Estimation of water alternating gas (wag) injection performance of an offshore field (azeri field,azerbaijan) using a sector simulation model

Babayev, Farid
The WAG injection project feasibility of South Flank of Central Azeri field on the basis of simulation model was studied in this thesis work. The 58 sensitivity scenarios were considered to evaluate and analyze the behavior of WAG in this field. Scenarios are based on the important WAG parameters, such as half slug size volume, cycles, WAG ratio, start time, bottomhole injection pressure etc. The Base Case is set with static and dynamic characteristic close to real field. From the scenarios calculated, the Best (Scenario 53, 9.3% incremental oil) and the Worst (Scenario 52, 3.4% incremental oil) cases were analyzed to get general view of WAG in terms of profitability in comparison to the Base Case. For more profound conviction of feasibility of the WAG project, additional cases with Simultaneous WAG injection and cases with changed permeabilities have been considered. The Best case was re-evaluated under application of Carlson’s relative permeability hysteresis model. All results eventually were analyzed in terms of economical profitability net present value (NPV). Economical analysis of scenarios is provided at the end of the work.


Mass customizing the relations of design constraints for designer-built computational models
Ercan, Selen; Özkar, Mine; Department of Architecture (2010)
The starting motivation of this study is to develop an intuitively strong approach to addressing architectural design problems through computational models. Within the scope of the thesis, the complexity of an architectural design problem is modeled computationally by translating the design reasoning into parameters, constraints and the relations between these. Such a model can easily become deterministic and defy its purpose, if it is customized with pre-defined and unchangeable relations between the const...
Calculation of Detonation Properties of Gaseous Explosives Using Generalized Reduced Gradient Nonlinear Optimization
Ulaş, Abdullah (Wiley, 2011-08-01)
In this paper, a study on the development of a numerical modeling of the detonation of C-H-N-O-based gaseous explosives is presented. In accordance with the numerical model, a FORTRAN computer code named GasPX has been developed to compute both the detonation point and the detonation properties on the basis of Chapman-Jouguet (C-J) theory. The determination of the detonation properties in GasPX is performed in chemical equilibrium and steady-state conditions. GasPX has two improvements over other thermodyna...
Estimation of hydrologic parameters of Kocanaz watershed by a hydrologic model
Akay, Hüseyin; Baduna Koçyiğit, Müsteyde; Yanmaz, Ali Melih (2017-01-01)
The main goal of this study is to estimate the hydrologic parameters of Kocanaz watershed located in Western Black Sea Region, using a semi-distributed hydrologic model, Hydrologic Engineering Center – Hydrologic Modelling System (HEC-HMS). In this study, the hydrologic model was set up for two flood events occurred in 2002 and 2013, in which one was used for calibration while the other one was used for validation of the calibrated hydrologic parameters. The watershed was introduced into the model as a sing...
Creation of the commercial node : Söğütözü, Ankara
Barbaros, Yavuz Selim; Günay, Baykan; Urban Design in City and Regional Planning Department (2005)
The aim of the study is to discuss and determine the property relations, development patterns and major agents at Sögütözü region in Ankara, where is claimed to be new central business node, developing with ultimate architectural, constructional efforts and highly sophisticated land speculations. Rapid transformation in characteristic of Sögütözü region from agricultural use to commercial uses at twenty years does not only display contemporary space creation efforts, but also shows tendencies of private ent...
Implementation of turbulence models on 2d hybrid grids using an explicit/implicit multigrid algorithm
Yılmaz, Ali Emre; Tuncer, İsmail Hakkı; Department of Aerospace Engineering (2011)
In this thesis study, implementation, numerical stability and convergence rate issues of turbulence modeling are explored. For this purpose, a one equation turbulence model, Spalart-Allmaras, and a two-equation turbulence model, SST k-w, are adapted to an explicit, cell centered, finite volume method based, structured / hybrid multi grid flow solver, SENSE2D, developed at TUBITAK-SAGE. Governing equations for both the flow and the turbulence are solved in a loosely coupled manner, however, each set of equat...
