Some sample questions based on Petroleum Engineering are-
Q1: A section of a clean sandstone reservoir was logged and found to have a porosity of 10%. The cementation (m) and saturation (n) exponents are equal to 2. The constant ‘a’ in Archie’s saturation equation is 1. The formation water resistivity is 0.036 ohm-meter and the formation resistivity is 10ohm-meter. The water saturation in the reservoir is______%.
Q2: A ground station has a pump, which delivers a head of 1,000 m water. It is pumping oil of specific gravity 0.8 into a horizontal pipe of diameter 0.5 m with an average velocity of 2 m/s. The efficiency of the pump is 80%. Density of water is 1,000 kg/m3 and acceleration due to gravity is 9.8 m/s2. The power required to operate the pump is _______________ Mega Watts and acceleration due to gravity is______ ?
These type of questions will asked last year in the exam. So, be prepared with these kind of questions and then you can achieve much good in the exam.
