RTA for Production Engineers - Simple Techniques to Quantify Uplift Potential
Sometimes the best ideas come from outside our industry. Other times, they are just outside our discipline. While RTA is used ubiquitously by reservoir engineers working unconventional reservoirs, it is commonly underutilized by production engineers, despite its value to help them optimize production. One reason for this is that reservoir engineers are often the only ones given budget for RTA training and another is that even when the production engineers are present, the workshops are generally not tailored to meet their objectives, so a lot of its usefulness for them goes unrecognized.

The purpose of this two part webinar series is to focus on the RTA applications of interest to production engineers in order to:
1) Further promote multi-disciplinary collaboration and
2) Show that RTA is not just for reservoir engineers

Lessons will be delivered from our panel of technical experts, gathered across the operator, service, and academic communities. Case studies will be presented from a variety of unconventional formations, fluid phase environments and production operations.
