Description

Decline Curve analysis is a vital part of a Petroleum Engineer's skill set.  Though it is a technique applied very often, many have little or no specific formal training in the subject.  Dr. Poston's 2-day class will serve as an excellent resource for the full spectrum of engineers using decline curve analysis - from the novice to the experienced.

1.  Introduction to Decline Curve Analysis
2.  Application of Decline Curves
3.  Type Curves
4.  The Exponential Decline
5.  Hyperbolic and Harmonic Curves
6.  Interpretation of Field Curves
