Thomas Enos (Reservoir Engineer), assisted by Rhod Phillips (Head of Engineering), taught a module in decline curve analysis (“DCA”) to the Petroleum Engineering MSc students at Imperial College London.
The half-day long course gives an introduction to DCA with a focus practical examples. It covers the theory of DCA, best practice, and mistakes to avoid. The course also involved a number of example exercises that included the students constructing their own spreadsheet models to best fit decline curves to observed production data.
