The DDA course can be taken in one two-week session or in two,
one-week sessions. To attend the second week PA/PDG (DDA II) course engineers must have already attended the Foundation
PTA course (DDA I) or equivalent.
The first week of the Dynamic Data Analysis course (DDA I) is
the Foundation Pressure Transient Analysis (FPTA) course.
The second week (DDA II) is the Production Analysis and
Permanent Downhole Gauge (PA/PDG) course.
If you plan to attend only the PA/PDG (DDA II) we strongly
recommend that you check your current level of knowledge by
taking the self assessment test
on our website.
The use of the Ecrin DDA software suite including the PTA module
(Saphir), the PA module (Topaze) and the PDG Data Management
Module (Diamant) will be taught as part of this course.
For a comprehensive course content please see the PTA (DDA
Part I) and the PA/PDG (DDA II) pages in this booklet.
