Reservoir Deliverability

Abstract

Reservoir deliverability is defined as the oil or gas production rate achievable from a reservoir at a given bottom-hole pressure. It is a major factor affecting well deliverability. Reservoir deliverability determines types of completion and artificial lift methods to be used. This chapter presents and illustrates various mathematical models for estimating deliverability of oil and gas reservoirs penetrated by different types of wells including vertical, horizontal, multilateral, fractured, and multistage fractured wells. Production engineers should make selections of the models based on the best estimate of his/her reservoir conditions, i.e., flow regime and pressure level. The selected models should ...
