Abstract

Intelligent well technology is an emerging technology for the oil and gas industry. It provides a broad spectrum of value generating functionality for oil and gas field operations; all derived from the ability to collect, transmit, and analyze completion. production and reservoir data. The potential benefits of a smart well result from its flexibility to adapt to unexpected geological features or production conditions. It also allows the operator to produce, monitor and control the production hydrocarbons through remotely operated completion system. This has lead to installation of the first intelligent completion system in Gulf of Mexico1 • The objectives of this study are to evaluate the effectiveness of "Proactive Control" in some generic reservoir types which are more suitable for this type reservoir control; this will also help to explore and rank parameters affecting fluid-front on the basis of their degree of contribution to fluid-front. To meet these objectives, ECLIPSE software packages were used. The study was divided two; optimisation on the model and extra sensitivities to study reservoir performance and versatility of !WsT in vmious reservoir conditions. IWsT installation in this model has managed to delay early water breakthrough and increase the well's producing lifetime. Furthermore, water production has been reduced while there is an increment in total oil recovery, as high as 6%, when applying optimum choking policy. Further sensitivities are discussed in detail in chapter 3 and 4.
