Our intuitive, user friendly decline curve analysis tool will help you attain new levels of productivity, so you can:

  • Review previous forecast vs actual production.
  • Create conventional and unconventional decline curve forecasts using Arp’s, Doung, hyperbolic, stretched exponential and other methodologies.
  • Create multi-segment production forecasts.
  • Define auto reversion from hyperbolic.
  • Quickly switch among multiple analysis templates.
  • Utilize P/Z, rate cum, water cut, ratios, custom templates and more.
  • Interactively analyze economic limit, EUR and remaining reserves.

Allowing you to:

  • Improve forecast confidence using the proper diagnostic tools and the appropriate DCA methodologies
  • Create quick, normalized type wells
  • Let the type-well utility simplify stochastic generation of probabilistic type wells

Type Wells and Well Scheduling

Would you like to quickly group wells, normalize them and create various type wells? 

Type wells can be created using just the history, or the history and forecasts.  In addition to creating and saving multiple type wells, you can also create P10, P50, and P90 versions and use any of them with our Well Scheduler tool to quickly develop drilling plans and development scenarios.
