GATE Prho™: Time-lapse Nodal Analysis (TLNA)

The seamless coupling of GATE Prho™ and transient reservoir modeling has been applied to shale wells to develop the Time-lapse Nodal Analysis (TLNA) in unconventional plays to optimize the production. It predicts the well performance, analyzes the proppant effectiveness and evaluates the artificial lift method. With high number of wells in most unconventional plays, it promotes faster field-scale optimization and reduced cost by increasing the leverage achievable with limited data and modeling time.
