Well Performance Comparison: The Benefits of Integrated Data Visualization & Analysis

Modern seismic, drilling, and production technologies allow petroleum engineers to generate or acquire substantial volumes of data that characterize well performance—from initial exploration up to yesterday’s production metrics. These data can provide valuable insight when reservoir engineers are considering wells to be drilled into offset prospects or wells drilled to extend an existing producing reservoir.…

The Use of Tracers in Oil and Gas Industry for Better Reservoir Surveillance

Tracer technology for the oil and gas industry has become an increasingly important tool for reservoir surveying and monitoring. Tracers can help portray reservoir characteristics more clearly, depict fluid pathways, reveal communication—planned or unexpected—between wells, and provide better estimates of remaining oil saturation. Tracer technology in oil and gas has become indispensable for showing fluid…

How Leveraging a Digital Oilfield Leads to Improved Operations

A mechanical issue in a well is a common occurrence, but issues found in more than one well could indicate a larger problem within the reservoir. To avoid reservoir dilemmas that can hamper well-placement strategies and incur long-term costs, analysts need a complete visual of the reservoir. To prevent operational stalls, analysts also need accessible…

Well Stimulation: The Importance of Data Visualization and Analysis

Well stimulation is a highly technical and precise solution to decreased reservoir flow and production resulting from the accumulation of particles and fluids near the wellbore or formation damage resulting from the well drilling and completion process. Vital to the industry, well stimulation is a necessary intervention intended to enhance permeability and improve the flow…

How to Increase Oil Well Production Through Reservoir Analytics

  When determining how to increase oil well production, analysts must consider the ways in which production can be improved through reservoir analytics. By analyzing surface and subsurface data, potential roadblocks—such as sediment clogging, condensate blocks, and reservoir compartmentalization—that stymie production can be reduced or even eliminated.  To thoroughly visualize such issues, analysts should rely…

An Integrated Approach to Seismic Forward Modeling

Seismic forward modeling is an important step to better understand complex subsurface conditions when using 3D, and especially 4D, seismic data. However, to fully appreciate the impact of the modeling results, data integration is required to set the findings in their full and correct context. Analysts are well aware of the challenges of sifting through…
