Evaluation of Reserves for a Number of Small, Partially Shut-In Gas Fields in Northern Tennessee Conference Paper uri icon


  • This paper presents analysis techniques for post-transient gas flow at a constant flowing bottomhole pressure. These techniques were applied to a field study of two small, low productivity gas reservoirs in Northern Tennessee. The production data for this field study was analyzed using decline curve analysis. The decline curve analysis results were then interpreted using an analytic reservoir model. This analysis was verified by a simulated real gas example. The overall objective of the field study was to find correlations of reservoir parameters to measured production data. Several rate-reserve, rate-permeability/porosity-area, and rate-permeability-thickness correlations were obtained from the results of the decline curve analysis.
