Courses are mounted on a Moodle-type platform.
The course consists of several units and each unit
is made up of reading material, spoken videos,
as well as evaluation questionnaires.
Course added value: real time assistance will be provided
during the course in case is needed to clarify doubts or
share comments. Assistance is provided by the course instructor
and creator. Course will be open until completion.
Well Test Analysis Overview.
Main objective is to present a brief summary on Well Testing Methodology
which is commonly used to identify in quite a fast way the reservoir model
associated to the drainage or injection area of the well under testing and
to determine the parameters related to the reservoir flow capacity as well
as the evaluation of present well productivity which are results derived
from Pressure Transient Analysis (PTA)
To provide a basic understanding of both practical and advanced methods currently in use for pressure transient analysis.
Understand why, when and how to test a well and in the right way.
Understand the principles of fluid flow through porous media.
Learn how to interpret pressure transient data acquired in both conventional or non-conventional oil or gas reservoirs.
Understand when to use either a linear or nonlinear analytical or a numerical solution for pressure data interpretation.
Course is divided in IV Modules and each Module (I to III) consists of
reading material and a video containing spoken presentation.
Module IV is a knowledge evaluation test.
