OPT1-EN-P

## Who should attend?

• This course provides a thorough understanding, methodology and tools to integrate data and models from the reservoir to the surface facilities.
Public :
• Production engineers, petroleum engineers or reservoir engineers willing to integrate reservoir with surface models using Integrated Production System technology.

Level :Skilled

Prerequisite :
• Engineer degree or equivalent experience in Oil & Gas production.

## Course Content

• ### WELL PERFORMANCE

• Introduction to well performance nodal analysis: inflow/outflow.
• Review on Productivity Index (PI).

• Transient IPR curves.
• Vertical Lift Performance (VLP) correlations and curves, downhole production considerations: skin calculation, gravel pack design.
• Multiphase flow in tubing, liquid holdup, flow regimes, correlations in nodal analysis.
• Overview of PROSPER™ software workflow.
• PROSPER™: building initial well system file - IPR modeling using PROSPER™, building a wellbore model, sensitivity studies.
• Partial penetration, deviated wells, hydraulically fractured wells, gravel pack completions, artificial lift.
• Skin estimation.
• ### RESERVOIR PERFORMANCE & MODELING: PREDICTION OF PRODUCTION PROFILE

• Material balance for various reservoirs: production mechanisms.
• Flow regimes (transient and pseudo-steady state flow).
• Reservoir modeling through material balance.
• Introduction to MBAL™.
• MBAL™ data input and modeling aspects. Aquifer dimensioning and modeling.
• History matching techniques on MBAL™: analytical and graphical methods.
• Forecasting production performance.
• Tank model building, PVT and correlations matching, history matching.
• ### INTEGRATED PRODUCTION SYSTEM MODELS

• Definition.
• Introduction to the software tool to be used.
• From reservoir to surface: the principle of linking MBAL™, PROSPER™ and GAP™.

## Learning Objectives

• Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
• predict global production through integrated modeling,
• describe MBAL™, PROSPER™ and GAP™ theory, capabilities and synergies,
• perform a case study aiming at building tank model, PVT match, well performance and surface network including the use of specialized software (IPM™, MBAL™, PROSPER™, GAP™),
• apply integrated modeling using the mentioned tools.

## Ways & Means

• Interactive presentations, practical exercises and hands-on activities using dedicated software (IPM™, MBAL™, PROSPER™, GAP™).
