Course Description: This one-day course will provide fundamental background information and concepts to forecast production for developed wells in unconventional, low-permeability reservoirs as covered in SPEE Monograph 4. All 10 chapters of the Monograph will be discussed, but due to the short one-day course duration, the coverage of some background chapters will be limited. The course will emphasize the following concepts:

  • Fluid flow fundamentals
  • Arps' decline model
  • Alternative decline models
  • Rate transient analysis
  • Numerical simulation
  • Uncertainty in forecasts
  • Example forecasts

The objective of the course is to provide participants with sufficient background such that they can use available commercial production forecasting software with more confidence and understanding. In addition, participants may be able to develop personal spreadsheets for special applications.

Participants will receive a copy of the SPEE Monograph 4, supplemental course notes, excel spreadsheet templates for example problems, snacks and a lunch.
