Advanced Production Data Analysis and Nodal Analysis

4.4 Average client rating (based on 171 attendee reviews)

Predict the rate at which a well should be capable of producing, given reservoir and fluid properties, wellbore configuration, and flowing wellhead pressure. Identify which components of the reservoir/completion/wellbore system are restricting performance; analyze production data to find permeability, skin factor, and drainage area; forecast future performance from historical production trends and from known reservoir properties
