RAS for Gas

1. Orientation

RAS 2.0 is a platform that applies gas reservoir dynamic analysis, engineering calculation, production, and pressure forecasting,and diagram development. Therefore, it is suitable for gas reservoir manager and engineer from oil/gas development, Research Institution, and gas production plant.

2. Target

According to gas reservoir engineering theory and natural gas industry standards, it combines experiences with dynamic analysis regulations to build a platform for production and gas reservoir dynamic analysis. Details as follows: 

1)Track gas field/gas well production, current status of exploitation, analyze the reason of production fluctuation and development regulation, evaluate deliverability, make feasible proration plan. 

2)Analyze gas reservoir efficiency, achievement performance, and pressure/production variation. According to the problems arising during the development and production of gas reservoirs so as to make a adjustment scheme.

3)It has several common gas reservoir engineering calculation methods, which can calculate static parameter, recoverable reserves, recovery ratio, gas well deliverability, static pressure of mineshaft and forecast development indicator.

4)Support dynamic and reservoir parameter, verify each other and help engineers to have a deep understanding of gas reservoir.
