PHDWin Software Crash Course Part 1 Study Guide

1.) Barrels & Dollars

1 – Estimate volumes of oil and gas (reserves)

  • Decline curve analysis (producing wells)
  • Volumetrics (producing wells, proposed wells)
  • Material balance
  • Simulation
  • Analogy

2 – Estimate the value of the reserves

  • Future cashflows $$ (economics) PHDWin – software tool
  • Discounted cashflow (NPV, PV, PW) 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, 50% etc
    • $ / barrel
    • $ / flowing BOPD
    • $ / acre

2.) Production Data

• Monthly oil, gas, water
• Daily data
• Test data
• Lease production (multiple wells)
• Allocated vs unallocated
• Days on production
• Estimated water
• Public data, state websites RRC, DOC, Miss O&G Board
• Client / operator provided
• Commercial sources, DrillingInfo, IHS Energy

3.) PHDWin Database Creation & Setup

List of PHDWin Database Case Variables:

• As of date
• Max economic life
• Discount rates
• Sort orders
• Filters
• ID codes
• Graph titles

4.) Well Ownership

All reserves cases must have the correct ownership data
Producing wells
Shut in wells
Proposed wells

Sources:

• Operator / owner
• Check stubs
• LOS (Lease operating statements)
