Abstract

"Three computer analyses of oil production by depletion drive have been developed. These analyses, Tarner's method of depletion drive oil production prediction, depletion drive performance productions of Schilthuis, and depletion drive calculations by a finite difference material balance, have been programmed for computers having Fortran IV compilers and a minimum of 40 K bytes of core storage capacity. Modifications have been incorporated in the last two techniques for (a) constant volume injection of produced gas, (b) the presence of a gas cap, (c) gas-cap injection of produced gas volumes, (d) varying water encroachment and production, and/or, (e) varying sweep efficiencies and productivity indices, subject to specific restrictions and constraints"--Abstract, page ii.
