Harmony Enterprise 2019.1 Released

View the Release Notes.

Highlight of new features and enhancements:

  • Monitoring: identify forecasts deviating from production and compare actual production with forecasted production for a batch of wells to quickly identify wells requiring attention.
  • Well Security: restrict which wells are accessible by active-directory group or user.
  • Several Enhancements to the Unconventional Multi-well Model including:
    • Variable Landing Depths: simulate staggered wells by landing them at different depths. In addition, fractures and stimulated reservoir volume (SRV) for each well do not have to extend through the entire net pay, allowing a portion of the net pay to be drained.
    • Overlapping SRVs and Fractures: simulate communication between wells through overlapping SRVs and fractures, including scenarios where the child well is drilled within the SRV of the parent well. Various types of parent-child interactions can now be simulated.

July 3, 2018


Harmony Enterprise 2018.2 Released

View the Release Notes

Highlight of new features and enhancements:

  • Multi-well Model Enhancements: With the Multi-well model, you can history-match and forecast groups of wells while accounting for interference between wells. This release features the following enhancements:
    • Horizontal completions: any well within a multi-well model can now have a vertical or horizontal completion type.
    • Aquifer support: you can now model additional pressure support by connecting an aquifer to the reservoir. You can model an edge aquifer (connected to the reservoir boundary or a part of it) or a bottom aquifer (connected to the reservoir bottom or a part of it).
    • Water and gas injection: the multi-well model supports injection. You can specify water and gas injection rates in the Production editor for individual wells to model injection during the history. You can also set up a forecast to model injection.
    • Display shapefile: shapefiles that are available in the GIS tab can now be displayed on the schematic of the multi-well model. (This enables you to use a shapefile as a reference when creating or editing the reservoir boundary.)
    • Display Lat / Long: the latitude and longitude of the current position of the mouse pointer are displayed in a model schematic and can be copied to the clipboard. (This functionality can be used to add a new infill well at the location you want).
    • Copy a Multi-well model: use defaults manager to copy all the parameters of the existing multi-well model to a new one.
  • Project Economics: Perform project economics on traditional or rate transient analysis (RTA) forecasts, and compare cash flows and key performance indicators (KPIs) (e.g., net present value, internal rate of return, etc.).
  • Import PowerTools Projects: Import well attributes and production data, along with the analyses associated with them, which includes declines, volumetrics and material balance analyses.

Harmony Enterprise 2018.1 Released

View the Release Notes

Highlight of new features and enhancements:

  • Bulk Reporting: Create report sets to print one or multiple worksheets for a batch of wells. The report format is selected for each worksheet when printing, instead of upfront when the worksheet is created.
  • Bulk Delete Analyses/Worksheets: View and delete analyses and worksheets for a selection of entities.
  • Bulk Export Production: Create text exports for production history.
  • Multiphase URM and FMB: Now incorporates multiphase pseudo-pressure to account for simultaneous flow of oil / gas / water. The FMB can be used to model flowing pressure, rate, and average reservoir pressure. Additionally, the Productivity Index is available for oil.
  • Group FMB and Typecurves: Analyze total group production using FMB and Typecurves available on Hierarchy and Custom groups, and account for both production and injection.
  • Vertical Multi-well Model: With the new Multi-well model, you can history-match and forecast groups of vertical wells. This model accounts for interference between wells, while the wells have individual reservoir and completion properties in each well region.
  • Gas Static Material Balance: Estimate original gas-in-place (OGIP) for gas depletion drive and storage reservoirs using shut-in pressure data in a modified p/Z technique (p/Z**). This technique enhances the conventional gas material balance method to include water drive, connected reservoir concept (composite permeability or layered), and geo-mechanical-effected reservoirs by modifying Z to a Z** formulations. This formulation is based on SPE paper 139428, “Advanced Gas Material Balance in a Simplified Format” by Moghadam, Jeje, and Mattar, first published in the January 2011 edition of the JCPT.

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.

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.
