About The Courses

This course provides fundamental training on integrated production modelling. It is structured to cover field development analysis, optimization and performance forecasting in an integrated fashion using PROSPER, MBAL and GAP.

It will improve the engineer’s understanding of the approach to building Integrated Production Models using PROSPER, MBAL and GAP, with a focus on the engineering, quality control and program navigation and the kind of opportunities that these models afford engineers and the organisation in terms of getting more value from the managed assets.

The course pays specific attention to discussing the fundamental physical principles behind the operation of the tools, thereby giving attendees the ability to independently use the software tools to quality check existing physical models, and understand and optimize the performance of production systems.

Course Agenda

Day 1

  • Introduction to integrated production system and why an overall approach is necessary
  • Introduction to Production enhancement
  • Fluid flow concepts/ flow from reservoir to wellbore
  • Phase Behaviour of reservoir fluids
  • VLP flow correlations theory. Important parameters
  • Workshop – building a wellbore model, matching PVT and flow correlations, running sensitivities, generation of lift curves for output to GAP or simulator.

Day 2

  • Inflow performance models – Vogel, Darcy, multi-layer, horizontal, fractured etc.
