Well Engineering and Production > Well Test Analysis in Practice

About this training

This 5-day training course enables participants to learn and understand the fundamental concepts of well test analysis. The methodology described in the course, which has become the standard of the industry, presents a systematic way of interpreting well tests in homogeneous and heterogeneous reservoirs, including fissured and multilayered systems.  Recommendations for designing tests in such formations, examples, and problem-solving sessions for practical experience and immediate application are included in the course.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the well test analysis methodology
  • Present the straight line, log-log pressure, derivative and deconvolution analysis methods
  • Learn the most common reservoir behaviours and boundary effects
  • Carry out the gas and multiphase analysis

The course is intended for individuals who involved with the design and interpretation of well tests. The following personnel will benefit from the knowledge shared in this course:

  • Petroleum Production Engineers
  • Production and Wellsite Geologist
  • Geophysicist
  • Reservoir Engineer
  • Drilling Engineer
  • Basic or Foundation
  • Intermediate

Your expert course leader has taught numerous well test interpretation industry courses around the world and has been involved in many consulting projects. He is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) since 1969, and he was elected a Distinguished Member in 2002 and an Honorary Member in 2009. He has chaired or organized many SPE Advanced Technology Workshops. He is a recognized expert in well test analysis and has published over one hundred technical papers and was responsible for many advances in well test interpretation, including: the use of Greens functions; wellbore storage and skin, fractured wells, and wells with double porosity behavior; the first major commercial computer-aided interpretation software; single-well and multi-well deconvolution; and a well test interpretation methodology which has become standard in the oil industry.

To further optimise your learning experience from our courses, we also offer individualized “One to One” coaching support for 2 hours post training. We can help improve your competence in your chosen area of interest, based on your learning needs and available hours. This is a great opportunity to improve your capability and confidence in a particular area of expertise. It will be delivered over a secure video conference call by one of our senior trainers. They will work with you to create a tailor-made coaching program that will help you achieve your goals faster.

Course materials (binder, examples) were effective, but the main values of the course were the instructor’s experience.
