Theories of Arps' Decline Curve Exponent and Loss Ratio, for Saturated Reservoirs
Rate decline curve analysis is an essential tool in predicting reservoir performance and in estimating reservoir properties. In its most basic form, decline curve analysis is to a large extent based on Arps’ empirical models that have little theoretical basis. The use of historical production data to predict future performance is the focus of the empirical approach of decline analysis while...
