic reservoir engineering. Concepts such as streamline flow; pseudosteady state flow, fractional flow and both immiscible and miscible flow will be reviewed and applied. Analytical and numerical solutions to the governing equations are the basis for well performance, reservoir mechanics, oil recovery mechanisms, reservoir sweep efficiency and the design of processes such as water flooding. Petrophysics, the behavior of fluids in permeable media and reservoir characterization will be integrated with the reservoir engineering as needed and appropriate for the applications. Some reservoir engineering applications will require the use of a numerical reservoir simulator. • • • • •

~25 % ~40 % ~10 % ~5% ~20 %
No make-up exams will be given. If you miss a test, then the points for this test will be added to the final exam. No late homework is accepted. The problem sets will be due as agreed on in class. Ethics Policy: Verbal discussion of problems among students is acceptable for home work after you have done significant individual effort and the discussion is brief and neither student copies material. All work turned in under your name must be your own.
Observance of University Policies: Standard University policies relating to accommodation for students with disabilities and to scholastic dishonesty will be followed in this course. Information regarding these policies may be found in the General Information Bulletin.
