What is the significance of the ‘Run Start’ in DCA for a well.   Can I change the date.


Is there a mechanism to include flush oil production after a forecasted startup.


In the DCA plot, "Run Start" gives an indication where on the well potential relationship the forecast would start from. Note that the output profile (which takes account of facility constraints, Planned Changes etc) might start later. For a well with no historical data, you can specify the well start date and this is reflected in "Run Start". For a well with historical data, the historical data fixes the well start date and the "Run Start" is at the date of the start of prediction.

There is currently no specific funtionality to model flush production, but this would be reasonably simple to introduce, if required.
