Featured Technologies: METTE
Successful production management involves evaluating the flow of hydrocarbons in the reservoir, through the production network terminating at a processing facility. Through coupled reservoir and production network simulations, METTE provides predicted variations of mass and energy balances for the total production system, throughout the life of a field. The results allow identification of system bottlenecks, the effect of artificial lift and/or pressure boosting, and the evaluation of that effect for different production strategies. Integrated field modeling is one of the main modules in METTE, which also includes virtual metering, transient simulations and lookup/performance calculations.
This presentation will introduce the different modules as a tool for production technologists in supporting field development work and evaluations for fields in production.
