In this video I demonstrate how to load production and well header data for use in a decline curve analysis project.
The first step is to gather your data. You’ll need:
- Production data – this can be in CSV, Excel, or IHS 298 formats. For spreadsheet formats you’ll need columns for API, Date, Oil, Gas, Water (optional), and days of production for that period (optional).
- Well header data – this can be in CSV, Excel, or IHS 297 formats. For spreadsheet data you’ll need columns for API, WH Latitude, and WH Longitude. There are several optional fields for BH Latitude and Longitude, Spud Date, Operator, Formation, Well Status, and more.
Example data is available here:
Load the data as shown in the video by either right-clicking on a folder or using the File menu, and selecting the option to upload production or well header data.
