Well schematics show possible horizontal and vertical well completions for a gas hydrate production well employing the depressurization technique.


Reserve Estimation Methods – Decline Curve

PetroSharp | Document | 2017

A decline curve of a well is simply a plot of the well’s production rate on the y-axis versus time on the x-axis. The plot is usually done on a semilog paper; i.e. the y-axis is logarithmic and the x-axis is linear. When the data plots as a straight line, it is modeled with a constant percentage de...
