This course will illustrate the well test analysis tool is the most effective tool of the reservoir management to make realistic decisions related to reservoir development and well production optimization through actual case studies throughout the workshop. The course will cover the fundamentals concepts of well testing and also the most advanced techniques using the Kappa (Saphir) software, including testing of Multi-stage Frac of Horizontal Wells (MFHW’s), Mini fracing (DFIT), multi- phase analysis, deconvolution, rate and time-dependent skin factor, multi-phase, Inflow Control Devices (ICD’s), flow behind casing, multi-layers and more. Also, to offer hands-on experience, attendees are encouraged to bring interesting well test data for analysis and discussion in the class, using commercial software. A scientific hand calculator will required for the offered class problems. A detailed course hand-out, which is an excellent reference, will be provided.
- Understand the theory in a concise fashion but the focus is on the practical applications for good reservoir management & production optimization
- Learn how to set test objectives and select the appropriate test to meet test objectives including test design.
- Learn how to evaluate data quality and how to analyze various tests using commercial software.
- Get familiar with the latest analysis techniques for conventional and unconventional reservoirs
