For all members,

- I will start here (in this thread) the MBAL software tutorial step by step.
- Any question related to this topic is welcome.

- The more contribution is required.

- This is a real case study.

- MBAL is the world leader in Material Balance Calculations and used in a wide range of oil and gas industry.

- This software (MBAL) is basically for reserve estimation but can be used for identification of water encroachment and other application that we can discuss further.

- If you have your own data we can make a study with each others

- Also you will find the MBAL tutorial guide manual.

- Let us start.........
