QFinder aims to help operators to extract additional valuable conclusions from information already available and reduce the need for additional wire line logs. QFinder was developed under the MapDano FINEP Grant. QFinder produces a tool less production log.
Mature wells with low productivity are revitalized through an acid treatment. The correct mapping of any localized production impairment allows for an optimized intervention (shifting valves or sleeves, cleaning scales, etc) or acid treatment at a lower cost.
The service model contemplates using QFinder as the base for future asset developments in a tailor made, fit for purpose, application.
Simworx is now closing the second year of development with a mature version addressing different scenarios, numerical models and the need for specific client-requested features. Currently, the software is able to:
• Based on reservoir information and the temperature profile.
• Predicts flow and pressure profiles and pinpoint problem spots,
• Quantify reductions in deliverability, which can be done automatically or iteratively.
• Identify gas or water production early on.
QFinder can be used in the periodical tracking and evaluation of a single well or field production history and provide valuable information for the operator all run from a convenient central location.
QFinder engine is a Finite Element based CFD solver coupling porous media flow and energy balances. That engine has been in use for over a decade with proven results and has received constant updates and feature additions according to each user needs.
