Abstract

Gas lift optimization and design has traditionally used single-string analysis to perform optimization. This required time consuming exercises and lengthy processes that never achieved the global reach of field constraints management. In a dynamic brown field where field interruptions and process upsets are common, response time is a key performance indicator. These challenges were effectively overcame by introducing a Real Time Production Surveillance and Optimization system capable to perform dual string gas lift optimization field-wide and in real-time.

The implementation was the first Real Time Production Surveillance and Optimization system in the country. The system links up real-time operational data historian system and corporate production information management system (PIMS) and is coupled with the Well-Network suite of simulation tools to provide an integrated suite of production surveillance, diagnostic and optimization application modules that increase the efficiency of daily oil and gas operations activities.

The goal of this paper is to underscore the advantages and benefits that can be drawn from the utilization of Real Time Production Surveillance and Optimization System during the operational phase of production optimization process.
