Flowing Gas Analysis
With the Flowing Gas Analysis program, a user can evaluate the performance of producing gas or gas-injection wells. The program enables the user to calculate flowing bottomhole pressures (FBHP) for gas wells. The application also automatically computes associated backpressure equation parameters and displays a traditional log-log backpressure curve at the user's option. For producing wells, absolute open flow (AOF) potential is also calculated. Static bottomhole pressure (SIBHP) can be determined from shut-in tubing pressure (SITP). The application integrates techniques derived from Cullender-Smith and Turner, Hubbard and Dukler (1969). Ryder Scott modified those algorithms for today's high-speed computers.
