The objective of production optimization is to maximize the total oil/gas production rate and to minimize the total cost of operation. For single wells or other small systems, simple well optimization and nodal analysis may be adequate but large complex systems demand a much more sophisticated approach to predict the response accurately and to examine alternative operational scenarios efficiently.

Below are the areas covered under production optimization design of a well and the associated production system:

Production Analysis:

Identify change in production of a well and suggest corrective actions for improvement.

Well Performance Monitoring

Well performance is monitored and compared to its initial / best performance.

Well Optimization:

Using the Well model, the production parameters of oil and gas wells can be optimized.

Field optimization:

Using integrated models of reservoirs, well & surface facilities, the production rate of each well is optimized to get the maximum total productivity of the field or the desired production.

Integrated Asset Modeling involves the conventional stages of Model characterization, Model calibration/Initialization and Predictions and Forecasting. Essentially, the models are built for each important component, tuned to mimic the actual production process and then used for Production optimization, scenario analysis and Production forecasting. Our Integrated Asset Modelling approach can be illustrated as follows:

Well Test is a tool for reservoir evaluation and characterization. It helps in defining reservoir limits (distances to boundaries and drainage area), estimate average drainage area pressure, characterize reservoir (permeability, skin factor, dual porosity or layered behaviour), diagnose productivity problems and evaluate stimulation treatment effectiveness (fracture conductivity, fracture half-length)

Pressure Transient Analysis:

iOG software solutions provides accurate and reliable design and analysis of pressure transients from traditional production and drill stem tests (DST), as well as from the wire line formation tests (WFT) and testing-while-drilling (TWD) operations on exploration, appraisal or production of wells. The test objectives at any stage range from simple measurement of reservoir pressure to complex characterization of reservoir features. On this basis, PTA is classified as either productivity well tests or descriptive reservoir tests.

Various well pressure transient testing techniques are employed based on the stage of the field life:

  • Standard and Mini Drill Stem Testing: A procedure for isolating and testing the pressure, permeability and productive capacity of a geological formation
  • Wireline Formations Testers: Formation testers provide alternatives to conventional well testing. E.g. Modular Formation Dynamic Tester (MDT)
  • Testing While Drilling
  • Production, Injection and Interference Tests
  • Permanent Down Hole Gauges: Continuously monitor well and reservoir pressure changes
  • Time Lapse Well Testing: Can be used to monitor changing fluid saturations in these reservoirs

iOG provides the following Well test interpretation services:

  • Well test Design and Planning
  • Models and analysis methods for wireline formation tests
  • Multi-layer test analysis with flow profiles from production logs
  • Prediction option to forecast future productivity of the well based on the current analysis model
