Attendees of this course, offered in both 2-day and 3-day versions, will learn the Arps equations, the affects of layering and changing fluid properties on the Arps exponent, and comparing production characteristics of horizontal to vertical wells. Interpretation of performance curves to determine drive mechanisms, recovery efficiency, and effects of operations will also be covered. Other topics include:
- The utility of the quadratic equation
- The Fetkovich type curve approach
- The Blasingame type curve approach
- The Poe type curve approach for horizontal wells
Why You Should Attend
You will learn the meanings and limitations of the Arps exponential, hyperbolic, and harmonic equations.
Who Should Attend
This course is for all professionals who work with production data processing.
At least basic math skills are required. Some higher-level math would be helpful but all problems can be solved with a spreadsheet.
