Mini-Frac (DFIT) Analysis for Unconventional Reservoirs using IHS WellTest

Enhance testing and interpretation

Want improved reservoir analysis skills? Need to expand software applications?

This engineering and software training course provides a comprehensive methodology for the analysis of DFIT/mini-frac tests. Practical considerations and guidelines for conducting mini-frac tests to obtain reservoir flow capacity (kh) and estimate pore pressure are discussed.

Course Details

Length: One day, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Who Should Attend: Engineers and technologists performing or intending to perform DFIT/mini-frac tests on unconventional reservoirs.

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of pressure transient analysis theory and basic windows navigation skills.

Tuition: This course is available to in-house groups on request. Please contact us to request a quote.

Cancellation Policy: To cancel without penalty, please give notice seven calendar days prior to the start of the course. Without prior notice, you will be charged full tuition.

*Class hours can be used towards APEGA professional development credits.
Topics Covered
  • Estimate instantaneous shut-in pressure (ISIP)
  • Identify fracture closure using G-function, sqrt(t) and log-log plots
  • Label after-closure flow regimes
  • Conduct after closure analysis (using Nolte and Soliman solutions)
  • History match "after-closure" data using models to bound results when radial flow is not achieved
Instructors

Dylan Lougheed, P. Eng.
Dylan graduated with a B. Sc. in Computer Engineering. He is a technical engineer whose key responsibilities include software training, support and technical development of IHS WellTest and IHS Harmony™.

Martin Santo
Martin is a Senior Technical Advisor with over 30 years of well test experience. In addition to analyzing thousands of well tests throughout the world, he coordinated the integration of practical applications into IHS WellTest. Martin has been teaching “hands-on” courses in well test analysis for the past 17 years. He continues to coordinate the development of IHS WellTest, focusing on mini-frac tests as a means of acquiring critical reservoir properties in unconventional reservoirs.
