Course description

Learn the latest methods for calculating gas well performance from reservoir to sales. Reservoir performance covers the fundamentals of reservoir gas flow and details the best methods for testing wells, according to the time and money available. Reserve calculations and diagnostic testing from production data are covered. The importance of flow regime and non-Darcy flow on test design and interpretation is emphasized for new wells and for the possibility of improving the performance of older wells. Also discussed are performances of tight formations, horizontal wells, fractured wells, and methods for estimating gas reserves. Participants will learn to calculate and determine the effect of each system component on total well performance, which permits optimum sizing of tubing, flowlines, separators, and compressors. Problem-solving sessions allow participants to evaluate field problems. Participants receive complimentary software at the end of the course.

Suitability - Who should attend?

Production, reservoir and facilities engineers, and others involved in gas production, transportation, and storage including field supervisors.
