Schlumberger has introduced a new connected approach to well testing by launching the Concert well testing live performance at ADIPEC. What does this commercialisation bring to operations?
Concert well testing live performance technology brings real-time transparency, collaboration, and accessibility to well testing, cleanup, and production testing operations. This information-centric ecosystem digitally integrates all well tests and process information via ruggedised tablets, wearable technology, wireless sensors, and video cameras. Robust software drives web dashboards and video displays across the tablets and wherever customers specify, with everyone viewing the same data, diagnostics, and analysis. Acumen is accelerated across the wellsite team, remote operations centre (ROC), and customers in conjunction with real-time communication for timely decision making to achieve successful test completion. Data quality and usability are increased while, in turn, personnel exposure and manual measurements are significantly reduced. The Concert technology transforms well testing into a connected live collaboration to more accurately prove reservoir potential, record reserve bookings with greater precision and, ultimately, maximise hydrocarbon recovery.
What are the new technology’s applications?
The application spectrum is multifaceted, spanning land and offshore testing of exploration and appraisal wells, cleanup and flowback tests, and production testing. All applications benefit from real-time, continuous well testing and process monitoring via wireless sensors and HD video cameras. Concert performance’s inline monitoring, data collection and analysis, QC, customisable reporting, and global communications capabilities have been extensively field tested in Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia and Australia.
