Course Overview

The objective of this course is to learn and practice the design and analysis of pressure transient well tests. It will cover basic mathematics and theory of well testing, and emphasis will be upon the practical interpretation and design of well tests for both oil and gas wells, and will include injection wells through the use of software.

Who is it for?

The course is designed for:

  • Completion engineers

  • Production engineers

  • Reservoir engineers

  • Drilling engineers

  • Field supervisors

  • Production foremen

  • Engineering technicians

  • Geologists

Attendees should have 1-5 years of experience and have a basic knowledge of Reservoir Engineering.
