URTeC SC-02 | Unconventional Reservoir Production (Rate-Transient) Analysis
Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE)
Saturday, 18 July – Sunday, 19 July 2020, 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. | Austin, Texas
Who Should Attend
Engineers, geologists and managers in industry or academia involved in developing or evaluating unconventional gas reserves will benefit from a background in the latest techniques for production analysis of unconventional reservoirs.
Upon completion of this course, participants should:
- Recognize typical flow-regimes observed for MFHWs completed in unconventional reservoirs,
and understand how to identify them using diagnostic plots
- Understand the origin of some important RTA models used to analyze unconventional reservoirs
- Understand how to correct for variable operating conditions and fluid properties
- Be conversant with straight-line (flow regime analysis) and type-curve methods, and how they
are used to derive fracture/reservoir properties and fluid in place
- Be familiar with how unconventional reservoir properties may be incorporated into RTA models
- Be conversant with a rigorous workflow for the analysis of unconventional reservoir production
This course introduces workflow and reviews methods for performing quantitative rate-transient analysis of fractured vertical and multi-fractured horizontal wells (MFHWs), produced from unconventional (low-permeability) gas and light oil reservoirs, including shales. State-of-the-art methods to account for unconventional reservoir complexities, such as multi-phase flow and stress-dependent permeability, are introduced, and their application is demonstrated using field examples. Techniques for analysis of both long-term (online) production and short-term (flowback) data are discussed.
Why You Should Attend
Unconventional gas reserves are transforming energy outlooks around the world. This course is a must for those who require background in the latest techniques.
