The papers that I included this month demonstrate real measurable efficiency gains and advantages, often processing volumes of data that previously could not be managed by conventional means. Performance measurement and drilling automation are two such examples, and the papers referenced this month, both as synopses and listed for further reading, fall into this categ…
This paper presents a physics-based approach to predict sand production for various reservoir and completion types, explored through a case study of recent production wells in a sandstone reservoir development.
The authors of this paper develop a model that can predict well-risk level and provide a method to convert associated failure risk of each element in the well envelope into a tangible value.
