Petrobras and Shell have brought online the Lula field’s seventh FPSO as the firms continue to ramp up production from the pre-salt Santos Basin. The paper provides a fast-track approach to perform screening assessment of multiple subsea concepts. Since the first intelligent completion was installed 20 years ago, the systems have become increasingly complex in order to reach productivity and optimization goals, allowing real-time independent monitoring and management of each zone in the well. This paper describes an extended-well-test campaign using intelligent completions in a presalt reservoir. To understand reservoir behavior during production better, several options were analyzed for the first extended well test.
