In the process of continuous production of natural gas wells, formation pressure and gas flow rate decrease continuously. The ability to carry liquid decreases continuously, thus gradually forming bottom hole liquid. Bottom hole liquid accumulation is an important reason for the decrease of production or shutdown of natural gas wells. How to diagnose whether there is liquid accumulation in natural gas wells and identify the degree of liquid accumulation, to adopt drainage gas recovery operation in time, is the research focus of efficient development of natural gas reservoirs. In this paper, a method for diagnosing bottom hole liquid accumulation combining production performance curve and modified Fernando inclined well critical liquid-carrying model is designed for a large scale double-branch horizontal well used in unconventional reservoirs. The method is applied to the Well X2 of He 8 Member in PCOC. The application results showed that there was no liquid accumulation in the horizontal and vertical sections of the Well X2. The liquid in the wellbore was generated at the bottom of the inclined section and the liquid accumulation is upward along the wellbore from the bottom of the inclined section, with the height of 3 m.
