Decline curve analysis (DCA) is one of the oldest methodologies used by production and reservoir engineers to predict future production, calculate reserves and estimate ultimate recovery, and it is fundamental to economic valuation of oil and gas assets. In practice, DCA is usually performed using deterministic tools that provide a unique solution ignoring the probabilistic nature of the production data due to measurement and back allocation errors.
Leveraging state-of-the-art machine learning and data assimilation approaches with traditional and advanced decline models , Tachyus’ Probabilistic Decline Curve Analysis (pDCA) creates an ensemble of models to automatically fit the historical data and estimate future production and reserves in a probabilistic manner providing P10-P50-P90 estimates of these entities. Additionally, Tachyus pDCA automatically identifies and removes outliers, improving the accuracy of the models, can also correct for BHP variations and results can be aggregated to arbitrary groups of wells.
