D FIELD PRODUCTION OPTIMIZATION


  • ReO: ReO is a simulation and optimization solution for surface networks incorporating everything from individual wellhead performance to the macro-details of the processing plant. ReO simulates the total production system behavior and provides essential information on current operating conditions and asset performance. Concurrently, ReO optimizes the user defined economic model and generates alternative production system management strategies, which typically result in substantial production increases and simultaneous reductions in operating cost.

This allows integrated production forecasting and optimization from reservoir to delivery point. ReO Forecast is an essential tool to provide a view of how the asset will perform in the future and how this varies with changes in development and investment decisions. These forecasts are as accurate as possible and therefore the results are extensively used to make rational investment decisions about the development of both green and brown field assets.

  • I-DO: i-DO links real-time downhole, surface, and corporate data sources to ensure that reservoir, well, and facility models are constantly monitored and updated to reflect actual operating conditions. The i-DO calculation engine then simultaneously optimizes hundreds of critical parameters. The system can handle very complex producing networks having hundreds of wells or a single well's information. The ability to gather and interpret data online as well as implement many of the changes electronically means production optimization can be sustained effectively with minimum manpower and expense. The key advantage of the system is keeping the asset operating at peak performance. i-DO is used on a daily basis to manage mature assets and make operational decisions. The system integrates production data management and reservoir modeling with transient pressure analysis, well modeling, and surface network modeling and optimization. The system can be applied without modification to a wide range of production optimization problems, including downhole controls in smart wells and intelligent completions.

Getting it right is the key to optimizing production from gas lifted wells and fields. Existing modeling tools and approaches simulate gas lift in terms of a steady state solution and make sweeping assumptions about the performance of the valves and the completion. DynaLift addresses the opportunity to improve the performance of gas lifted wells through a better understanding of the gas lift unloading process combined with detailed performance modeling of valves. The DynaLift package is a Windows® based application encapsulating many years of experience in gas lift valve performance modeling and design. It allows the user to build a comprehensive model of the well, completion, operating conditions, and reservoir. DynaLift simulates the step-by-step process of unloading a gas lifted well by calculating the detailed physical parameters in time steps as unloading progresses.
