Integral Well Productivity

A comprehensive discussion of the sub-surface production system, enabling detailed analysis and diagnosis of production impeachments and their corrective mitigation, has to take in to account the integrality of the production system: from the reservoir offer and limitations to the wellbore restrictions and the production completions.

This 2-week course discusses methods to analyze reservoir behavior and optimize production based on decline curve analizis and Nodal analysis. Also, the course discusses the performance of fracturing completions and acid stimulations.

Oilfield economics, applied to well interventions, are also discussed.

Practical exercises illustrate each module and enable full comprehension of the methods explained.
