Why Choose this Course?
This course is designed to provide design aspects required for successful water flooding plus main reasons for failures. It presents a comprehensive coverage of analytical and applied aspects of water flooding including rock and fluid properties, theory, prediction methods of Stiles, Craig-Geffen-Morse, and Dykstra-Parsons, surface production facilities, and water flood problems and optimization. Water affects every stage of oilfield life from exploration through development, production, and finally to abandonment.
The course covers process description, pattern selection, injectivity issues, and design’s procedure. Furthermore, the course provides all components of produced water analysis and its required chemical treatment unit. It describes important measurements of water flooding to identify main problems, examine treatments and provide solutions. Actual field cases for optimum application will be explained with in-class exercises.
This course will feature:
- Basics rock and fluid properties controlling water flooding
- Selection a candidate reservoir for water flood and design criteria
- Components of water flood plant and stages of actual field case application
- Calculation of water flooding injectivity and conductance ratio
- Diagnostics, indicators, and surveillance
- Surface facilities and water flood plant
- Analytical and prediction methods: Stiles, CGM, and Dykstra-Parsons
