Oil and Gas J Sept 14 1970 1970 68:88, 93-94
The results of applying the least squares principles to the solution of the constants of the arps equation and then the use of these constants in the equation to predict the production decline are presented in this article. In a computer study of the applicibility of the arps equation to California oilfields, the equation was found to be applicable to less than half the fields. Other findings are also presented.
