    Impact of Stress on Permeability of Packed Hydraulic Fracture

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Taherzadeh, Dadbeh (Author) ; Shad, Saeed (Supervisor) ; Fatemi, Mobeen ($item.subfieldsMap.e)
    Given the broad role of oil and gas playing in the world economy, finding the hydrocarbon reservoir that economically is affordable is quite significant. Some of the unconventional oil and gas reservoirs are important from the economic point of view since they produce insufficient hydrocarbon due to either low permeability or damage during drilling and production. Hydraulic fracturing is one of the most significant methods for improving the productivity of wells and reservoirs. Hydraulic fracturing acts by affecting on reservoir rock physic. In the current century, this approach has an essential effect in enhancing the permeability and production of reservoirs by creating, extending and... 

    Simulation Study of Inflow Control Device

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Jokar, Mohammad Javad (Author) ; Shad, Saeed (Supervisor)
    Optimizing and improving the design of wells will have significant impact on any recovery method. As for horizontal wells, despite the fact that horizontal wells improve reservoir access, they suffer from significant pressure loss as well as limited flow control locations and flow control and management. In addition, reservoir quality varies along the length of the well and in the reservoir. This will add further complexity and challenge in well control and production optimization. The design of completions plays a significant role in improving the productivity of a well as well as the life of the reservoir. Intelligent or smart completions can be used to monitor, evaluate and manage the...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Rostamian, Aref (Author) ; Bazargan, Mohammad (Supervisor) ; Jamshidi, Saeed (Supervisor)
    An important step in the early stages of an oilfield development is the accurate identification of the location of production and injection wells which has a significant impact on productivity and profitability of the reservoir. Recently, operation companies in petroleum industry focus on production optimization, recovery enhancement and cost reduction; as a result, application of non-conventional wells (NCW) or non-vertical wells have dramatically increased. Well placement optimization is a complicated task as it is a function of several contributing factors including reservoir heterogeneities and economic constraints.

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Mahdipoor, Morteza (Author) ; Shad, Saeed (Supervisor)
    In oil industry, increment of drilling mud viscosity is of great importance. Water based polymers are widely use as drilling fluid to achieve this goal. Formation damages can be occurred by invading polymer solution into the formation in different ways such as scale and precipitation. These damages appear in different shapes such as reduction in relative permeability and productivity index reduction. In this study we have proposed, designed and fabricated a novel device, called sand pack, to measure the damage of the reservoir which enable us to calculate relative permeability and recovery factor by means of pressure difference and flow rate.

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Farohi, Mohammad Reza (Author) ; Ramezani Saadat Abadi, Ahmad (Supervisor) ; Jamshidi, Saeed (Supervisor)
    Constant drilling in the shale formation causes many problems such as shale swelling and well instability. Annually many costs are spent dealing with these problems in the drilling industry. Many factors can affect this issue. The most important factor is the type of drilling fluid and its additives. The use of oil-based mud is the best option to deal with the clays instability but, due to environmental problems resulting from OBM, their use has been banned in most parts of the world. Therefore, the water-based mud is the only option for the oil industry that can modify its property by use of additives. In this study, the muds contain Nano silica have been introduced.

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Soleimaninasab, Alireza (Author) ; Jamshidi, Saeed (Supervisor)
    One of the three fundamental methods in reservoir evaluation is coring, other two methods are logging and well test. Coring is an operation during which, samples from formation rock are taken, and used for laboratory tests and examinations. Although coring presents exact information from reservoir rock, its small scale is the reason of some laboratory errors. This operation is fulfilled with special bits. Coring importance shines where it could give us an idea of reservoir conditions; however cannot be develop it, to all of the reservoir. Coring is used to identify rock properties like porosity, permeability, wettability and fluid properties like fluid density or fluid saturation. Rock...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Davoodi, Shadfar (Author) ; Ramazani, Ahmad (Supervisor) ; Jamshidi, Saeed (Supervisor)
    Given that the mean of the cost of drilling operation related to the required martials and preparation of the drilling fluids, therefore, the design and construction drilling fluid which omit has to be a proper rheology is essential in drilling operations and oil industry. A desirable property of the drilling fluid is the minimum fluid loss volume which can be achieved by formation of a low permeability filter cake on the wellbore. Drilling fluid filtrating invasion into the formation can cause formation damage and reduction in the productivity of the well.

    Today due to increasing demand of using energy and petroleum products, finding optimum ways to produce more oil and gas in a way which petroleum reservoirs faces less pressure drop is very necessary. Therefore, petroleum engineers face multiphase flow proportionally more than other issues. So, they have to comprehend this issue in a complete manner in order to discover the best practical ways for maximum utilization. Researchers in different ways tried to model multiphase flow, but many of provided models are so complicated and sometimes have low accuracy.

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Pornouri, Pouria (Author) ; Jamshidi, Saeed (Supervisor)
    Alavand Oil field is located 50 Km away from west of Siri Island and includes DPG and DPH platforms. The production from Alavand field started in 1998 and till now 11 wells have been totally drilled .Since a production peak in 2001, the oil production in Alvand field has decreased. Water cut is increasing and reservoir pressure is decreasing gradually. Considering poor reservoir characteristic of this reservoir, productivity indexes of wells are relatively low. In addition; natural depletion of reservoir caused the wells to be unable to flow naturally and either closed or produce periodically consequently. To increase production and extend the lifetime of Alvand field, it is decided to start...

Ineffective particles transport leads to several undesirable issues during drilling. This thesis analyzed all parameters which have directly affected directional hole cleaning. The thesis is based on an experimental set-up designed in Sharif University. In the experimental work, two types of drilling fluid, Newtonian and Non-Newtonian with numerous rheological parameters, three different flow rate, three various nozzle sizes and three individual RPMs in three distinct inclinations 30°, 60° and 90° were used to simulate. Also, to...

    Constitutive Modeling and Numerical Simulation of Coronary Arteries Mechanical Behavior in Stenting and Succeeding Growth

    , Ph.D. Dissertation Sharif University of Technology Fereidoonnezhad, Behrooz (Author) ; Naghdabadi, Reza (Supervisor) ; Sohrabpour, Saeed (Supervisor)
    Cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of death worldwide. Atherosclerosis is one of the major types of cardiovascular diseases in which fibrous and fatty materials, called plaque, build up inside the artery and cause partial or total occlusion of the artery. Intravascular balloon angioplasty with or without stenting is the most common treatment of this disease. In 2010, approximately 954000 stent implantations were performed in the United States. The major issue associated with stenting is reclosure or renarrowing of the transverse section of the artery termed in-stent restenosis (ISR). Unfortunately, nearly one–third of the patients
    who receive stent implantation require further...
