(electronic format) Basis for Grade: Homework/Projects 90% Class Participation 10% total = 100% Grade Cutoffs: (Percentages) A: < 90 B: 89.99 to 80 C: 79.99 to 70 D: 69.99 to 60 F: < 59.99 Policies and Procedures: 1. Students are expected to attend class every session. 2. Policy on Grading a. It shall be the general policy for this course that homework, quizzes, and exams shall be graded on the basis of answers only — partial credit, if given, is given solely at the discretion of the instructor. b. All work requiring calculations shall be properly and completely documented for credit. c. All grading shall be done by the instructor, or under his direction and supervision, and the decision of the instructor is final. 3. Policy on Regrading a. Only in very rare cases will exams be considered for regrading; e.g., when the total number of points deducted is not consistent with the assigned grade. Partial credit (if any) is not subject to appeal. b. Work which, while possibly correct, but cannot be followed, will be considered incorrect — and will not be considered for a grade change. c. Grades assigned to homework problems will not be considered for regrading. d. If regrading is necessary, the student is to submit a letter to the instructor explaining the situation that requires consideration for regrading, the material to be regraded must be attached to this letter. The letter and attached material must be received within one week from the date returned by the instructor. 4. The grade for a late assignment is zero. Homework will be considered late if it is not turned in at the start of class on the due date. If a student comes to class after homework has been turned in and after class has begun, the student's homework will be considered late and given a grade of zero. Late or not, all assignments must be turned in. A course grade of Incomplete will be given if any assignment is missing, and this grade will be changed only after all required work has been submitted. 5. Each student should review the University Regulations concerning attendance, grades, and scholastic dishonesty. In particular, anyone caught cheating on an examination or collaborating on an assignment where collaboration is not specifically allowed will be removed from the class roster and given an F (failure grade) in the course. Petroleum Engineering 613 — Natural Gas Engineering Course Description, Prerequisites by Topic, and Course Objectives Spring 2005 Course Description Graduate Catalog: Flow of natural gas in reservoirs and in wellbores and gathering systems; deliverability testing; production forecasting and decline curves; flow measurement and compressor sizing. Translation: From the reservoir through the sales line—we will try to study every aspect of natural gas systems. PVT properties, flow in porous media, flow in pipes and thermodynamic properties will be studied. We will use the Lee and Wattenbarger and the ERCB texts as guides — as well as numerous technical papers that go into much more depth of detail for a particular problem. We will focus on well testing, deliverability analysis, and decline curve analysis, as well as wellbore flow phenomena. Prerequisites by Topic: Differential and integral calculus, Ordinary and partial differential equations, Thermodynamics, Fluid dynamics and heat transfer, Reservoir fluid properties, and Reservoir petrophysics. Course Objectives The student should be able to: Estimate oil, gas, and water properties pertinent for well test or production data analysis using industry accepted correlations and laboratory data. Sketch pressure versus time trends and pressure versus distance trends for a reservoir system exhibiting transient, pseudosteadystate, and steadystate flow behavior. Derive the steadystate and pseudosteadystate relations for gas flow (including rigorous and semianalytical relations for boundarydominated flow behavior). In addition, the student must be able to derive, in complete detail, the pressure, pressuresquared, and pseudopressure forms of the diffusivity equation for a real gas. Derive the material balance equations for a volumetric dry gas reservoir, an "abnormallypressured" gas reservoir, and a waterdrive gas reservoir. The student should also be familiar with the generalized (i.e., compositional form) of the material balance equation for a gas condensate reservoir. Derive and apply the conventional relations used to calculate the static and flowing bottomhole pressures for the case of a dry gas. The student should also be familiar with proposed techniques for wet gases. Derive/present models for wellbore storage and phase redistribution (gas systems). Derive the "skin factor" variable from the steadystate flow equation and be able to describe the conditions of damage and stimulation using this skin factor. The student should also be familiar with models for "variable" skin effects due to nonDarcy flow, well cleanup, and gas condensate banking (radial composite model). Analyze and interpret flowafterflow (4point) and isochronal flow tests. Derive the analysis and interpretation methodologies (i.e., "conventional" plots and type curve analysis) for pressure drawdown and pressure buildup tests (liquid or gas reservoir systems). Also, be able to apply dimensionless solutions ("type curves") and field variable solutions ("specialized plots") for the analysis and interpretation of well test data. Design and implement a well test sequence, as well as a longterm production/injection surveillance program. This includes the design of single and multipoint deliverability tests. Analyze production data (ratetime or pressureratetime data) to obtain reservoir volume and estimates of reservoir properties for gas and liquid reservoir systems. The student should be able to use "decline curves," "decline type curves," and other techniques of analysis for production data. The student should be familiar with the reservoir engineering tools used to analyze/interpret the performance of the following gas reservoir types: — Gas condensate reservoir systems — Low permeability/unconventional reservoirs — Low pressure gas reservoirs Petroleum Engineering 613 — Natural Gas Engineering Course Description, Prerequisites by Topic, and Course Objectives Spring 2005 (Spring Break: 1418 March 2005)

Formulas and Definitions of Symbols (Including Units) D. Calculations (Including Units) 4. Results 5. Conclusions: Provide a short summary that discusses the problem results. Instructor Responsibilities The instructor is responsible for 1. A learning environment where students of all skills levels are appropriately challenged. 2. Showing respect and consideration to the students. 3. Being prepared for class and keeping on schedule with the syllabus. 4. Preparing exercises that follow the course objectives. 5. Covering the material that will be tested on exams. The instructor is not responsible for 1. Work missed by absent students (unless a Universityexcused absence is provided to the instructor). 2. Poor performance by unattentative or uninterested students. This is a fundamental course in Reservoir Engineering, one that you will use actively in your career as a reservoir or production engineer. 3. Personal issues — if you have personal issues that impair your performance in this course, you are encouraged to discuss these problems with your instructor for possible remedies. However, the instructor is responsible for assigning your grade based solely on your performance and is not at liberty to allow personal appeals to influence your grade. Student Responsibilities The student is responsible for 1. Class attendance. Students should attend all scheduled class meetings. 2. Being prepared for class. Inclass quizzes will be given. Always bring your books, course notes, and calculator to each class meeting. 3. Being prepared for exams. The instructor or TA may choose to review materials prior to exams, but do not rely on this review as your only exam preparation—nor should you rely on old exams for your exam preparation. The best preparation for exams is to stay current with the class, rework assignments, and get plenty of rest the night before the exam. 4. Showing respect and consideration to his classmates and the instructor. Do not talk excessively with your neighbors during class. Do not take up class time for discussions with the instructor that should be held outside of class. Students who disrupt the class will be asked to leave.
