Course description:
This course mainly focuses on the tests of oil and gas wells individually. The first section studies in details types of oil well tests at the stable and instable mode in addition to mathematical applications about these tests, while the second section studies tests of gas wells at the stable mode with an explanation of the mathematical equations used for these calculations as well as explanation of the graphical results. For the tests of gas wells at the instable mode, several methods were discussed in this section including time-equality test, successive flow, and other methods. The last section is dedicated for studying contamination of oil wells and criteria used to determine contamination degree in addition to the relevant mathematic applications.
Targets of the course:
1. Let the students acquire knowledge about principle of well test and how these tests are carried out at field;
2. Enabling students to comprehend and mathematically analyze results of well tests and present/visualize the data graphically;
3. Training students on solving mathematical problems relevant to the aforementioned tests as well as scientific interpretation of these results accurately;
4. Getting the students acquainted with the mathematical criteria used to determine the contaminated zone (the skin effect) adjacent to the wellbore.
