Al-Rbeawi, Salam
The objective of this paper is focusing deep insights on stabilized productivity index (PI) and transient pressure behaviors and flow regimes of multilateral wells. It introduces an integrated approach for the performance of reservoirs depleted by multilateral wells extending in arbitrary trajectories. The study introduces new practical solutions for estimating stabilized pseudo-steady state (PSS) productivity index and starting time of PSS as well as transient PI behavior of multilateral wells in single and dual porous media with laterally and spatially anisotropic characteristics.

Fishbone type horizontal wellbore completion: A study for pressure behavior, flow regimes, and productivity index
Al-Rbeawi, Salam; Artun, Emre (2019-05-01)
This paper focuses on studying pressure behavior, flow regimes, and productivity index of oil and gas reservoirs depleted by horizontal wells with a fishbone type completion technology. The main objective is introducing an integrated approach for the favorable configuration and distribution of multilateral horizontal wells extending in porous media at arbitrary directions and arbitrary permeability trajectories. The study aims to demonstrate the advantages and disadvantages of fishbone completion in terms o...
Bivariate Log-Normal Distribution of Stimulated Matrix Permeability and Block Size in Fractured Reservoirs: Proposing New Multilinear-Flow Regime for Transient-State Production
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (2018-08-01)
This paper investigates the impacts of varied stimulated matrix permeability and matrix-block size on pressure behaviors and flow regimes of hydraulically fractured reservoirs using bivariate log-normal distribution. The main objective is assembling the variance in these two parameters to the analytical models of pressure and pressure derivative considering different porous-media petrophysical properties, reservoir configurations, and hydraulic-fracture (HF) characteristics. The motivation is eliminating th...
An experimental study on off-design performance and noise in small pumps
Şahin, Fatma Ceyhun; Eralp, O. Cahit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
This thesis study is focused on experimentally investigating pump noise at design and off-design operations and its relations with pressure fluctuations. Small size pumps are placed in a semi-anechoic chamber and operated at various system conditions and various rotational pump speeds. Pump operational data, noise data and time dependent pressure data are recorded. Fast Fourier Transform spectra of noise and pressure data are compared. Coherence spectrum between sound pressure level and hydraulic pressures ...
Integrated analysis of pressure response using pressure-rate convolution and deconvolution techniques for varied flow rate production in fractured formations
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (Elsevier BV, 2018-03-01)
This paper introduces an integrated analysis for pressure transient behavior of conventional and unconventional multi-porous media reservoirs considering varied flow rate conditions. It focuses on the applications of pressure-rate convolution and deconvolution techniques for analyzing pressure records of homogenous single porous media, double porous media, and triple porous media reservoirs. The tasks covered in this paper are: Deconvloving pressure response, characterizing and developing analytical models ...
Integrated deterministic approaches for productivity index of reservoirs depleted by horizontal wells and undergone multiphase flow conditions
Al-Rbeawi, Salam (Elsevier BV, 2019-04-01)
This paper introduces new integrated approaches for estimating pseudo-steady state productivity index (PI) and shape factor of oil and gas reservoirs drained by horizontal wells and dominated by multiphase flow conditions. These approaches couple PVT data, relative permeability curves, and pressure distribution models during pseudo-steady state flow (PSS). The objective is eliminating the uncertainties of applying single phase flow models and substantially comprising the realistic parameters that govern mul...
