 Course Name Turkish Gözenekli Ortamda Akış English Flow Through Porous Media Course Code PET 417E Credit Lecture (hour/week) Recitation (hour/week) Laboratory (hour/week) Semester 6 3 3 - - Course Language English Course Coordinator Hasan Özgür Yıldız Course Objectives 1. To acquaint the students with the concepts, equations, analysis methods and tools used in reservoir engineering 2. Develop students’ ability to apply a quantitative reasoning to reservoir engineering problems, 3. Develop students’ ability to apply an integrated knowledge of math, physics, geosciences and engineering sciences to the solution of reservoir engineering problems. Course Description Derivation of the continuity equation and the diffusion equation for single phase flow in the reservoir. Introduction to the concepts of heterogeneity and anisotropy. Steady state, pseudo steady state and unsteady state flow regimes. Definition of productivity index of wells for various well geometries and fluid types during single phase flow. Introduction to two phase flow. Definition of mobility and mobility ratio. The fractional flow curve. The displacement process in porous media and the Buckley-Leverett Equation. Course Outcomes Students who pass the course will be able to: 1. Formulate mathematical models representing flow of single phase fluids in porous media 2. Describe the various flow regimes observed in the reservoir 3. Describe the effects of rock and fluid properties on the flow of fluids in porous media 4. Obtain the solutions to the diffusion equation for various different boundary conditions 5. Describe oil-water flow in the reservoir Pre-requisite(s) PET 211E MIN DD and PET 212E MIN DD Required Facilities The computer usage is encouraged in homework assignments and presentations that require usage of graphic softwares and wordprocessors.
