Unconventional Resources Analysis and Processing

In response to the current situation, and as a possible alternative to that next box set, KAPPA is offering a series of online short courses to provide you the opportunity to learn something new in a small, lively, interactive group of like- minded engineers.

You will have access, before and after the session, to the suite of software required for the learning.

As the delivery is online, the format is a series of short interactive live sessions of show and tell followed by guided examples worked by the attendees with online real-time assistance from the tutor.

We have chosen content that is very specific to industry issues at the moment.

We cover only essential theory but provide access to resources for more in depth learning as required.

Places are limited and these courses are, to support people in these difficult times, offered at no charge.

We hope you enjoy learning something new!

Two Hour Online Unconventional Resources Course with Real Examples

The analysis and interpretation of unconventional reservoir performance, working on key issues including but not limited to:

  • Compositional Modeling
  • Flowback
  • Mini Frac
  • Multilayered and Multi-well Modeling
  • Multiphase PVT
  • Rate Transient Analysis
  • Well Interference
  • Basin specific field examples and workflows from Canada and the USA
  • Small group setting to encourage knowledge sharing among participants
  • Software coverage includes Saphir, Topaze, Rubis

Pre-Requisites to attend the course

Although very beneficial, no prior knowledge of KAPPA software is required,. The software, for individual, personal non-commercial use, will be provided before the course.

About the Course

The Unconventional Resources Course provides participants with the opportunity to work in a small group setting to dive deeper into the challenges facing our industry. The course includes the analysis and modeling of complex reservoirs using various analytical, empirical, and numerical techniques.
Leveraging off the KAPPA Unconventional Resources Consortium (KURC), which consisted of 28 E&P and Service companies worldwide, we are better able to provide insight and software tools to understand the complexity of these types of formations and reservoirs.
Using relevant field examples, the participant can look at parent-child well interactions, DFNs, frac hits, uplift potential and field optimization. The most up-to-date and robust modeling techniques are used and discussed openly in small group sessions.
