Abstract

A simple and effective method of the gas rate prediction from temperature and pressure data is discussed in this paper. Solving the inverse problem allows determination of the flow rate by matching the gas pressure and temperature distributions with measured profiles. Results of field data treatment show good agreement with the model prediction.
