Applications of intelligent wells - PetroWiki


Since the inception of the technology in the late 1990s, the use of intelligent well technology has focused on production acceleration, increased ultimate recovery, reduced operating expenditure (opex) and reduced project level capital expenditure (capex). The following examples illustrate applications in which this technology has been deployed. Using optimization, the strong lateral is restricted and more chance is giving for the weak one. This cannot be obtained without a downhole valve and surface control in addition to modeling. Objective Achieve production increase based on DTS analysis.
