Technology in monitoring of reservoirs

The oil and gas extraction is extremely complex and depends on large investments in technology and machinery to avoid waste of time and resources. In order to reduce uncertainties in the process, especially at the beginning of the operation of the wells, oil exploration companies come from increasingly invested in monitoring and in the characterization of reservoirs.

In the last 30 years, the Brazilians got big drilling monitoring technological advances, ranging from previous tests, mathematical analysis, to the use of State-of-the-art software, for there to be success in the operation. And for better monitoring of fields implemented the steps of modeling and simulation in the exploration of new wells.

In order to get a prediction of the behavior of the reservoirs of oil and gas exploration companies have used the simulation tool for mathematical modeling. The company Queiroz Galvão-exploration and production, is one of the major investors in cutting-edge technology and uses the 3D simulation technology to study and evaluate the performance of a reservoir over time under the most varied scenarios and situations.

Through the 3D simulation it is possible to obtain data of geology, geophysics, rock and fluid properties, location of wells, lifting methods and conditions of operation of the production facilities. With more detailed information, there may be a better production monitored. With everything the Queiroz Galvão stays updated on new technologies for exploration and search news how seismic use (4 d) to show better the way and holding of the so-called black gold.
