Solutions for Well-Test-Analysis: Part 1 — Introductory Considerations Written by Anthony Jimenez1and Debora Martogi2, Edited by Debora Martogi Introduction As many would agree, the diffusivity equation is one of the most important equations for a reservoir engineer. This equation is derived from the following three principles: Conservation of mass (i.e., mass balance) Fundamental flow equation (i.e., "Darcy's Law") Equation of state (i.e., fluid compressibility relations) For a complete, comprehensive review of the aforementioned fundamental principles, readers are encouraged to review the Back to the Basics: The Liquid Diffusivity Equation article by Jimenez (link). To gain information regarding petroleum reservoirs (i.e., [...]

Python Series – Basic plotting and curve fitting

October 4th, 2020|Categories: Technical|Tags: |

Basic Gas MBE with Python Written and Edited by Debora Martogi One of the main approaches in estimating reserves as we produce hydrocarbons is to use the Material Balance Equation. The material balance equation (MBE) is simply a method to track the volumetric balance into, out, and stored (select cases) in the reservoir. The general MBE relates the initial pressure/ volume of hydrocarbons in the reservoir to total production volumes and current pressure conditions. There are several types of MBE depending on the types of fluid(s) in the reservoir (i.e., dry gas, wet gas, gas condensate, volatile oil, black oil) [...]

Python Series – Introduction

September 27th, 2020|Categories: Technical|

Python Introduction Written and Edited by Debora Martogi In today's digital transformation age, aka the "Industry 4.0", Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) are encouraged to adapt and learn new tools to help them analyze big data. And when we talk about big data, the first things that came into mind are usually Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). Though these tools can help us provide some correlation or predictions out of the data we provided, SMEs should still take caution in applying these tools. Without intelligent sound judgment, improper implementation of AI could lead to uneconomical decisions. This is why [...]

I greeted one of the check-in recruiters, who then asked me to fill out my information on the tablet. As I was filling out my information, I chatted with the recruiter, and they asked me a question about why I was interested in the company. I then provided a general answer about what petroleum companies do without specifying specifics of what the company does. The company specializes in chemicals, and the recruiter noticed that [...]
