CHAPTER 2

PATTERN RECOGNITION OF THE WATER PRODUCTION HISTORY

can be caused either by migration (water flow) behind the wells casing or through high

isolation by the cement sheath. Well logging methods have been used to detect water

flow. A cement squeeze has been a usual treatment applied to eliminate water migration.

contributing to high water rate. Fig. 2.1 shows water flowing through those layers or thief

zones. The technology of water shut-off, i.e. blocking the water supply layers with

polymers or resins treats this excessive water production problem. Recently, Downhole

water oil separation (DOWS) technology has been shown potential for reducing the

driven reservoirs underlain by strong aquifers. This physical phenomena is shown in Fig.

2.2. Recently, several new techniques have been developed for water coning control [9-

14]. The techniques utilize in-situ gravity separation of oil and water, and require

distinguishing water coning from channeling is critical for deciding whether shut-off or

DWS techniques should be used because each of them applies only to single mechanism

of water production.

The main objective of this chapter was to improve diagnosis of water problem by

providing physical meaning for the pattern recognition and to expand the method to cover

It has been sorted into two groups, the method of Chan for constant rate and the

new method which has been developed in this study for variable rate production history.

experiments with oil-water reservoir systems. To model both coning and channeling,

Chan used the same set of data. The only difference in the simulations was the geometry

of flow. For coning, a water/oil contact (WOC) was defined and a bottom water influx

was simulated by injection of water at the edge of the water layer. Only top 20% of the

oil zone was perforated to simulate coning. To model water channeling, Chan eliminated

column with the edge water supplied to all layers by a peripheral aquifer.

Chan observed that log-log plots of WOR versus time showed characteristic

trends for different water invasion mechanisms. Fig 2.3 shows the physical behavior

between coning and channeling. He proposed that derivatives of WOR (dWOR/dt) vs.

time could be used for determining whether the excessive water production is due to

coning or multilayer channeling; dWOR/dt shows nearly a constant positive slope for

channeling and a variable negative slope for coning. Two examples are displayed in Figs.

2.4-2.5 respectively.

Three main stages have been identified in water cone development: before water

conditions a stable water cone becomes a high conductivity channel. The WOR increase

is fast resembling that for the channeling case. For a strong bottom water drive, the well

spacing becomes a key factor for the occurrence of the water cone stabilization and

switching from coning to the channeling behavior. For example, a 10-20 acre well

spacing the transition from coning to channeling becomes indiscernible. The bottom

water channels up vertically to the oil perforations. The larger the well spacing, the

The diagnostic plot method was successfully verified with field data for constant

production rates. However, in most field cases production rates vary, data points are

scattered, and it is almost impossible to recognize the slope of the derivative trends.

Another limitation is that this method has not been supported by any theory, just series of

numerical experiments.

This new method begins with a procedure of smoothing the scattered WOR

derivative data. It can be noticed that the cumulative water produced, Wp, is a power-

functional relation with cumulative oil production, Np. A derivative of this function

versus Np yields a smooth function of WOR that can be later differentiated with respect

to time.

For any period of time, cumulative oil and water productions are defined as

follows:

t

Integration of Eq. 2.7, gives cumulative water production that is a power function

function of WOR that can be later differentiated with respect to time. This approach

eliminates scattering behavior of the WOR derivative and allows easy recognition of the

plot pattern.

Following procedure is proposed to distinguish water coning from channeling:

2. Using curve-fitting procedure, find a power law equation for Wp as a function of Np.

Oil production at breakthrough can also be estimated at this step. Its value can be

calculated from formula, that gives the highest value of the correlation coefficient, R2.

Use of the pattern recognition method is illustrated using a published production

history for a reservoir with water coning [8], as shown in Table 2.1. Even though, the

simulated data did not require smoothing, all the steps of the proposed algorithm has been

Since the value of the above formula is smaller than one, the WOR derivative will

Also consistent with the theory are the close values of exponents n = 0.3712 and

m = 0.3384, which should be expected for the case of constant production rate.

first well is from La Victoria oil field in Southwestern Venezuela. Strong water drive in

the reservoir results in early water breakthrough and, thus, low oil rates in all the

producing wells. The water-production history of a typical well is shown in Fig. 2.8.

WOR derivative, as shown in Fig. 2.9. It is almost impossible to decide on the direction

of the trend-line for these points. Thus the conventional method becomes inconclusive

The new method was used to analyze data from the same well. The resulting plots

are shown in Figs. 2.10-2.11. Shown in Fig. 2.11 is the plot of WOR vs. time curve-fitted

with a straight line. The exponent, m, of the WOR line is equal to 2.14. Since the value is

greater than one, the cause of water production for this well is channeling.

This example clearly demonstrates the fact that the method of smoothing the field

The second field example is a well from Nigeria. Using the well production

history, one can try to determine the cause of the water production, with Chans method

directly. Fig. 2.12 shows the calculated values of WOR and d(WOR)/dt required for the

pattern recognition technique. As can be seen, the shape of the WOR pattern suggests the

water coning problem. Also, points of the d(WOR)/dt plot are too scattered to make any

conclusions.

A smoothing procedure based upon the correlation between cumulative water and

oil productions was used for the same data, as shown in Fig. 2.13, and yielded the

By re-plotting the calculated WOR vs. time instead of cumulative oil production,

its possible to get the value of the exponent m equal to 0.452. Since the exponent is

smaller than unity, the derivative of the WOR declines in time. This decline means that

the well in Nigeria had a water coning problem. Fig. 2.14 shows the plots of WOR and
