1. A pressure drawdown test was conducted on the discovery well in a new reservoir to estimate
the drainage volume of the reservoir. The well was flowed at a constant rate of 125 STB/day.
The bottom-hole pressure data, as well as other rock and fluid property data, follow. What
are the drainage volume of the well and the average permeability of the drainage volume?
And what is the skin factor? The initial reservoir pressure was 3900 psia.

Using @=1 for computing the skin factor, we have:

First, we need to calculated the total compressibility factor.

= 0.8(10 106 1 ) + 0.2(3 106 1 ) + 4 106 1 = 12.6 106 1
Then,

In order to find the well drainage area, we need to know when the wellbore production feel the
effect of the boundary.
For the plot above, = 30.

Now, we need to plot the pseudo-steady state in a Cartesian plot.

The slope of the plot above is = 0.38 .

The well drainage area is,

2. The first oil well in a new reservoir was flowed at a constant flow rate of 195 STB/day until
a cumulative volume of 361 STB had been produced. After this production period, the well
was shut in and the bottom-hole pressure monitored for several hours. The flowing pressure
just as the well was being shut in was 1790 psia. For the data that follow, calculate the
formation permeability, skin factor and the initial reservoir pressure.

First, we need to know the total production time.
