A fast-moving pressure pulse is the priority of a research and development initiative that, if successful, will result in a new diagnostic technology for horizontal wells in tight reservoirs.
This paper describes an artificial-lift technology, a subsurface compressor system, that simultaneously removes liquids, increases gas production, and improves recoverable reserves in gas wells.
In reviewing the long list of papers this year, it has become apparent to me that the hot topic in reservoir simulation these days is the application of data analytics or machine learning to numerical simulation and with it quite often the promise of data-driven work flows—code for needing to think about the physics less.
