Well Test Analysis Workshop

Course Overview
This four-day course will provide participants with a comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge of well test analysis techniques. Emphasis will be placed on the practical aspects of well testing - a number of relevant examples will be presented. The use of analysis results to assist in decision making related to reservoir development and well completion will be illustrated through real-life case histories. Attendees are encouraged to bring well tests used in recent projects for discussion.

A complete set of course materials and lunches are included.
