Smart Production Monitoring Enabled by Virtual Well Metering0.1 credits offered Includes a Live Event on 04/25/2019 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Virtual Metering technology has been used in offshore oil and gas wells for over a decade with great success. They provide a cost-effective, yet reliable solution to monitor production continuously. They also serve as ready back-up to “physical” multiphase meters, which are both expensive and less reliable.
Using Machine Learning to Optimize Completion Design0.15 credits offered Includes a Live Event on 05/01/2019 at 9:30 AM (EDT)
As the industry moves to more complex multi-pad, multi-well completion designs, intelligent completion optimization will require more sophisticated algorithms to improve the decision-making process. This is where the use of analytics and AI can directly drive efficiencies to unlock the production potential of unconventional reservoirs specifically during hydraulic fracturing. The growing volume and availability of completion and production data creates a revolutionary situation where building reservoir potential maps, planning pads and optimizing completion designs begins to benefit from the use of AI methods.
