Description - Harmony Forecast - This course will provide an introduction to general navigation and forecasting in Harmony Forecast. Students will complete decline analysis, typewell analysis, and reserves procedures during this 1-day class.
Participants will learn how to:
– Connect to a Harmony Enterprise™ project database
– Load data from several source types and manage project data efficiently
– Perform general decline analyses
– Create and apply a Workflow that combines multiple analyses together
– Perform a general typewell analysis and use that analysis to describe production for a new well
– Create and update reserves
Note: This is an introductory software course designed to familiarize students with the features and functionality within the software. Detailed theory and applied knowledge are beyond the scope of this class.
Topics Covered
General project creation and management
– Connect to an existing project
– Make custom hierarchies and filters
– Navigate the Attributes tab and create a custom attribute
– Create custom groups based on attributes
– Import shapefiles
– Create and use an analysis Workflow
Data loading and organization
– Import data from plain-content and markup files
– Import data from existing Harmony files
– Update wells by connecting to IHS Markit data sources (e.g. Enerdeq)
– View results, create reports, and export data
General decline analysis procedure
– Navigate the Diagnostics tab
– Create a decline analysis
– Modify an existing decline analysis
– Create volumetric and ratio analyses
– Use the Forecast worksheet
– Manage the Results Viewer
– Adjust and apply default decline settings
– Evaluate analysis results using cross plots and other tools
General typewell analysis procedure
– Show diagnostics plot for a group of wells
– Query wells and combine them into a single group analysis
– Remove outlier wells
– Align production data by peak rate
– Use statistical rates to create declines (average rate, P90,P50,P10)
– Normalize production data against different attributes
– Restrict the production data range used to fit decline data
– Use a typewell forecast to describe future wells
General reserves procedure
– Examine previous reserves analyses and methodology
– Update production data and add a reference date
– Update existing and create new reserves analyses
– Consolidate forecasts
General unconventional gas procedure
– Create non-Arps decline analyses including multi-segment, stretched exponential, Duong
Who Should Attend
Engineers, Geologists and technologists interested in any of the following:
– Creating and maintaining project data
– Learning to load data
– Creating a decline analysis or typewell (type curve) analysis
General Notes
Students should have an understanding of basic engineering principles including:
– Well attributes
– Production data
– Arps decline analysis
– Reserves
Basic Windows navigation skills and spreadsheet skills are also recommended

 

Description - Harmony Reservoir (Unconventional)
This course will provide a comprehensive methodology for well performance analysis, with specific focus on unconventional oil and gas wells. The approach combines the use of several powerful rate transient analysis tools and techniques. Students will use typecurve, flowing material balance (FMB), unconventional reservoir module (URM), analytical model and hybrid numerical model analyses during this 1-day class.
Participants will learn how to:
– Critically assess data quality and perform qualitative diagnostics on well production data
– Identify reservoir flow regimes from rate/pressure response
– Estimate reserves, OGIP/OOIP and drainage area
– Determine well performance parameters
– Recognize pressure dependent permeability
– Identify optimization candidates, including re-fracturing
– Forecast production, focusing on the inherent uncertainty in unconventional plays
– Examine the practical aspects of rate transient analysis using examples
Note: This is an introductory software course designed to familiarize students with the features and functionality within the software. While some theory will be presented, detailed theory and play-specific workflows are beyond the scope of this class.
Topics Covered
An introduction to well performance analysis
– Review the fundamentals of rate transient analysis
– Learn the modern production analysis methodology
The transition from conventional to unconventional
– Describe a horizontal well with multiple fractures
– Define stimulated reservoir volume (SRV) and cross-sectional area to flow (Ac)
– List the expected flow regimes for a horizontal multifrac well
Data diagnostic workflow
– Navigate the Diagnostics tab
– Use a typecurve to evaluate data validity
– Filter data using automatic and manual methods
– Identify expected flow regimes using typecurves
Reservoir interpretation
– Determine contacted area from the flowing material balance
– Identify first linear flow with the specialized plot
– Estimate formation conductivity (Ac√k) and the time to end of linear flow (telf)
– Evaluate SRV parameters, including permeability and fracture half-length
Modeling
– History match data to confirm interpretation
– Forecast future production, and compare with decline forecasts
– Evaluate uncertainty with Monte-Carlo probabilistic methods
Advanced tools and methods
– Recognize pressure dependent permeability and apply geomechanical methods
– Apply adsorption to shale reservoirs
– Interpret gas-condensate or volatile-oil reservoirs with modified black-oil analyses
– Evaluate wells as re-fracturing candidates, or history match wells that have already been re-fractured
Who Should Attend
Engineers and technologists involved in the exploitation, production and evaluation of tight and unconventional reservoirs.
General Notes
At least some prior experience with the Harmony environment is expected. An ideal prerequisite is the Harmony Forecast™ course. Alternatively, attending the Harmony Enterprise™ - Getting Started course would be satisfactory.
Students should have an understanding of basic engineering principles including:
– Well attributes and reservoir properties
– Production data quality
– Pressure calculations in pipelines and wellbores
– Conventional reservoir analysis
