IHS VirtuWell - Getting Started

Prevent and correct liquid loading issues, while minimizing friction in your wellbore.

Need to decide when to install tubing and what size to use?

Want to reliably plan compression or velocity strings to overcome liquid loading?

This interactive course will give an overview of the IHS VirtuWell tools in the IHS Harmony environment, including software interface and navigation, and how to perform basic tasks. Students will perform production optimization workflows for both oil and gas. Participants will learn how to:

  • Perform Nodal Analysis on both gas and oil well
  • Investigate well flow for optimization with regard to liquid loading and erosion
  • Perform wellhead forecasting using RTA analytical models

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.
