Why Choose this Training Course?

This training course is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive understanding of performance analysis, prediction, and optimization of oil and gas reservoirs using nodal analysis. Participants will learn the basic principles of nodal analysis and how it is used in designing, optimizing, and troubleshooting oil and gas production systems. The course will cover topics such as inflow and outflow performance, wellbore hydraulics, fluid properties, and nodal analysis software. Participants will also have the opportunity to apply their knowledge through practical exercises and case studies.

What are the Goals?

By the end of this AZTech training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of nodal analysis, including the use of nodal analysis in performance analysis, prediction, and optimization of oil and gas production.
  • Learn the key components of nodal analysis, including inflow performance relationships (IPR), tubing performance relationships (TPR), and the application of these components in nodal analysis.
  • Understand the use of nodal analysis in identifying and diagnosing well performance issues, such as liquid loading, and selecting and optimizing artificial lift systems.
  • Learn the use of nodal analysis in predicting well performance and optimizing production rates, such as optimizing choke size and production rate to maximize production and profitability.
  • Gain an understanding of the importance of reservoir characterization and how it relates to nodal analysis and production optimization.
  • Understand the application of nodal analysis in unconventional reservoirs, including shale gas and tight oil reservoirs.
  • Gain an overview of the latest tools and technologies used in nodal analysis and production optimization.
  • Understand the practical exercises and case studies to enhance participants' understanding of the concepts covered.
