Prediction of Reservoir Performance Applying Decline Curve Analysis

Khulud M. Rahuma, H. Mohamed, N. Hissein, and S. Giuma
Abstract—Decline curve analysis is a technique can be applied to a single well, and total reservoir. Decline analysis routinely used by engineers to estimate initial hydrocarbon in place, hydrocarbon reserves at some abandonment conditions, and forecasting future production rate. The remaining reserve depends on the production points that selected to represent the real well behavior, the way of dealing with the production data, and the human errors that might happen during the life of the field. In this study the actual oil rate technique is applied under decline curve analysis (D.C.A) program, and screening data points to calculate remaining and recoverable reserves.

Index Terms—Decline curve, production history, initial decline rate, remaining reserve, scenario.
