Fractured Carbonate Gas Condensate Field

Fractured Carbonate Gas Condensate Field

Evaluation of this naturally fractured reservoir required the use of a dual porosity/permeability simulation model. The composition of the gas condensate fluid was characterized with eight pseudo-components using the Peng-Robinson Equation of State Model. Several field development options – including gas cycling and blowdown – were investigated. Under the gas cycling development scenario, the orientation of the fracture network was carefully study since it was crucial to recovery. The results were compared to a single porosity anisotropic model to assess gas breakthrough times and ultimate recovery predictions.
