Reservoir & Production Engineering
Reservoir and Production engineering is the key for optimal and most
efficient development and production of oil and gas reservoirs, keeping in view
the health of the reservoir by utilizing the best available technologies in a
cost efficient manner.
Oilfield Knowledge provides following services under the umbrella of
reservoir and production engineering.
- Reservoir Studies:This includes
designing and executing PVT studies from sample collection to analysis, core
analysis, guidance to acquire reservoir surveillance data like Production logs,
RST, flowing pressures, shut-in pressures, estimation of reservoir pressure,
pressure build up studies, Injectivity tests, pressure fall off studies, tracer
- Classical Reservoir Engineering: Our reservoir evaluation center experts are well experienced in all CRE’s, for example Material Balance, Decline curve analysis, Nodal analysis, Pressure and Rate Transient analysis, analytical models for all recovery drive mechanisms and Monte Carlo Simulation.
- Reservoir Simulation: This service includes
building a numerical model from static model. The numerical model can be a
simple black oil model to a complex compositional model with discrete natural
fractures. Apart from building a new model, the existing old model, if any can
also be used for history matching and prediction.
- Reserves Estimation: Under the SEC
and SPE-PRMS guidelines, the reserves estimation service is provided by
integrating the reservoir numerical model results, with analytical studies like
decline curve analysis, analytical models, rate transient analysis and material
balance, for reservoirs under primary, secondary and tertiary recovery
- Appraisal, Pilot Studies,Field Development Planning with Project
Economics: The key to any successful field
development is a successful appraisal or a pilot study. This service can
provide extensive support in planning and execution of appraisal, development
and infill wells with type of artificial lift requirements and pilot studies
and full field implementation for optimized recovery mechanism, considering the
- Unconventional and Hydraulic Fracturing:As the industry in moving towards tight and unconventional
reservoirs, hydraulic fracturing becomes important. This service provides the
well type requirements, type of hydraulic fracturing job and schedule for
maximum stimulated rock volume and maximum recovery factor. Hydraulic
fracturing job service includes pre job modeling to post job pressure match,
DFIT, Mini frac, Main Frac, Step rate analysis and post frac flow-back
monitoring. This service can be extended to workflows required to develop
unconventional reservoirs, as the workflows used for unconventional reservoirs
are different than conventional reservoirs.
- Enhanced Oil Recovery: EOR is now
becoming very useful as it can improve the recovery factors from <10% to
>40% depending on the type of reservoirs. This service includes screening of
EOR methods based on the field data and ranking them as per project economics.
After screening of EOR methods, the service can be extended to proposing the
lab studies, followed by pilot studies to gauge the level of expected increment
due to proposed EOR method.
- Production optimization:The result
of this service is improved well production and reservoir management either by
drawdown management, artificial lift modeling and optimization, surface
facilities debottlenecking, backpressure optimization and injection rate and
pattern optimization. Also includes revival of sick wells, reasons of the wells
- Data Analytics:The industry is
having a radical shift towards artificial intelligence and machine learning. Our
technical consultants have created some workflows to identify reservoir units
based on log response, to forecast production based on the existing wells, to
aid in well placement and identify any integrity issue before hand. Apart from
the available workflows, the team has the ability to create new workflows based
on the client’s requirements.
- Project Management: A complete
project management solution by people from oil and gas background and
experience from drilling to surface facilities. The services can include
scheduling and tracking each and every detail associated with the project,
providing weekly updates, action items and trackers for stakeholders. On-ground
execution for no lapses in time or safety.
