IHS WellTest Training

Acquire a thorough understanding of the reservoir

Want a better reservoir prediction method? Need to improve software skills?

This software course provides a comprehensive methodology for pressure transient analysis. Participants will learn how to import and prepare data for analysis, conduct bottomhole calculations, perform diagnostic analyses, history match and forecast. AOF analysis will also be reviewed. Basic pressure transient analysis theory will be explained as needed.

Course Details

Who Should Attend: Engineers and technologists interested in learning basic pressure transient analysis theory. Users who are new to the WellTest program will benefit most from this course.

Prerequisites: Participants should have a basic working knowledge of pressure transient analysis concepts and basic Windows navigation skills.

Tuition: This course is available to in-house groups on request. Please contact us to request a quote.
