PHDWin / Instructor Celia Houston

PHDWin™ is a full featured economic and decline curve analysis program that runs on Microsoft™ Windows™ operating systems. PHDWin provides powerful and cost effective production decline curves. This powerful program integrates interactive decline curve and material balance graphics with one of the best economic engines in the industry. The perfect solution for engineers, geologists, and executives who need to effectively organize, manage, and evaluate production and economic data.

This class is designed to give users an understanding of moving around in PHDWin--from evaluating a lease to scheduling automated group (platform) economics and creating summary reports. The classes will involve using all Editor windows found in PHDWin, as well as teach users to maximize PHDWin's graphical capabilities, including segment manipulation and curve fitting. All basic functionality of lease-level applications and global applications are covered, which leads nicely into generating lease-level and summary-level economics. The Lease List can now be used to generate groupings and subtotals to drive dynamic summarization capabilities for reporting. Dynamic groupings and subtotals are created using the sorts and filters found in the lease list. Exporting data and importing data from a variety of formats will also be covered. The classes are open to anyone, and require no previous knowledge of using PHDWin.

Class Enrollment Limited to 13 Students.
