Zhou Zhu-mei;Lang Zhao-xin(Petroleum University, Beijing 102200)
Starting from the physical model of the bottom-water-drive reservoir, this paper established the mathematical model of horizontal well of 3-D diphase flow in bottom-water-drive reservoir and solve the equation by means of the Finite Element Method. When solving the pressure equations, the classical Finite Element Method based on Galerkin method is used, and the discontinuous Finite Element Method is used in solving the saturation equations to take into account the discontinuous saturation front. Using this FEM Model, the sensitive factor of the oil and water production rate of horizontal well bottom-water-drive reservoir was analysed.
