An integrated solution uses reservoir surveillance and intelligent wells to reduce uncertainties about compartmentalization, deliverability and vertical communication.
Operators are realizing that automation of wells with intelligent systems can lead to field-wide efficiencies beyond what is achieved in standard practice.
On behalf of industry sponsors, a university-led project is developing ways to recognize, quantify and increase added value from intelligent well systems.
An intelligently completed dual-injection well offshore Norway uses optical flowmeters and downhole control valves.
In addition to the latest technology on exhibition, one of the world's largest oil and gas events will feature keynote speakers and a Heavy Oil Forum.
Imaging, using vertically paired streamers and sometimes paired sources, can be better for acoustically fast formations, such as those found in the Faeroes basin.
Part 2—Fourteen downhole and surface system developments from 11 companies are reviewed for ESP and other artificial lift-related operations.
Part 1 of this three-part comprehensive review of Conformance Engineering looks at the process of understanding the problem and generating a solution.
When there is sufficient reservoir knowledge, and a previous project can serve as a model, fast-tracking can help companies to make good decisions quickly.
