Evaluating Well Performance Using the Completion Efficiency Technique
|Event Date/Time: Oct 19, 2009||End Date/Time: Oct 21, 2009|
This three-day course is designed for reservoir engineers, geologists, petrophysicists, completion engineers, and asset managers involved with completion designs, or with reviewing completion recommendations from service companies. The course will help participants improve completion results and maximize asset value by optimizing stimulation treatments. The "Completion Efficiency" process (SPE 90483) involves the development of a calibrated net pay model to determine if poor production performance is the result of permeability-thickness, reservoir pressure, completion practices, or a combination of these factors. An integrative process stresses using wireline logs, core data, and production test data in order to develop local models and ultimately predict production performance using only a basic log suite and completion information. Diagnostic techniques such as post completion radioactive tracers and production logs are discussed to supplement performance analysis. Subsequent to model development and implementation, a comprehensive review of "best practices" from analog field studies is provided to aid in the optimization of future or existing well completions. Participants will receive a fully functional log analysis calculation spreadsheet that includes calculation of all inputs required to develop calibrated permeability and stress profiles. Comprehensive case studies are provided, and participants are encouraged to provide local examples for discussion of model implementation and "best practices" for their areas of activity. *Each student will require a laptop with Microsoft Excel and Adobe Reader installed for this course*
A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
