This volume is devoted to the study, verification and prediction of reservoir and well behaviour, and to methods of increasing productivity and oil recovery. The subjects covered are as follows: the study of immiscible displacement in one-dimensional systems by the method of characteristics, and in two-dimensional systems by the use of pseudo-functions: the reservoir engineering aspects of waterflooding: the simulation of reservoir behaviour using numerical modelling: the forecasting of well and reservoir performance through the use of decline curves and identified models: and, finally, the improvement of oil recovery and well productivitiy through advanced reservoir management techniques. One chapter is devoted to enhanced oil recovery (EOR) processes. Each topic is dealt with in a concise and rigorous manner, and the underlying mathematics is presented in an easily comprehensible fashion. Including the latest developments in the subjects covered, this book is ideal for students and professional engineers.
