NODAL Analysis Workshop


Duration: 16 hours instructor-led, plus approximately 22 hours self-paced work


Well Inflow/ Outflow NODAL™ Analysis is an integral part of a production or completion engineer’s work scope, and is often applied throughout a well’s life to maximize value - from the beginning of the completion design process through underperforming well diagnostics. This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of this analysis technique, emphasizing real world application through multiple problems from different perspectives.
