Analysis of Production Data
Use fast-computing multiphase reservoir models to match the gas and water production rates and flowing pressures. Estimate properties, such as permeability, skin and drainage area, and diagnose problems such as liquid loading, interference and change in operating conditions.
Production and Field Optimization
Forecast well performance using variable bottomhole flowing pressure and skin. Evaluate the benefits of compression, stimulation and infill drilling. Quickly import reservoir properties into IHS Markit Piper to design and optimize your gas-gathering system.
Use multiple tools to estimate the original-gas-in-place (OGIP), expected ultimate recovery (EUR), and recovery factor. Tools include deterministic methods such as volumetrics, static and flowing material balance, as well as traditional decline analyses and probabilistic risk analysis using Monte Carlo simulation.
Utilize analytical and numerical models to characterize a coal bed methane reservoir. For wet CBM (multiphase) reservoirs, use the PSS model. For dry (single-phase gas) CBM reservoirs, use RTA-style analytical models and typecurves specially adapted to account for desorption effects.
Include multiple layers of coal or sand in a model, to match and forecast the per-layer contributions and the overall commingled production rates.
