IHS DeclinePlus - Getting Started

Perform decline and powerful type well analysis the most efficient way possible.

Need to perform declines on hundreds of wells?

Want to compare well performance among different operators?

This course includes a basic introduction to two common workflows in IHS DeclinePlus. Students will complete a decline workflow and a type well analysis workflow during this 1.5 hour class. Attendees are encouraged to attend the IHS Harmony - Getting Started course as a pre-requisite. Participants will learn how to:

  • Perform a general decline analysis and create a decline workflow
  • Perform a general type well analysis and use that analysis to describe production for a new well

Note: This is an introductory software course designed to familiarize students with the basic features and functionality within the software. Theory and applied knowledge is beyond the scope of this class.

Course Details

Length: 1.5 Hours

Who Should Attend: Engineers, Geologists and technologists involved in decline analysis or type well (type curve) analysis will benefit from this class.
