    Abstract: H gas reservoir is an overpressured gas reservoir with high temperature. It is generally believed that overpressured gas reservoir exist stress sensitivity effect due to uncompaction. Firstly, this study conducted lab core test to analysis stress sensitivity of rock by defined confining pressure and decreasing inner pressure. Test results show that... Show More

    Abstract: The paramount aim of every oil and gas operator is to minimize both capital and operating costs and more importantly, maximize cumulative oil production in the most cost-effective manner for the entire field. This is to say that a true production optimization requires an operator to take a logical look at the field’s production systems from the sub... Show More
