SPEI: Basic Pressure Transient Test Analysis

REGISTER SOON:  http://www.spe.org/training/courses/BPT.php

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

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
