Optimizing production in maximum reservoir contact wells ///

In today’s drive to improve well production and performance, more innovative methods are continually being implemented to enhance well productivity and reservoir management. By increasing reservoir contact and applying fit for purpose technologies, increased production can be attained at lower drawdown. In multilateral wells equipped with active downhole control valves and downhole measurement devices, monitoring and managing the production from each lateral is achievable. These capabilities enhance well performance and allow better sweep; hence better recovery. This article describes the design, completion, commissioning and operational experience of the world’s first Maximum Reservoir Contact (MRC) well equipped with an intelligent completion, combined with fiber optic monitoring capabilities.
