Abstract

Parametric Study of Enhanced Condensate Recovery of Gas Condensate Reservoirs using Design of Experiment

Nkemakolam Izuwa and Basil C Ogbunude

Gas condensate reservoirs usually exhibit reduced well productivity because of condensate dropout that occurs below the dew point pressure. Gas recycling has become one of the most favorable methods of improving recovery of condensed liquid. However, understanding the influence of different injection and reservoir parameters on productivity is of great importance when planning a gas recycling scheme. Traditional methods of sensitization during reservoir simulation for gas condensate fields creates the challenge of quick identification of the most critical properties for sensitization, and hence delay of overall simulation project delivery. This work aims at identifying the key variables that influence productivity of a gas condensate reservoir under a gas recycling scheme using the design of experiment approach (DOE). DOE represents a more effective method for computer-enhanced, systematic approach to experimentation, considering all the factors simultaneously. Identification of these parameters will help simulators achieve best optimization targets and also save time and resources during dynamic simulation projects. Furthermore, it will be shown that experimental design can be used to fit responses (condensate/gas production) to mathematical models that will be able to predict outputs for any given combination of variables.
