Description

This SPE course exposes participants to various elements of fluid and heat flows that occur in production operations. Using spreadsheet calculations of mechanistic models, participants will compute pressure and temperature profiles in both conduits of gas-lift wells and in single- and multiple-string completions, and temperature profiles for a circulating fluid. These principles can be extended to tackle wellbore solids problems and production through offshore risers. Field examples will be discussed throughout this workshop.

Topics covered include the following:
  • Empirical and Mechanistic Models for Two-Phase Fluid and Heat Flows
  • Conventional and Seamless Systems Analysis
  • Computing Pressure and Temperature Profiles in Gas-Lift Wells
  • Computing Pressure and Temperature Profiles in Multiple-String Completions 
  • Computing Pressure and Temperature Profiles for a Circulating Fluid
  • Understanding Heat Losses in Offshore Risers Through Modeling Transient Fluid and Heat Flows 
  • Combating Asphaltene and Paraffin Deposition
  • Understanding Production Log Response Using Flow-Pattern Maps 
  • Understanding Water-Cut Measurements in a Three-Phase Flow Environment 
  • Understanding Issues Related to Gauge Placement During Transient Testing
Cancellation non-refundable a week prior to the event.
