An idealized model has been developed for the purpose of studying the characteristic behavioroja permeable medium which contains regions which contribute sigizificantly to tbe pore volume O! the system but contribute negligibly to the flow capacity; e.g., a naturally fractured or vugular reservoir, Vnsteady-state flow in this model reservoir has been investigated analytically. The pressure buiid-up performance has been examined insomedetait; and, a technique foranalyzing tbebuild.up data to…

Simulation of Naturally Fractured Reservoirs with SimBestII

Simulation of naturally fractured reservoirs is one of the laborious techniques. This is because there are two different porous media in which fluids exist and flow. These porous media exhibit wide

Transient Pressure Analysis of Pressure Sensitive Naturally Fractured Reservoirs

This paper presents the results of a study with the main aim of investigating the effect of considering the pressure sensitivity of the natural fractures of a fissured formation on the transient

Application of Pressure Type Curve Matching for Characterizing the Naturally Fractured Reservoir

Naturally fractured reservoirs have an important role in the production and reserves of hydrocarbons, where more than 40% of the oil and gas reservoir production comes from this reservoir type. There

PRESSURE AND PRESSURE DERIVATIVE ANALYSIS FOR LONG NATURALLY FRACTURED RESERVOIRS USING THE TDS TECHNIQUE

Normally, in a heterogeneous formation, the transition period of flow from fissures to matrix takes place during the radial flow regime. However, depending upon the value of the interporosity flow

Quasi-Analytical Model of the Transient Behavior Pressure in an Oil Reservoir Made Up of Three Porous Media Considering the Fractional Time Derivative

The present work proposes a new model to capture high heterogeneity of single phase flow in naturally fractured vuggy reservoirs. The model considers a three porous media reservoir; namely, fractured

A TRANSIENT PRESSURE STUDY ON THE INFLUENCE OF BLOCK SIZE FOR DRAWDOWN TESTS IN NATURALLY FRACTURED RESERVOIRS

Block size has been concluded to be one of the main parameters of a naturally fractured reservoir. In onephase flow, it controls the transition from the early fracture dominated stages of production

Analysis of flow behavior in fractured lithophysal reservoirs.

Dual-porosity behaviour of naturally fractured reservoirs

A dual-porosity model based on the modified formulation by Barenblatt et al. has been presented for the simulation of naturally fractured reservoirs. It is shown that neglecting terms in the flow
