Well test planning, monitoring and analysis

Norwegian North Sea

Project Completed

Well test planning, modelling, monitoring and analysis

OPC provided well test planning, modelling, monitoring and analysis services to an independent oil and gas exploration company drilling an appraisal well in the Norwegian North Sea. 

Bill Roberts, President of OPC USA,  acted as the technical well test expert for the duration of the project. Bill undertook pre-test modeling and then provided a remote real-time monitoring service for the duration of the test.  He then undertook an initial ‘quicklook’ analysis and then a more detailed post-test analysis utilising PTA.

Bill’s involvement in the project helped the operator to optimize the flow rates / flow periods during the test, which was a success and enabled the operator to better define the productivity of the reservoir.
