Nodal Analysis for Oil and Gas Wells using IHS Perform

Production Optimization tool for oil and gas wells to debottleneck and increase production, design and optimize artificial lift system, and tackle production issues such as liquid loading, sand production and flow assurance.

Is your well producing up to its maximum potential?

Do you want to optimize your gas lift system to operate at best ecnomical efficiency?

This software workflow course provides a comprehensive methodology for understanding the Nodal Analysis model and optimizing well production. Students will learn multiphase calculations, their limitations and applications, and how to determine pressure profiles that are complicated by changing phase behaviour. Students begin the course by familiarizing themselves with the main features of IHS Perform and are shown various aspects of the software in more depth. To gain hands-on experience, students are encouraged to follow along with examples. The examples allow students to become familiar with wellbore modelling and to recognize opportunities for wellbore optimization. Basic nodal analysis theory will be explained as needed.

  • Gas Lift System Design and Optimization
  • Caliberate Wellbore Pressure and Temperature Model with Production Data
  • Oil and Gas Well Production Optimization
  • Downhole Network Calculation and Optimization
  • Gas Well Loading Prediction and Unloading Solutions
