Analyzing hhe design Of submersible lifted deviated oil wells

Kahya, Ali Cenk
Electrical Submersible Pumping (ESP) is a well known artificial lift technique in reservoirs having high-water cut and low gas-oil ratio. It is known as an effective and economical method of producing large volumes of fluid under different well conditions. ESP equipments are capable of producing in a range of 200 b/d to 60.000 b/d. A case study was done, by designing 10 deviated or horizontal wells selected from the Y-oilfield in Western Siberia. SubPUMP software developed by IHS Energy is used for designing the ESP systems of these wells. These 10 wells will be working with variable speed drives. After selecting the available equipment from the inventory, the best running frequencies are selected for these wells. Evaluations of the designs are made from the pump performance graphs of each well. The pumps should work within their optimum efficiency ranges. These ranges can be seen from the pump performance curves. If the designs made are not within these efficiency ranges, designs should be evaluated and selecting new equipment should be should be an option. Because working outside the optimum efficiency ranges will decrease the production, shorten the runlifes of the pumps and the production will not be stable.


Offshore oil slick detection with remote sensing techniques
Akar, Sertaç; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi; Department of Geological Engineering (2007)
The aim of this thesis is to develop a methodology for detection of naturally occurring offshore oil slicks originating from hydrocarbon seeps using satellite remote sensing techniques. In this scope, Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery has been utilized. Case study area was Andrusov High in the Central Black Sea. Hydrocarbon seepage from tectonic or stratigraphic origin at the sea floor causes oily gas plumes to rise up to the sea surface. They form thin oil films on the sea surface called oil slicks. P...
An investigation of polymerflooding in limestone reservoirs with a bottom water zone
Bağcı, Ali Suat; Hodaie, H (Informa UK Limited, 2003-03-01)
The effects of polymers on waterflooding of a limestone reservoir with or without a bottom water zone, as well as the effect of vertical and horizontal production wells on oil recovery, have been investigated in laboratory models. Sixteen core flood displacement tests were conducted to study the effect of relative oil-water layer thickness, polymer slug size, and well configuration in a production port. A qualitative comparison was made to show the difference between waterflooding and polymer-augmented wate...
A study on the reactivity of various chars from Turkish fuels obtained at high heating rates
Magalhaes, Duarte; Riaza, Juan; Kazanç Özerinç, Feyza (Elsevier BV, 2019-03-01)
This work investigates the reactivity of chars produced from Turkish biomass and lignite fuels using a wire mesh reactor at high temperature and high heating rate. The fuels studied were olive residue, almond shell, and Soma lignite. Blends of Soma lignite-olive residue and Soma lignite-almond shell were prepared in proportions of 75:25 and 50:50 wt%, respectively. A wire mesh reactor is used for the pyrolysis of the samples in a controlled inert atmosphere at a uniform temperature of 1600 degrees C and at ...
An investigation of two-phase slug flow in inclined pipelines
Bağcı, Ali Suat (Informa UK Limited, 2004-06-01)
Two-phase slug flow in inclined pipelines can cause significant practical operating problems. When slugs flow in an inclined pipeline that contains sections of different inclinations, they undergo a change of length and slug flow characteristics as the slug moves from section to section. In addition, slugs can be generated at low elbows, dissipate at top elbows and shrink or grow in length as they travel along the pipe. A mathematical model and a computer program were developed to simulate these phenomena. ...
A stochastic approach in reserve estimation
Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Informa UK Limited, 2006-12-01)
Geostatistics and more especially stochastic modeling of reservoir heterogeneities are being increasingly considered by reservoir analysts and engineers for their potential in generating more accurate reservoir models together with usable measures of spatial uncertainty. Geostatistics provides a probabilistic framework and a toolbox for data analysis with an early integration of information. The uncertainty about the spatial distribution of critical reservoir parameters is modeled and transferred all the wa...
