Reservoir Engineering On-line Support

RE-Support is a technical team who can provide on-line support to solve specific RE technical issues. This service is presented for clients within the Middle East region as it does not require traveling. The team will provide the technical advice either by e-mail or via phone call.
 
For further clarification about providing this service you can contact Info@genceco.com

The following are examples for these technical issues:
QA/QC needed from each discipline to continue the modelling loop
Type of integration needed between different disciplines
Issues related to well performance and design


Production Optimization Studies (POS)


POS is the process of looking to well and reservoir data and analyzes them in an integrated approach with multiple surface and subsurface disciplines. The objectives of the team who will perform such studies are to increase production, enhance recovery, while lowering costs.









Integrated Reservoir Studies (IRS)

IRS is a combination and co-ordination of separate and diverse elements or units into a more complete or harmonious method of working.
 
Therefore it is considered as a process whereby extra value is produced. In the petroleum industry, integration primarily concerned with the manner in which different disciplines efforts are combined to improve an established analytical process.






Water Management Studies (WMS)
 

Matured oil fields are basically suffering from high water production rates. Part of this water is good water and part is bad water.

WRS is a process that we can apply to diagnose where we can decrease the amount of the bad water, hence reducing the cost per barrel of oil produced.









EPTS Quick Solutions Process (EPQS)

EPQS is a process defined by a group of highly experienced people. The process consists of proprietary analysis techniques
aimed to analyzing the reservoir data on a large scale and in a short time frame.

This analysis will help the operators to select the best candidates for work-over and the best location to drill infill wells.









Reservoir Simulation Studies (RSS)

RSS is an area of reservoir engineering in which computer models are developed to model physical phenomena involved during flow in porous media. These models are essential for the understanding of reservoir processes (oil, gas and water flow). Number of methods and tools are used for this purpose, varying from commercial reservoir simulators to specially developed and dedicated models.

  Software

LYNX®
makes the history matching (HM) of reservoir simulation models faster, more reliable, easier, and more accurate while assuring consistency between the interpreted and refined source data and the simulation model.

LYNX provides the asset team with powerful analysis aids to facilitate the interactive HM process. Engineers have carried out history matching through simulation for over 40 years.

LYNX now provides the engineer with a tool that significantly streamlines and accelerates the history matching process.
Developing and history matching reservoir models is data intensive requiring petrophysics, geology, production, fluid, and rock information to be processed and interpreted into a coherent geologic and simulation model of the reservoir.
A reservoir simulator is then used to test this model against actual performance data (fluid rates, pressures, and concentrations).
Inconsistencies in the simulation model versus actual performance must be reconciled and adjustments made to the reservoir model.

LYNX provides the practical tools and workflow to review and resolve these inconsistencies quickly and to make the
necessary adjustments in a manner that is consistent with all other relevant data.
This is achieved by the property modification facilities that substantially eliminate the manual editing of the simulation data set.

LYNX is designed with a complementary set of tools for interacting with commercial


MatchingPro® is the latest innovative history matching (HM) technology from NITEC that is very easy to use, fully utilizes available computing resources, and provides fast, reliable HM solutions.
MatchingPro only requires a reservoir simulation modelcombined with historical production, injection, and pressure data to accurately and efficiently determine the best HM solution based on the selected HM parameters.

MatchingPro can function in auto or manual modes to achieve a high quality HM solution. In the MatchingPro auto mode, simulation cases are designed, run, and evaluated without user intervention. The number of simulation cases required is typically six to eight times the number of HM parameters. HM quality measurements are updated and displayed with each new simulation case that is run. The process is expedited by utilizing multiple computer CPUs, when available.

MatchingPro¡¯s cutting edge technology makes use of Artificial Neural Networks (ANN), Genetic Algorithms (GA), and statistical methods. These algorithms quickly reveal the complex relationships among the HM parameters and the simulation results (the mismatch in simulated versus historical volumes and pressures).

MatchingPro quantifies the quality of each HM case and recommends the best combination of HM parameters to achieve the best HM solution.

MatchingPro can also determine multiple HM solutions (model characterizations) and provide a quantification of their probabilities of occurrence.
Reservoir simulation is a key tool in the asset manager¡¯s quest to maximiz recoveries and enhance reserves. History matching of reservoir simulation models is a critical step in the reservoir evaluation and field development process.
