Multiphase Fluid Flow in Porous and Fractured Reservoirs by Yu-Shu Wu

By Yu-Shu Wu

Multiphase Fluid circulate in Porous and Fractured Reservoirs discusses the method of modeling fluid move in petroleum and normal fuel reservoirs, a tradition that has develop into more and more complicated due to a number of fractures in horizontal drilling and the invention of extra unconventional reservoirs and assets.

The booklet updates the reservoir engineer of this day with the newest advancements in reservoir simulation via combining a powerhouse of concept, analytical, and numerical how you can create improved verification and validation modeling equipment, finally bettering restoration in stagnant and complicated reservoirs.

Going past the traditional issues in prior literature, insurance comprises good remedy, Non-Newtonian fluids and rheological types, multiphase fluid coupled with geomechanics in reservoirs, and modeling purposes for unconventional petroleum assets. The ebook equips today’s reservoir engineer and modeler with the main appropriate instruments and data to set up and solidify greater oil and fuel restoration.

  • Delivers updates on contemporary advancements in reservoir simulation reminiscent of modeling methods for multiphase circulation simulation of fractured media and unconventional reservoirs
  • Explains analytical strategies and techniques in addition to purposes to modeling verification for today’s reservoir difficulties, similar to comparing saturation and strain profiles and restoration elements or displacement efficiency
  • Utilize sensible codes and courses featured from on-line better half website
