  • Waterflooding: Performance Predictions and Surveillance

    Instructor - Michael L. Wiggins, Ph.D., P.E

    This five-day course covers the reservoir engineering aspects of waterflooding. The seminar combines geology, rock and fluid properties, and immiscible displacement theory to develop waterflooding prediction techniques and to aid in the evaluation of actual waterflood performance behavior. Detailed predictions of oil and water producing rates, water injection rates, and recovery efficiency (areal, vertical, and displacement), and an analysis of other variables which control recovery efficiency are included. Also discussed are waterflood surveillance techniques such as production plots, WOR analysis, floodable pore volume versus primary depletion pore volume, injection profile testing, pressure transient testing, step-rate testing, Hall plots, pattern balancing, bubble maps, volumetric sweep evaluation, and injection efficiency determination.

  • Simulation Based Waterflood Analysis

    Instructor - Frank J. "Deacon" Marek, P.E

    This five-day course covers waterflood theory and the traditional waterflood evaluation techniques. Attendees will also learn basic reservoir simulation skills, after which they will use a single pattern simulation model to solve numerous waterflood evaluation problems. The example problems are specifically designed to address real-world situations and they also reinforce theoretical waterflood principles. The specific software used in the course is Merlin, a black oil reservoir simulation model created and marketed by Gemini Solutions, Inc.
