Well Modeling

ReO® software is seamlessly integrated with Field Office suite’s well modeling application, WellFlo® software. This provides detailed well performance data which plays a pivotal role in optimization calculations. This functionality is available for both production as well as injection wells.

ReO Software - Well modeling example.
Well modeling example.

For naturally flowing wells ReO software uses the performance curve at wellhead based on wellhead pressure, temperature and gas, oil and water rates. For gas-lifted wells a two dimensional tabulation is generated using gas-lift injection rate and tubing head pressure against well head temperature, fluids produced and casing head pressure. WellFlo advanced gas valve modeling (AGVM) functionality is used to compute the correct casing head pressure for the specified injection rate.

For ESP wells, the power data corresponding to the given production rate is also used during the calculations. During optimization, ReO software honors the manufacturer’s recommended flow-rate range for the selected frequency.

The application allows users to import well performance data from Prosper™ software using its OpenServer™ feature or copy and paste well performance data generated by any other well modeling program. For gas-lifted wells, the user could use the externally generated PCD file for importing data into the ReO application.
