W. John Lee holds the Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen
Distinguished University Chair in the University of Houston’s petroleum
engineering program. Prior to this, Lee held the L.F. Peterson Chair in
petroleum engineering at Texas A&M University. He was the former executive
vice president of S.A. Holditch & Associates, where he specialized in
reservoir engineering for unconventional gas reservoirs. He served as an
Academic Engineering Fellow with the US Securities & Exchange Commission
(SEC) in Washington during 2007–2008, and was a principal architect of the
modernized SEC rules for reporting oil and gas reserves.



Prior to beginning is career in academia, Lee managed Exxon’s Major Fields
Study Group. He has written many technical papers and three SPE textbooks:
Well Testing, Gas Reservoir Engineering, and Pressure
Transient Testing
. Lee is an Honorary Member of SPE and a member of the US
National Academy of Engineering. He received his BChE, MS, and PhD degrees in
chemical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology.

This 2-day course teaches the systematic analysis and design procedures for
testing pressure buildup and flow tests. Example applications focus on
identifying the appropriate reservoir model, estimating effective formation
permeability, and quantifying damage or stimulation. Topics include:

Semilog analysis methods
• Type curves and diagnostic plots
• Gases and
multiphase flow
• Average drainage area pressure

Hydraulically-fractured wells
• Naturally-fractured reservoirs

Horizontal wells
• Effect of input data errors
• Well test
design


Why You Should Attend

This course will provide you with an understanding of the fundamentals of
buildup and flow test analysis—an understanding that will provide insight into
the strengths and limitations of the methodology used in modern commercial
pressure-transient test analysis software.


Who Should Attend

This is a basic course in well test analysis and design, suitable for
engineers and physical scientists who have little if any background in well test
theory or practice. It focuses on applications rather than
theory.
