PetroVisor App : Enhanced Oil Recovery Optimization

Enhanced Oil Recovery Optimization

Enhanced oil recovery optimization allows for real-time improvement of production and injection networks, that aim to boost asset performance while maximizing economic success rates.


Enhanced Oil Recovery Optimization

PetroVisor provides a digital cortex that increases profitability by lowering operational risks and expenses. The platform can incorporate both subsurface and surface-related components, such as well and reservoir restrictions. Waterflooding and enhanced oil recovery activities are being augmented by digital technologies that monitor, surveil, and optimize operational and technical choices to achieve production and injection objectives while also increasing field recovery and economic advantages.


A Simplified Approach to Enhanced Oil Recovery

all related data in a single, unified data layer for consistent answers


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.

When geologic data is available, calculate numerous reservoir-based Key Performance Indicators including landing zone %-tile, net pay, porosity, porosity-thickness, etc.

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

Calculates Hall and Hearn data to determinate the current state of the well (normal, wellbore plugging, and fracturing, pressure interference, fracture extension, water channeling). Can send notifications based upon changes in the well behavior.

Calculate PVT properties for oil, gas and water using Vasquez and Beggs,  Levitan and Murtha and Beggs and Robinson methods. Outputs oil and gas correlations such as Oil Bubble Point  Pressure, Formation Volume Factor Oil, Formation Volume Factor Gas and more.

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.

Estimate the liquid production rate of naturally flowing wells and ESP wells.

Calculates the instantaneous voidage replacement ratio (VRR) and the cumulative voidage replacement ratio for each layer. Tag entries are created if the VRR exceeds or falls below certain thresholds.

Detect water breakthrough based on water cut threshold violations.


App Benefits

To function correctly, EOR techniques need continual attention and optimization, which is made more difficult by the changing state of the field and individual well circumstances. PetroVisor secures the solution to this problem by utilizing data analytics and automated solutions to perform the necessary computations and visualize the output, resulting in a foundation for quick decision-making and improved field & well performance in order to meet the desired production targets.

Monitoring, Surveillance, and Optimization

PetroVisor enables for the simultaneous monitoring, surveillance, and optimization of numerous entities such as reservoirs, wells (producers and injectors), equipment, or any user-defined entity that may be combined with a built-in alert system depending on production/injection performance. The automated solutions may operate in tandem, allowing for real-time operational, engineering, and asset choices.

Full Integration of Surface & Subsurface Data

Full integration of surface and subsurface-related components with any chosen time increments enables the implementation of reservoir models, scheduling rules, and field and/or well dependant restrictions. The app can save time and effort by developing and protecting a standardized data set that includes the connectivity of numerous independent sources and a decision platform.

Well, Pattern, and Reservoir Analysis

In addition to improved decision-making, the app allows for well, pattern, and reservoir analysis. The results of the study may be saved and used to help engineers focus on and identify low-performing wells, trends, or reservoirs that may require countermeasures, allowing for ongoing improvement throughout the whole field.
