E-507 - Integrated Production Modeling - Module 2 (Project)

  • Engineers from upstream Oil & Gas disciplines: production engineers, petroleum engineers or reservoir engineers willing to integrate reservoir with surface models using Integrated Production System technology.
  • This course provides a thorough understanding, the methodology and tools to integrate data and models from reservoir to surface facilities.
Learning Objectives
  • Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
  • predict global production through integrated modeling,
  • develop a case study aiming at building tank model, PVT match, well performance and surface network including the use of specialized software (IPMTM: MBAL™, PROSPER™, GAP™),
  • apply integrated modeling using the mentioned tools.
  • No prerequisites for this course.
Ways and means
  • 5-day work on an integrated project with deliverables to be presented the last session.
  • Coaching throughout the project by experts using a real case study: bottle necks are identified in the production system, given reservoir and fluid properties, wellbore configuration and flowing wellhead pressure; production performance is predicted from history production trends.
  • Use of professional software (IPMTM: MBALTM, PROSPERTM, GAPTM).

Field presentation – Objectives of the project 0.25 day
Building the reservoir model 1.25 days
  • MBALTM is used to build the tank model, according to the given data the production mechanisms must be identified and the history production data will be matched.
  • A PVT correlation will be tuned in MBALTM aiming to reproduce the parameters given in the PVT report.
Well performance 2 days
  • Using PROSPERTM, the well performance of five different wells will be generated (vertical, horizontal and deviated wells): IPR model, well test matching, VLP model, well deliverability.
Surface architecture 1 day
  • Using GAPTM, the following issues will be investigated:
  • Global production modeling linking MBAL™, PROSPER™ and GAP™.
  • Identify the bottle necks in the production system.
  • Optimize the surface network to meet the initial target production profile: elements in the network to be implemented, controls in chokes, manifolds, separator constraints.
  • Different solutions might be proposed to improve the production profile.
Project presentation, synthesis & wrap-up 0.5 day
