Aucerna’s Analog Forecasting™ is Unique to Val Nav

Join us for a Live 30 minute Webinar followed by a 15 minute Q&A Session.

The rate-time profile used to evaluate new unconventional wells is usually based on an average of similar wells, captured as a type well. In practice, the drilled wells seldom look like the type well. In hind casting studies, Aucerna’s engineers have tested Val Nav’s Analog Forecasting™ on wells that do not have enough history to decline. Wells drilled over a 12-month period were forecast for up to an additional three years. When compared to actual production, the difference in recovery was less than 9%. Attend the webinar to learn how this technique, unique to Val Nav, can not only improve the quality of your forecasts, but also free up your time.
