Product Streams Management

Production Allocation

Pipe-It Production Allocation facilitates accurate partner revenue sharing through detailed compositional modeling of produced hydrocarbon streams from point of sale to reservoir, well, and perforation level.

Pipe-It Production Allocation Solution gives a detailed and up to date overview of your entire production system and enable more informed decisions based on consistent and accurate data.

This solution estimates the contribution of the field production of oil and gas to individual wells. Well tests and any other measured production data is used to estimate producing wellstream composition for individual wells. Compositional wellstreams are aggregated and processed through process simulation models representing the process facilities to yield accurate calculated sales product rates. Calculated and measured sales product rates are compared, and individual well contributions to the sales products are allocated, enabling accurate distribution of revenues between license partners.

Integration

Tie-In Evaluation

Pipe-It Tie-In Evaluation enables accurate modeling of the effects of tying in a new field to existing infrastructure and the impact this has throughout the entire value chain.

Interactions between the production from new tie-in fields and the production from existing fields can be complex and non-intuitive. The whole value chain can be affected in terms of quality of the final products, capacity limitations in shared facilities, and flow assurance issues. These effects are difficult to model manually. To see the full picture, all parts of the production system need to be brought together within an integrated asset model.

Pipe-It Tie-in Evaluation can be used to get a detailed overview of the effects potential tie-in fields have on the entire value chain. Determine the impact tie-ins will have on total asset economics, shared facilities, and final product quality.

Reservoir-Network Integration

Pipe-It Reservoir to Network Integration consistently connects any reservoir model(s) with pipeline network models to account for surface constraints to optimally adjust reservoir rate controls.

Reservoir management involves setting rules for well and group rates as a function of time to ensure best possible recovery from the reserves. Often such well rates run into bottlenecks on the surface facility and network system since their effect is not adequately handled by the reservoir models.

This solution bridges the gap by evaluating the surface constraints at user-defined time steps and letting the reservoir management update the model well and group controls accordingly to achieve a better forecast for the field, incorporating surface limitations.

Diluent Injection Optimization

Pipe-It Diluent Injection Optimization provides a customized solution for diluent injection optimization. Using Pipe-It, any model/software that represents each of the nodes in the production value chain – from well to market – can be integrated.

A consistent stream conversion technology allows Pipe-It to handle different fluid models, making it possible to quantify the effects of diluent injection on the entire production system and value chain.

Heavy oil represents a large portion of the world hydrocarbon resources, but high density and viscosity makes it difficult and costly to produce. Diluent injection is a viable alternative not only to help lift fluids to surface and reduce pressure drops in transport pipe lines, but also to increase the quality of export oil to become a marketable product.

This integrated solution for diluent injection optimization reduces cost by minimizing the amount of diluent needed to be imported, and maximizes production by optimally distributing diluent among wells.

History Matching and Forecasting

Production from horizontal multi-fractured shale wells is associated with significant uncertainty. Simplified analytical models often fail to accurately describe well performance.

History Matching and Forecasting from Petrostreamz is based on a detailed numerical finite difference well model. The history match is conducted on readily available data and the history matched model can be used to study and optimize a range of well management and design issues.

Liquid Yield Optimization/ Choke Control

In under saturated gas condensate assets typically found in the gas-to-oil transition window, considerable amounts of liquids may drop out of solution. These condensed liquids will remain trapped in the reservoir if the well is produced at high drawdown rates during early, high-rate production.

Pipe-It Shale Choke Control services provide an optimized drawdown strategy to maximize NPV. The optimization is based on a detailed analysis of the fluid system in the reservoir, well design parameters and expected performance from a history match of a pilot well or a nearby well.

Well Design

Optimal design of shale wells is often an expensive, trial-and-error process. Wells with different reservoir properties are completed with different well designs and the one showing best production may be misleadingly used as a guide for new well designs because variability in rock permeability is not identified.

Pipe-It Shale Well Design service couples reservoir characteristics, fracture and fluid descriptions, completion design, vertical lift models and topside economic models to arrive at the optimized design for a given section or ownership area. Net Present Value is optimized and all constraints in the system are honored to deliver a well design package with uncertainty analysis.

Refracturing Evaluation

Horizontal wells completed 2–5 years ago have hopefully paid for themselves from high, early transient production performance. Refracturing these wells can potentially lead to production on par with initial production, or better, using recent advances in proppants and fracturing technology, at far lower costs than drilling new wells.

Pipe-It Shale Refracturing Evaluation provides an objective assessment of a single well, section or field that is considered for refracturing, enabling operators to invest in wells with highest likelihood of return on investment.
