  • The oil and gas industry, notably the completion activity, with its distributed sensors, optical fibers, permanent downhole gauges, sealed-wellbore pressure monitoring, and microseismic, has generated a fantastic amount of data, which has increasingly been properly refined and processed, producing more information—and more oil.
  • Since the beginning, well completion and stimulation strategies have always sought to optimize water management and, extending the concept, management of all fluids produced.
