Production system services & experience

PSE’s experienced consultants provide expert turnkey services to our clients for production modelling and optimisation.

Our regular production optimisation service allows the operator to maintain optimal production with minimum resource use on their part. This can increase production values by tens of millions of dollars per month, depending on the nature of the field

Typical service

A typical service includes:

  • Data gathering
  • Model building
  • Model update to reflect new well test data and field changes
  • Recommendations for optimisation of the field’s production
  • Troubleshooting scenarios to account for system upsets
  • Assistance with strategy planning
  • Regular meetings for report-back.

Typical deliverables

Typical project deliverables are:

  • Report of the optimal solution ensuring that all constraints are met
  • Recommendations for field enhancements to further increase production
  • Updated well and network models for troubleshooting
  • Model delivery for ongoing optimisation within your organisation.

A service can be conducted as either a one-off study or on a regular basis to free up your engineers to perform other important activities.

Experience

PSE has conducted a number of field studies in this area. A selection of these is:

Gulf of Mexico: Oil & Gas offshore

  • 10-20 wells; gas lift and routing options
  • Production increase of 6% over current conditions by better utilisation of riser base gas lift gas and re-routing

North Sea: Oil & Gas offshore

  • 15-20 wells; gas lift routing options
  • Production increase of 7% over current conditions by better utilisation of gas lift gas and re-routing

North Sea: Oil & Gas offshore

  • 25-30 wells; gas lift, no routing
  • Production increase of 2.5% over current conditions by better utilisation of gas lift gas
  • Automatically selecting and changing 3 gas lifted wells showed the same benefit as changing all gas lifted wells with current software

Asia: Gas condensate onshore

  • 100-120 wells and ~1 million routing decisions
  • Production increase of 11% with new routing and well status over existing technology

Asia: Oil & Gas offshore

  • 20-30 wells; gas lifted and no routing
  • Production increase of 5% over current technology with different allocation of gas lift gas

Africa: Oil & Gas offshore

  • 20-30 wells; naturally flowing but complex routing
  • Production increase of 10% with optimised routing strategy

Middle East: Oil & Gas onshore

  • Optimisation of the GOSP system and associated transfer lines
