Harmony Enterprise has all the "Multi's." Multi-phase, Multi-well, Multi-layer. But how do you use them for your unconventional wells? In this presentation, we’ll help you get up and running to build the following models yourself, in just minutes, using Harmony Enterprise V2019.2:
- Single Well Numerical Model
- Multi-Well Numerical Model
- Disable wells for well-spacing scenarios
- Schedule future wells for future on-steam dates
- “Shotgun” style completions with wells at different landing depths
- Layers of gas, oil, and water, and how they will interact
A Sneak Peek at Harmony Enterprise 2019.2
View this webinar for an overview of what's new in Harmony Enterprise 2019.2!
Enhancements for Multi-Well Numerical Models:
- Multiple layers for unconventional model: model several layers with unique reservoir properties per layer (e.g. saturations). Layers may communicate through fractures and SRVs of the wells and/or through the matrix.
- Model Gas Condensate: for conventional and unconventional reservoirs.
- Saturation distribution map: display saturations in a convenient weighted color scheme (Red = Gas, Green = Oil, Blue = Water)
We also look at some key performance improvements that have been implemented, as well as some user requested enhancements included in the release.
Going Beyond ESP Design with SubPUMP
Do you use Electric Submersible Pumps to lift your wells? Have you ever wondered if your well’s current ESP design is the most efficient one? Can you optimize your current ESP performance by changing operational settings? What about future installs, should you keep an equivalent design or try some new settings for your well? If you've ever had these questions before when working with wells with ESPs then this webinar may be for you!
Please join us for a complimentary session to talk about using analytical tools to:
- Validate ESP design currently installed in the well and understand its operational limits
- Diagnosis and optimization of current ESP install
- Scenarios for ESP performance improvements for extreme operational conditions (gassy wells, high viscosity, high temperature, etc)
- Vendor benchmarking for future equipment selection
- And more
Decline Curve Analysis: Solving Reservoir Engineering Tasks in a More Efficient Way
The purpose of a Decline analysis is to generate a forecast of future production rates and to determine the expected ultimate recoverable (EUR) reserves in wells. Many times, performing this type of work can be time consuming.
Join us as we discuss how to solve these reservoir engineering tasks in a more efficient way, using Harmony Enterprise.
In this presentation, we will review a typical asset team project that will include completing some of the following actions:
- Performing Decline Curve Analysis in all the wells in a given area.
- Exporting the decline parameters to other reserves software.
- Plotting a cumulative distribution function of the EUR’s and estimate the P50.
- Cross plotting EUR's with the peak rate, looking for a trend.
- Bubble mapping the results on a GIS map.
- Consolidating forecasts and rolling them up to a field level.
- Automating workflows to allow multiple decline curve analysis interpretations.
- Bulk editing and removal of declines curves.
- Monitoring wells to find out how they have performed against the forecast in the last 30 days of their production.
Case Study: Improve Your RTA Results – Integrate PTA for Reduced Uncertainty
Due to the complexity of Multi-Stage Horizontal Well completions, flow characteristics are difficult to quantify, and multiple solutions are normally obtained. These wells require significant “clean-up” periods before a reliable analysis can be obtained. Incorporating the analysis of buildups is vital to help understand the system dynamics and provide additional confidence in the solution. Establishing the initial pressure and estimate of permeability from pre-frac tests such as DFIT’s, is essential to reduce uncertainty in the analysis.
Information gained from other activities, such as microseismic surveys, can also provide valuable insight to help narrow the range of solutions.
In this presentation, we use actual data obtained from a Horn River gas completion to demonstrate a clear and logical workflow to navigate through the entire process using two IHS Markit software applications; Harmony Enterprise and WellTest. The process is also applicable for liquid rich systems.
Type Wells – A More Efficient & Reliable Approach
See a practical evaluation on how to develop more reliable type wells in this 466 well and 3 operator field case in just a few minutes. How? By using our new type well development features within Harmony Enterprise. This presentation will demonstrate taking your type well development work to the next level. We will review a typical asset team project that will include completing some of the following actions:
- Query creation using Enerdeq
- Development of P90-P50-P10 Type Wells
- Benchmarking operator well performance
- Solution to the survivor bias problem
- PUD creation and economics evaluation
- Use of cumulative distribution function and cross plots
- Impact of completed lateral length on type wells
Produce More – Connect Your RTA Reservoir Models to Optimize Your Surface Facilities
See a 60 well case study of an RTA Reservoir customer who decided to plan their surface facility capacity to accommodate their infill plans and reach their production targets. How? By connecting their RTA Reservoir models with their wellbore and surface hydraulics. This presentation will demonstrate taking your RTA Reservoir work to the next level to plan and optimize your own surface hydraulics. We will discuss the following benefits:
- Get more value from your RTA Reservoir work
- Connect multiple engineering disciplines at your office
- Quickly understand the current and future state of your gathering system
- Meet production targets
- Quantify gas back-out with pressure increases
- Size compression and pipelines with greater confidence
Fast and Reliable Analysis for Gas Lifted Wells
Gas lift is a traditional artificial lift system that helps oil and gas wells lift fluids from the bottom of the well to the surface when there is not enough energy to do this in a natural manner.
In this post we discuss how to evaluate these wells in a quick and easy manner.
Ranking Well Performance – Does Flowing Pressure Matter?
The main measurement of a well’s value is its Net Present Value (NPV). The revenue portion of NPV is directly related to discounted production over the life of the well — its discounted production to Expected Ultimate Recovery (discounted EUR). A correct ranking of well production performance is a ranking based on discounted EUR. Does this match up with how wells are commonly ranked?
A Study of Rate Transient Analysis: Are You Making the Most of Your Data?
As engineers, we are currently in an age where we have more data than ever before. However in these times where data is king and we are surrounded by terabytes of data, are we making the best use of what we have available and especially that of flowing pressure data?
Two Questions and Three Equations on Distance of Investigation
The distance of investigation concept is often used to answer two different types of questions:
- How far have we investigated into the reservoir?
- What is the distance to the boundary?
Traditionally, these two questions have been answered using the same equation, namely, the radius of investigation equation and this approach has worked well for many years. However with the appearance of unconventional reservoir systems, other distance of investigation equations are being used. Read this post to learn more.
Understanding the Basics of Liquid Loading
In gas wells, liquid loading takes place when the gas rate is not high enough to lift liquids (e.g. water and/or condensate) to the surface. Engineers are often tasked to identify and correct this type of production problem through operational changes (e.g. reducing wellhead pressure).
Read this post to learn more about how to evaluate these wells.
IPRs and Unconventional Reservoirs
The industry has changed dramatically since the advent of the shale revolution in North America, enabled by the application of horizontal drilling and multi-stage hydraulic fracturing to allow commercial production of hydrocarbon from ultra-low permeability reservoirs in resource plays.
In this post, IHS Markit will discuss how this situation affected the way we analyze, evaluate, characterize and quantify the reservoir performance as people make decisions to sustain and optimize hydrocarbon production.
