Title: Coupled Rock/Fluid Mechanics Numerical Simulations Applied To Well Completions Final Report CRADA No. TC-1112-95

Abstract

A substantial fraction (-10%) of oil found by drilling bore holes is not recovered with present techniques. The purpose of this project was to develop a computational predictive capability to make the recovery of oil from bore holes more efficient. This project worked to develop a comprehensive modeling capability to explore perforation processes and their effects with applications to realistic three dimensional completion geometries. The project addressed the near well bore completion for soft rock and unconsolidated formations as well as those for stronger but less permeable formations of interest.
