Wellbore stability problems make up huge over-costs worldwide. Since in recent years declining resource volumes and favorable oil prices are encouraging operators to drill deeper, more complex well trajectories drilling for hydrocarbons have turn into a much more challenging task. Furthermore, the complexity and variations of those wells have added the weight to planning and problem anticipation at both drilling and production stages. The thesis will describe the geomechanical wellbore stability analysis of Sayındere, Karaboğaz and Karababa formations drilled in X field, Adıyaman. The analysis assumes validity of linear elastic theory for porous media and requires drilling reports, well logs, laboratory tests and core analysis. It was observed that with the assessment of geomechanical wellbore stability analysis mud weight window, which includes minimum mud weight and maximum mud weight can be determined for the studied formations.

Smart water displacement an alternative enhanced oil recovery technique
Polat, Can; Parlaktuna, Mahmut; Saner, Salih; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2015)
The aim of this study is to investigate the effect of smart water displacement on oil recovery. The brine samples were prepared considering the characteristics of the samples proved to be effective in oil recovery. The effect of these brine samples on rock wettability was observed using Modified Flotation Test (MFT) procedure. The effect of changing brine salinity on interfacial tension between brine and oil samples was observed using interfacial tension meter and ring tensiometer. Liquids used in spontaneo...
Random walk particle modelling of polymer injection using matlab reservoir simulation toolbox
Mamak, Gökhan; Durgut, İsmail; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2017)
Enhanced oil recovery (EOR) is essential to increase the maximum recoverable oil by natural means of production. Having chosen an EOR method, the effectiveness of the method should be analyzed before applying to a reservoir since the methods are generally costly. Polymer injection is a chemical EOR process, where the injected polymer with water increases the water viscosity, and help increasing the sweep efficiency in the reservoir. In order to model the effects of polymer injection, the random-walk particl...
Prediction of dog-leg severity by using artificial neural network
Kaymak, Sinem; Parlaktuna, Mahmut; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2019)
As technology growth, complexity of the drilling wells has been increasing. Directional wells have been drilling in order to deviate the well through planned targets which are at distant location from wellhead. One of the most important preliminary studies before drilling of any directional well is the prediction of Dog-leg severity. High and inconsistent Dog-leg severities can lead to high tortuosity, which may bring in high bottom torque, downhole tool failures, stuck pipe, target miss, inabilities to run...
An Experimental study of enhanced oil recovery application in limestone medium using NaOH solutions
Ay, Cansu; Sınayuç, Çağlar; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2014)
An interest in enhanced oil recovery is increasing due to rising oil prices, rising energy consumption and insufficient oil production from conventional techniques. As an EOR technique, alkaline injection is widely used to recover the trapped oil in pore spaces. In this study,the use of sodium hydroxide (NaOH) solutions as an enhanced oil recovery technique for limestone formations in South East Turkey was investigated. Routine core analyses (porosity, permeability and grain density) and spontaneous imbibit...
