Effects Of Heterogeneity On The Petrophysical Parameters Of Sandstone Reservoirs And Volumetrics :Niger Delta

This  study  identified  and  correlated  hydrocarbon  bearing  reservoirs,  interpreted  geological  structures  and  petrophysical parameters  and  described  facies  and  environment  of  deposition  using  seismic  and  well  log  data.  These  were  with  a  view  to assessing  the  impact  of  reservoir  heterogeneity  on  petrophysical  parameters  and  to  determine  the  hydrocarbon  potential  of “Devo”  Field,  Niger  Delta.  Po...

THE EFFECTS OF FOAM AND WATER ALTERNATING GAS INJECTION ON PERFORMANCE OF THIN OIL RIM RESERVOIRS

Recovery from thin oil rims are generally affected by the depletion strategies, reservoirarchitecture, operational and reservoir uncertainties. Irrespective of the oil rim thickness,size of the gas cap and aquifer, recoveries are generally low because of pressure depletionrates. Oil recoveries during gas and water injections are also often low due to ineffectivestudy of uncertainties in reservoir parameters. Previous studies on Water Alternating Gas(WAG) injection were based on less profitabl...

A Comparative Study of Gas Condensate Stabilization Techniques using Aspen HYSYS

AbstractIn this report, we perform a comparison of two gas condensate stabilization techniques: fractional distillation and multi-flash vaporization. Our prime objective is to compare relevant parameters .e.g. Reid vapor pressure (RVP) and associated costs in order to determine the more effective method for the stabilization of our gas condensate feed. The Aspen Plus software application suite was extensively used for the process design and simulation as well as the economic analysis for this...
