Automated Work Flow Identifies Opportunities for Production, Cost Improvements
The complete paper describes a combination of best practices and innovative techniques that help to provide rig-based and rigless opportunities by estimating potential and risk in a naturally fractured reservoir.
An intensive effort is required to identify the right candidates and to ensure the technical and economic success of well interventions, infill-drilling locations, and sidetrack locations. An accelerated method for selection of existing wells for workovers and sidetracks would be of great value. A work flow is developed to automate tasks such as data gathering and validation. The solution allows integrated assessment of production-enhancement opportunities through consistent analytic computations and machine-learning techniques including Bayesian networks and time-series forecasting models.
Automated Data Integration
The advisory system starts with data integration and work-flow automation steps.
