Why You Need a Nodal Model Built for EVERY Flowing Conventional Well

Tuesday, 26 May, 9:00am CST (GMT - 6:00)
Presented by Mason Gomez

This webinar will provide an overview of nodal analysis, and its role in ensuring YOU are maximizing the value from YOUR stable of producing wells. The webinar underscores the importance of modelling the reservoir, near wellbore, and well components into one system, so that you have the informed ability to change – or not change – each component to maximize the value of this critical assert – your well.

Webinar Objectives

 >>   To review reservoir flow in conventional reservoirs, using the classic Darcy model

 >>   To explain the main differences between the classic Darcy analytical model and the commonly used empirical Vogel model

 >>   To describe the near wellbore effects of Skin

 >>   To provide participants with an appreciation of flow complexity up the wellbore

 >>   To describe the clear link between a nodal model and artificial lift applications


What will attendees learn?

 >>   Webinar attendees will be able to differentiate between analytical and empirical models – and discuss the relative power of the analytical model.

 >>   Attendees will learn about balancing inflow and outflow, and what it means to be inflow constrained, or outflow constrained…

 >>   Attendees will learn about the “non-uniqueness” of an inflow solution where permeability and skin are unknown – and the potential impacts on well performance


Who Should Attend?

This webinar is particularly valuable for subsurface engineers managing conventional well stock in their assigned assets.  Although the techniques presented are not explicitly applicable to unconventional wells, there is value in knowing why these techniques do NOT apply in the shale arena, and therefore UR subsurface engineers may benefit as well from this webinar.
