Flipboard Kelkar Committee to look at ways to raise oil, gas production India currently imports 80 per cent of its oil needs and about half of its natural gas requirement. India currently imports 80 per cent of its oil needs and about half of its natural gas requirement. Oil Minister M Veerappa Moily wants to cut down reliance on imports to half. Towards this objective, the ministry "constituted a Committee headed by Dr Vijay Kelkar to prepare a roadmap for enhancing domestic production of oil and gas and sustainable reduction in import dependency by ," an official statement said. The Committee has been asked to submit its report to the government within six months.

Quantification of geoscience and engineering problems underpins many of the applications of big data and artificial intelligence.

This book presents quantitative geosciences in three parts. Part 1 presents data analytics using probability, statistical and machine-learning methods. Part 2 covers reservoir characterization using several geoscience disciplines: including geology, geophysics, petrophysics and geostatistics.

Part 3 treats reservoir modeling, resource evaluation and uncertainty analysis using integrated geoscience, engineering and geostatistical methods. As the petroleum industry is heading towards operating oil fields digitally, a multidisciplinary skillset is a must for geoscientists who need to use data analytics to resolve inconsistencies in various sources of data, model reservoir properties, evaluate uncertainties, and quantify risk for decision making.

This book intends to serve as a bridge for advancing the multidisciplinary integration for digital fields. The goal is to move beyond using quantitative methods individually to an integrated descriptive-quantitative analysis. In big data, everything tells us something, but nothing tells us everything. This book emphasizes the integrated, multidisciplinary solutions for practical problems in resource evaluation and field development.

Gas Production Engineering - GPO

Reservoir performance covers the fundamentals of reservoir gas flow and details the best methods for testing wells, according to the time and money available. Reserve calculations and diagnostic testing from production data are covered. The importance of flow regime and non-Darcy flow on test design and interpretation is emphasized for new wells and for the possibility of improving the performance of older wells. Also discussed are performances of tight formations, horizontal wells, fractured wells, and methods for estimating gas reserves.

Every gas well will suffer from liquid loading problem as the rate from the well declines. Every gas well produces some produced water if not also condensate. At high gas flow rates, gas is able to entrain the liquid to the surface. However, that water or condensate cannot be carried to the surface at lower gas flow rates. Liquid loading results in premature abandonment of a gas well as the liquid accumulates at the bottom of the well creating significant backpressure. In the last 10 years, most of the gas well development has changed from primarily vertical wells to horizontal wells.
