Production System Design and Analysis



This course utilizes Nodal Analysis techniques for the design and performance analysis of the production system starting from the formation up to the production separator. Topics include inflow performance relationships, multiphase flow in horizontal, vertical and inclined pipes, overall well performance evaluation considering various nodes within the production system, and applications to design and analysis situations. In addition to applications to flowing wells, the application of NODAL analysis methods is discussed to the most important two versions of artificial lift techniques: gas lifting and production by electrical submersible pumps.
