Optimization of energy production from an underground gas storage reservoir

Sınayuç, Çağlar
Kucukeksi, MS
The aim of this study is to supply the variable gas demand from an underground gas storage reservoir during heating season by an optimal selection of production rates. Because of the interaction of many influences, parameters, and previous decisions, determination of production rates becomes so involved that the manager can no longer use intuitive judgment. The objective, therefore, is to reach an optimum decision by applying the linear programming method in problem optimization.


Simulation of depleted gas reservoir for underground gas storage
Öztürk, Bülent; Bağcı, Suat; Department of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering (2004)
For a natural gas importing country, أtake or payؤ approach creates problems since the demand for natural gas varies during the year and the excess amount of natural gas should be stored. In this study, an underground gas storage project is evaluated in a depleted gas Field M. After gathering all necessary reservoir, fluid, production and pressure data, the data were adapted to computer language, which was used in a commercial simulator software (IMEX) that is the CMG̕s (Computer Modelling Group) new genera...
Performance prediction of underground gas storage in salt caverns
Bagci, A. Suat; Ozturk, E. (Informa UK Limited, 2007-01-01)
Underground gas storage is a common activity in countries with major transport and distribution gas pipeline infrastructures, which allows to efficiently resolve demand seasonality problems. Subsurface caverns in salt formations are being increasingly used for storage of natural gas. In this study, a real salt cavern having the potential for being an underground gas storage unit was evaluated. A model of the salt cavern was constructed within the gas simulator established for the purposes of this study. The...
Prediction of Non-Darcy flow effects on fluid flow through porous media based on field data
Alp, Ersen; Akın, Serhat; Department of Chemical Engineering (2012)
The objective of this dissertation is to investigate the non-Darcy flow effects on field base data by considering gas viscosity, gas deviation factor and gas density as variables. To achieve it, different correlations from the literature and field data have been combined to Sawyer-Brown Method, thus a contribution has been achieved. Production history of selected gas field has been implemented to a numerical simulator. To find out non-Darcy effects quantitatively, Darcy flow conditions have also been run in...
Estimation of Polymer Re-Gel Injection Time in Natural Fractured Reservoirs
Longinos, Sotirios; Soltanieh, Ashkan; Akın, Serhat (2018-06-22)
Hydrocarbon production is usually restricted by excess water production in naturally fractured reservoirs. Polymergel injection is an efficient method to shut-off fracture conduits in water bearing zones. Efficiency of water shut-offmay decrease in time due to several reasons. Well diagnostic methods such as recovery plot, production history plotand decline curve analysis can be used to identify necessity to re-gel the well. Both of the surveillance methods requiresome sort of analytical modeling and may no...
State estimation of transient flow in gas pipelines by a Kalman filter-based estimator
Durgut, İsmail; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal (2016-09-01)
In this study, real-time estimation of flow rate and pressure along natural gas pipelines under transient flow condition is aimed. The estimation of the internal states of gas pipelines is based on a recursive discrete data filtering algorithm called the discrete Kalman filter. The state space representation of the transient flow in gas pipelines, which is required for the filtering algorithm, is established by a discrete form of the nonlinear partial differential equations (PDE's) describing the characteri...
