User Manual
Material balance is an analytical tool that allows a quick identification of reservoir drive mechanisms and hydrocarbon volumes based on production and static pressure data through graphical methods (like Energy plot, Havlena-Odeh, P/Z vs cumulative production). The plugin also comprises a calibration process of reservoir input parameters to match measured reservoir pressure (history matching).
    Material Balance plugin supports:
  • gas and oil reservoirs with or without water influx
  • single tanks
  • black oil fluid model
  • following aquifers: Fetkovich, Van Evedingen and Hurst linear and radial, Allard and Chen (bottom water influx
  • specified or calculated rock compressibility
  • history matching for water influx gas tanks, gas influx gas tanks, volumetric oil tanks and water influx oil tanks
  • all units
    Main features:
  • Focused on History matching workflows
  • Diagnostics: Energy plot, Havlena Odeh plots, P/Z versus cumulative production plot
  • Determination of Fluids in Place
  • Identification of drive mechanisms in the reservoir
  • Aquifer characterization
  • Validation of static models by Material Balance calculations
