Production Accounting & Material Balance

Liquid & Gas Balances - Measures & Metering - Production Reporting
BILMAT-EN-P

Who should attend?

  • This course provides the fundamental knowledge for understanding production balance, linking relevant operations and production figures which impact issues such as transfer fee, exchange between fields, field use…
Public :
  • Managers, engineers, technical or non-technical staff involved in production reporting or material balance handling (assessing fee, value created, etc.).

Level :Knowledge

Prerequisite :
  • In order to be able to follow this training, trainees are asked to fulfill at least one of the criteria below:
  • either have an engineer level or equivalent,
  • or proven professional experience in production operations or mass balance of at least 6 months,
  • or to have followed a discovery course of the entire oil chain from the reservoir to the export point.

Course Content

  • THE PRODUCTION CHAIN FROM THE RESERVOIR TO THE EXPORT POINT - Duration : 0.5 Day

      • Field operations mapping.
      • Nature and characteristics of fluids accounted for.
      • Field processing of well effluent: surface facilities.
      • BFD studies.
  • MEASURES & METERING SYSTEMS ALONG THE CHAIN - Duration : 0.5 Day

      • Well measurements and production tests.
      • Metering systems and their location in the plant:
      • Technology, accuracy, calibration.
      • “Filter” concept of a metering system.
      • Process metering.
      • Transactional metering.
      • Tank gauging.
  • LIQUID & GAS BALANCES - Duration : 1.25 Days

      • Production accounting rules.
      • PFD studies of Oil & Gas treatment units.
      • Liquid balances: oil balance, condensate balance, LPG balance, water balance.
      • Gas balances: dry gas and wet gas field cases.
      • Case studies:
      • Study of oil and condensate balances.
      • Reconstruction of a natural gas and associated gas balance (Oil & Gas cap ring).
  • PERFORMANCE MONITORING & PRODUCTION REPORTING

  • CASE STUDY & PRODUCTION BALANCES RECONSTRUCTION: BACK ALLOCATION, SATELLITE FIELDS, MAIN PRODUCTION CENTERS

Learning Objectives

  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • Establish production balance from basic data (well tests, process measurements, fiscal data),
  • Explain performance monitoring mechanisms and production reporting tools,
  • Describe accounting and back allocation rules specific to process or production mode.

Ways & Means

  • Highly interactive and applied course by industry specialist lecturers.
  • Numerous illustrations and cases studies.

Learning assessment

  • Assessment by test at the end of the course.
