Comparative Analysis of Inflow Performance Relationships (IPRS) For Horizontal Oil Wells
Contribution to knowledge:
An application software, Well Performance Estimator (WellPerf) was developed in this study to provide an easy means of obtaining the Concavity Index of the inflow performance relationship (IPR) curve and dimensionless inflow performance relationship (dIPR) curve of a horizontal oil well. Well Perf can also be used to obtain the pessimistic and optimistic IPR curves of a horizontal oil well at a given recovery factor.
