Oil and gas extraction is an extremely complex activity that relies on large technological and machinery investments to avoid waste of time and resources. In order to reduce uncertainties in the process, especially at the beginning of the wells operation, oil exploration companies are increasingly invested in the monitoring and characterization of reservoirs.
In the last 30 years, the Brazilian drilling fields have received great technological advances in monitoring, ranging from previous tests, mathematical analyses, to the use of next-generation software, so that there is success in the operation. And for better monitoring of the fields was implemented the steps of modeling and simulation in the exploration of new wells.
In order to seek a prediction of the behaviour of oil and gas reservoirs, exploration companies have used the simulation tool for mathematical modelling. The company Queiroz Galvão – Exploration and production, is one of the major investors in cutting-edge technology and uses 3d simulation technology to study and evaluate the performance of a reservoir over time under the most varied scenarios and situations.
Through 3d simulation It is possible to obtain data from geology, geophysics, rock and fluid properties, location of wells, elevation methods and operating conditions of production facilities. With more detailed information, it is possible that there is a better monitored production. With everything, Queiroz Galvão keeps up to date on the new technologies of exploration and search news as use of seismic (4d) to better show the path and exploitation of the so-called black gold.
