Volume 10, Issue 1 , January 2021, , Pages 66-79

  Rapid development of technologies, their increasing complexity and variety, together with limited organizational resources and efforts for survival in industrial competitions have made the task of appropriate technology selection a major challenge. The present research is aimed at the formulation of ...  Read More

Characterization of Reservoir Heterogeneity by Capacitance-resistance Model in Water-flooding Projects

Seyed Ehsan Eshraghi; Mohammad Reza Rasaei; Peyman Pourafshary; Amir Salar Masoumi

Volume 5, Issue 3 , July 2016, , Pages 1-13

  Tedious calculations and simulations are needed to obtain an efficient production scenario and/orproper field development strategy. Capacitance-resistance model (CRM) is proved to be a fastreservoir simulation tool using just the field-available data of production and injection rates. Thisapproach sets ...  Read More

A Novel Integrated Approach to Oil Production Optimization and Limiting the Water Cut Using Intelligent Well Concept: Using Case Studies

Turaj Behrouz; Mohammad Reza Rasaei; Rahim Masoudi

Volume 5, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 27-41

  Intelligent well technology has provided facility for real time production control through use of subsurface instrumentation. Early detection of water production allows for a prompt remedial action. Effective water control requires the appropriate performance of individual devices in wells on maintaining ...  Read More

Single-phase Near-well Permeability Upscaling and Productivity Index Calculation Methods

Seyed Shamsollah Noorbakhsh; Mohammad Reza Rasaei; Ali Heydarian; Hamed Behnaman

Volume 3, Issue 4 , October 2014, , Pages 55-66

  Reservoir models with many grid blocks suffer from long run time; it is hence important to deliberate a method to remedy this drawback. Usual upscaling methods are proved to fail to reproduce fine grid model behaviors in coarse grid models in well proximity. This is attributed to rapid pressure changes ...  Read More
