Fekete Engineering Software & Services - reservoir

By: Fekete  09-12-2011

Fekete provides an integrated team of reservoir engineers, geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, production engineers, simulation engineers and computer specialists for detailed reservoir studies. The results combine all aspects of static and dynamic modeling into a comprehensive reservoir model that yields additional reserves and successful drilling locations. A sample of past projects include waterflood design and optimization, EOR optimization, oil material balance, infill drilling and pool depletion strategies, low permeability gas deliverability studies, gas cap blowdown studies, gas storage, water disposal and acid gas disposal.


Our completed project list includes:

  • Waterflood design & optimization
  • Tertiary EOR schemes
  • Oil material balance
  • Infill drilling and pool depletion strategies
  • Low permeability gas deliverability studies
  • Gas cap blowdown studies
  • Gas storage
  • Water disposal
  • Acid Gas disposal

Reservoir Simulation

Simulation is a powerful tool for understanding reservoir fluid migration. In order to meet the client’s specific objectives, Fekete ensures that the simulation process is carefully thought out in terms of the data and the ability to construct a thorough, representative model. All simulation projects commence with a detailed review of data quality and scoping analysis of data uncertainty on simulation results.

Preparation of the dynamic pressure and production data involves a screening process that uses practical oilfield experience. For example, completion reports are diligently reviewed for frac effectiveness, perforation timing, injector/producer pair behaviour, and more. The results are fed back to the static model description to fine-tune fault seal analysis or undetected stratigraphic barriers.

Simulation proceeds only after the scoping analysis determines that the integrated reservoir characterization model is representative of the reservoir and that it will generate trustworthy results, and that it is economically justified. After history matching, multiple realizations are run to investigate the full range of possible outcomes. The results of past studies have yielded additional reserves and successful drilling locations.

Other products and services from Fekete


Fekete Engineering Software & Services - cbmstudies

In the past few years, Fekete has been involved in numerous projects such as industry funded initiatives to study shale gas, green field development, and engineering reports to determine a CBM-specific development strategy. Other typical projects include the reserve estimation of tight gas, production forecasting of CBM and shale gas reservoirs, reservoir evaluation, and production optimization of existing CBM wells.


Fekete Engineering Software & Services - geology

The strength of our expertise is the interdisciplinary co-operation between Fekete’s geological, petrophysical, geophysical and reservoir engineering staff and the integration of their results to arrive at a practical and technically rigorous reservoir interpretation. Gross and net pay analyses and the areal extent of reservoirs are determined through detailed correlations of hydrocarbon zones and surrounding strata.


Fekete Engineering Software & Services - pipeline

From multiple zone/multiple pressured systems in Alberta, coalbed methane systems in Wyoming, high pressure gas in Pakistan, to tight gas in Australia our engineers have accumulated a vast range of experience and valuable insight. Piper™ software, Fekete’s engineers are able to build a model of a gas gathering system that includes the surface gathering system, wellbores, and reservoirs.


Fekete Engineering Software & Services - production

Specifically, the process includes petrophysical evaluation of bypassed pay including offset analogies and recommended perforation intervals, testing programming, remedial workover programming for under-performing wells, assessment of optimal well spacing, abandonment liabilities and project economics.


Fekete Engineering Software & Services - reserves

The full spectrum of Fekete’s software and expertise is applied to truly understand your reservoirs, to more accurately model and forecast production, and to provide reserves estimates with confidence. We then use our considerable in-house experience and specialized expertise, such as rate-transient analysis, pioneered by Fekete. We prepare professional NI 51-101 and SEC compliant reserve reports for Canadian and United States regulators.
