Diagnosis and Analysis of Waterfloods

Projects, Facilities, and Construction


This course covers well performance diagnosis and performance forecasting. Attendees will learn modern analytical tools and deal with data and their quality that enter into various studies.

Topics Include:

  • WOR type-curve for flood performance
  • Production-well behavior with reciprocal-PI plot
  • Injection-well performance monitoring with modified-Hall plot
  • Estimating EUR with various empirical methods
  • Capacitance-Resistance Model (CRM) formulations for different control volumes
  • Introduction to spreadsheet program
  • Understanding reservoir connectivity and aquifer influx at individual wells
  • Probabilistic performance forecasting

Shah Kabir is a global reservoir engineering advisor at Hess Corporation in Houston. His experience spans more than 30 years in the areas of transient-pressure testing, fluid- and heat-flow modeling in wellbores, and reservoir engineering. Kabir coauthored the 2002 SPE book Fluid Flow and Heat Transfer in Wellbores and contributed to the 2009 SPE Monograph Transient Well Testing. Kabir has served on various SPE committees, including the editorial review committees for SPE Production & Facilities, SPE Reservoir Evaluation & Engineering, and SPE Journal. He was a 2006–2007 SPE Distinguished Lecturer and became a Distinguished Member in 2007, and he received the 2010 Reservoir Description and Dynamics Award.

Kabir holds an MSc in chemical engineering from the University of Calgary.
