Inflow Performance Relationship (IPR) for Solution-Gas-Drive Reservoirs--Analytical Considerations Conference Paper uri icon


  • Abstract This work provides the analytical development of "Vogel"-type Inflow Performance Relation (or IPR) correlations for solution gas-drive reservoir systems using characteristic flow behavior. Specifically, we provide the following results:An analytical form of the quadratic (Vogel) IPR correlation:The analytical form for a cubic IPR correlation:The analytical form for a quartic IPR correlation: The practical value of this work is that we have proven that an IPR can be written for a given solution gas-drive reservoir system directly from rock-fluid properties and fluid properties.
