A core, 2.5 cm long and 2.5 cm in diameter has a porosity of 28%. It is saturated with oil and water, where
the oil content is 1.5 cm3
i
Calculate the pore volume of the core
ii
Calculate the oil and water saturation of the core

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------2

A reservoir is available with the following specifications, calculate the volume of oil, gas and water .
Vb= 10 ac-ft
= 15%
Sw = 25%
So = 60%
1 ac = 43560 ft2

1bbl = 5.615 ft3

1 ac-ft = 43560 ft3

1bbl = 159 liters

1bbl = 42 gallon

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------3

Calculate the pressure difference, i.e., capillary pressure, and capillary rise in an oil-water system from the
following data:
= 30o

= 1.0 gm/cm3

= 0.75 gm/cm3

r = 10-4 cm

ow

= 25 dynes/cm

A laboratory capillary pressure test was conducted on core sample taken from Carlos Field. The porosity of
the core is 16% and the permeability is 80 mD. The water density is 64 lb/ft 3 and the oil density is 45 lb/ft 3.
The capillary pressure saturation data are given in TABLE Q4.

Calculate the capillary pressure rise for each water saturation. Tabulate the result from your
calculation. Plot the graph of h vs Sw. Indicate the free water level (FWL), oil water contact

ii

(OWC) and transition zone on the plot.


Explain relationship between capillary pressure and free water level (FWL).
