UHSPE Software Seminar: IHS (Tuesday, November 10, 2015)

What: IHS Software Seminar
When: Tuesday, November 10, 2015, 10AM – 12:30PM
Where: UH Energy Research Park, Building 9, Room 124

IHS, one of the world’s largest and leading E&P information providers and developers in solutions, will be presenting at UH tomorrow on how students can use their software tools to conduct research. IHS provides industry with cutting edge software that helps professionals make cost-effective decisions and companies profitable. Learn how you can use IHS tools by attending!

The schedule for the program is as follows:

  • DeclinePlus (40 minutes) – How oil and gas operators use public production data to compare the performance of their wells to their surrounding competitors. Also time-saving workflows to forecast production from each well.
  • 10 minute break
  • RTA (45 minutes) – Advanced production data analysis in unconventional shale reservoirs. A modern workflow to characterize a shale reservoir, including Monte Carlo Risk analysis for probabilistic production forecasts. This can be preceded by a concepts video generated by Dave Anderson for attendees to watch in advance. It will be an excellent way educate the attendees and focus our presentation on the workflow and steps an engineer takes for these analyses.
  • 10 Minute break
  • Pipeline optimization & design (30 minutes) – Setting up a surface hydraulic model to identify system bottlenecks, now and as new wells are drilled and tied into the pipeline network. Uses IHS Piper software.
  • Questions and Answers (15 minutes)

Before attending the event, please review the following to help get up to speed:

  • Pre-learning: SPE 102505 The Selection, Application, and Misapplication of Reservoir Analogs for the Estimation of Petroleum Reserves.
  • Pre-learning (video): RTA Theory for Unconventional Reservoirs, 6 part video series (80 minutes total): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnGyDe7mjvo&list=PL246A6D2CE2259CF2
  • Pre-learning: SPE 145088 – Quantifying Uncertainty in Rate Transient Analysis for Unconventional Gas Reservoirs. Optional further reading is SPE 155737 – Probabilistic Forecasting of Unconventional Resources Using Rate Transient Analysis: Case Studies
  • Pre-learning (video): Gas Gathering System Modeling – A 5 Step Approach to Production Optimization: http://cdn.ihs.com/fekete/Videos/TechnicalVideos/video05/intro.htm

IHS has generously provided the UH Petroleum Engineering Program with a university grant and access to their software. They are also providing attendees with demo copies of Harmony, Piper and WellTest. The event is open to all students and faculty interested.
