Publication Made

Improved Recovery Alternatives for the Alamo SW Field: A Tight Fluvial-Deltaic Sandstone Reservoir. (Oklahoma Geological Survey Circular 98, 1996). In the Alamo field two productive zones have been identified. The two zones are separated by a shale interval 5-10 feet in thickness. For the simulation study the geologic model was represented by an E-W oriented grid. The grid consisted of 322 active blocks, each of which was 330 feet square. The thickness of each block was equal to the average net zone thickness for that square. Each zone was modeled separately assuming that the shale bed prevented flow between the upper and lower zones. An average water saturation of 26% was used for all blocks. Simulation results are based on assuming a normal hydrostatic gradient with an initial reservoir pressure of 2700 Psi.
