Comparative Study on Inflow Performance Model of Short Horizontal Wells
High yields and higher efficiency can be acquired by using horizontal well as it has a lager contact area reservoir. So the horizontal well has become a better choice to gas fields all over the world, especially to low permeability oil fields in the world. There are several inflow performance models for horizontal wells. This paper studies several horizontal well models currently widely used in the word through an example of Chinese oil field. These include steady state model of Giger model, Joshi model and Renard and Dupuy model. And pseudo steady model of Babu and Odeh model. The results show that Giger model give greater production rate from our procedure and calculation.
