Evaluating reservoir properties of Sarajeh gas field as a depleted basin for natural gas storage

 

Abstract

The consumption of natural gas has a growing rate in the global as well as our domestic market. Natural gas reservoirs are mainly located far from the consumption centers.  On the other hand, the consumption has not been distributed evenly throughout the year. Thus, a secure gas supply to the market requires constructing natural gas storages. One of the candidates for such storage is the Sarajeh gas field in southeastern Qum. We have studied petrophysical and engineering properties of this field to explore its feasibility as gas storage. The total volume of hydrocarbon in place of the Sarajeh gas field is estimated to be 5.8 billion m3 of which about 20 % will be available as gas storage. Therefore, the volume for storing natural gas is estimated around 1.3 billion m3.
