Abstract The Basic program described was designed for an IBM PC computer. The program converts tubing pressures to bottom hole conditions and uses a simplified solution that is as accurate as the more sophisticated methods available. It works for either dry gas or gas condensate wells. Input variables include: well depth; gas gravity; condensate API gravity and yield; tubing diameter; absolute roughness of pipe; gas flow rate; temperature; and tubing pressure. The features of this program include calculations of static or flowing bottom hole pressures, critical pressure and temperature, gas deviation factor, gas viscosity, and friction factor. Petroleum engineering applications of the program are listed and include: absolute open flow calculations; inflow performance analysis; BHP/Z calculations for reserve analysis; and compressor design.
