PetroVisor App : Artificial Lift Optimization

Artificial Lift Optimization

Developed to enhance operational efficiency and increase production gain for upstream oil and gas operations. 


Artificial Lift Optimization

Artificial lift operation needs continual monitoring and adjustment in order to function effectively. Optimization is challenging due to the complexity of distribution network limitations, plant interactions, wellbore, and reservoir issues. Because of the changing status of the field and individual well circumstances, repeating the optimization procedure becomes much more challenging.

The PetroVisor Artificial Lift Optimization App helps to minimize production delays by performing key computations utilizing analytical, data-driven, and physics-based automated workflows. There are also optimization-related services offered for the most common forms of artificial lift systems, such as electric submersible pumps, rod pumps, progressive cavity pumps, plunger lifts, gas lift systems, and jet pumps.


A Simplified Approach to Artificial Lift Optimization

data and analytics in real-time with machine learning

App Workflows & Features

Forecast 40-year individual-well monthly production for all producing phases on all wells with a multi-pass, rule & regression-based workflow.  Utilize the 3-parameter hyperbolic equation (Arp’s) with an exponential tail with numerous user-defined guides that can be area and formation dependent.  Includes gap, rework and outlier detection and handling. Forecasts are easily edited in a dynamic interactive editing window which also allows additional decline segments to be imposed.

Calculate numerous production-based Key Performance Indicators including IP90, IP365, production-based primary phase determination, recent secondary phase yields, etc.

Use ML and SCADA to track well performance vs expectations, notifying operational staff when wells begin to experience production issues.

Calculate the oil, gas and water production on perforation level from the production on well level using the kh-method.

Identify underperforming wells based on the comparison of production and monthly targets and production thresholds.


App Benefits

PetroVisor unifies performance monitoring and surveillance approaches, as well as complicated (predictive analytics) solutions such as the computation of surface and subsurface related KPIs, while guaranteeing consistent data access, automated reporting choices, and ongoing optimization. This method increases field production and financial benefit while prolonging the life of operations and ultimately recovering the reservoirs.

Performance Monitoring

The app, which provides automatic performance monitoring of any chosen measures and is linked to an alert system, enables the base to shift from a reactive to a proactive operating strategy, resulting in early identification of faults and preventing production deferral.

Identify Underperforming Wells

Automation capabilities minimize the time and effort required for manual well assessment by delivering a smart advisory solution with rated well prospects that are underperforming and require further examination.

Link Surface to Subsurface Data

The ability to link surface and subsurface-related components in real-time allows for the identification of the underlying cause of difficulties and prospective problems, as well as the provision of the best countermeasures to the end-user.

PetroVisor Platform Architecture

PetroVisor allows your team to utilize the applications and analytics tools they already know and love while accessing data that lives anywhere by connecting to any source of data, whether it's on-premise, in the cloud, or across a hybrid cloud environment.
