Integrated Production Modeling - Module 2 (Project)SPRO/PRODOPT2GB

Who should attend?

  • This course provides a thorough understanding, as well as the methodology and tools to model and optimize production through an integrated case study.
Audience :
  • 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.

Level : Proficiency

Course Content

  • FIELD PRESENTATION - OBJECTIVES OF THE PROJECT

  • BUILDING THE RESERVOIR MODEL

      • MBAL™ 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 MBAL™ aiming to reproduce the parameters given in the PVT report.
  • WELL PERFORMANCE

      • Using PROSPER™, 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

      • Using GAP™, 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

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 (IPM™, MBAL™, PROSPER™, GAP™),
  • apply integrated modeling using the mentioned tools.

Ways & 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 (IPM™, MBAL™, PROSPER™, GAP™).
