Effectively distributing steam or other injection fluids over long horizontal lengths in thermal wells is not always easy. Nor is managing the inflow of production fluids over these same lengths while maximizing recovery. Noetic’s Flow Optimization group uses unique analysis tools calibrated with physical testing to deliver our clients with new well completion designs, or evaluations of existing designs. This provides operators with greater control of fluid flow in their thermal wells, while maintaining a safe operating environment.
Noetic’s coupled thermo-hydraulic wellbore/reservoir model is a flexible analysis tool that contains multi-phase flow and heat transfer capabilities to allow for a wide variety of applications to be evaluated and optimized. Examples of work conducted by the Flow Optimization group include:
