Advanced Well Performance Analysis and Production Optimization by Nodal Analysis

About the Course

Production optimization using system analysis approach became one of the most important tools to engineers who are responsible for finding the optimum operating parameters of oil and gas wells. Production optimization, considering the integrated petroleum production system has an important and, in many cases, key role for making operating decisions, production management and decreasing of total production costs. The course will provide an outstanding of system (NODAL) analysis, so the participants can use collected knowledge for practical problem solving. The course is designed to provide comprehensive approach, including the practical solving of the number of practical problems. The participants of this course will be able to apply optimization programs available on the market with full understanding and efficient use. Current oil Inflow Well Performance for various well type (vertical, slant and horizontal wells) for multizone reservoirs is be based on zone properties defined by PLT, Transient well test and production test.

Designed for

Petroleum engineers with academic and practical experience; field operating engineers and geoscientists in the petroleum and natural gas industries.
