Use Cases  /  Gas Breakthrough Prediction

Situation

Maintain Reservoir Pressure

As a form of secondary and tertiary production, gas injection is often applied on wells to maintain reservoir pressure for the remaining petroleum while boosting the production.

Challenge

Evaluate Possible Breakthrough

Gas breakthrough issues are frequently observed in a fractured reservoir. To optimize the recovery processes during gas injections it can be a critical factor to properly evaluate the likelihood of a possible breakthrough of the offset well locations.

PetroVisor Solution

Detect Gas Breakthrough

Detects gas breakthrough based on Chan diagnostics. The developed solution utilizes user-defined threshold from GOR values, the trend, and its derivative of GOR and assigns different probabilities to detect gas breakthrough based on the values of the aforementioned input elements.

Added Value Gained

Exceptional Reporting System

The solution provides an exceptional reporting system to the user and notifies when there is a high probability for gas breakthrough to take the necessarily corrective actions.
