Abstract

The approach takes the form of a software solution, including data transmission protocols, data extraction protocols, data mining, data processing, logic and end user interface. Distributed data is acquired on the platform, then is processed and distributed under the form of status, alarms, zone or time selected data storage. A user interface will then enable: - Providing information based on the results of the automated calculations. - Selecting the data to be analysed - Classifying the data according to meaning - Efficiently storing the data - Combining with data from another source to provide additional information The approach can be used on Producing wells, Injection wells, geothermal wells, etc, which are equiped with downhole monitoring sensors. These sensors can be (but not limited to) distributed temperature sensors, distributed acoustic sensors, distributed strain sensors, distributed vibration sensors, distributed or single point pressure sensors.

WORKFLOWS

Background

[0001]It can be important to monitor conditions in an oilfield. In subterranean wells, downhole data such as pressure, temperature, flow, and other fluid or reservoir properties can be sensed. For example, the well may include permanent completion deployed sensors or logging tools that transmit data. Real time monitoring tools may allow users to acquire real time raw data, which can be extracted from the location (whether offshore or onshore) then processed and manipulated to generate information that production engineers can use to understand flow and other behavioral characteristics of the well.
