Description

Advanced well concepts including horizontal and multilateral wells have become a dominant feature of new field development and redevelopment opportunities. They can, when used appropriately, dramatically improve the economic profitability of field development operations. However, the success of deployment largely depends on the effectiveness of assessment of the longer term production dynamics essential to ensuring “life of well” design criteria and effective reservoir management.

The course will discuss the subjects of multilateral well applications, pros and cons, the classification of junction and completion, well performance, and problem diagnosis. The application and benefits of horizontal and multilateral wells are analyzed. Methods to predict well performance and recovery from horizontal and multilateral wells are presented. The integration of inflow and wellbore flow performance for individual horizontal and multilateral wells is discussed. Well completion options for horizontal and multilateral wells are summarized. The objective is to be able to identify the candidates for the technology, and to be able to design a well that will optimize production.

Dr. Ding Zhu is an Assistant Professor at Petroleum Engineering Department at Texas A&M University. Before joining Texas A&M, she was a Research Scientist at The University of Texas at Austin. Since 1992, Dr. Ding Zhu has conducted and supervised research projects in production engineering, well stimulation, and complex well-performance. Dr. Zhu is a member of Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), and author of more than sixty technical papers. She has been a committee member for many SPE conferences and events, and a technical editor for SPE Production and Facilities Journal.

 Dr. Zhu has developed several comprehensive computer software applications for production engineering, many of which have been adopted by industry sponsors. She developed the production engineering software package, PPS, which has been widely used in teaching and in the field worldwide. She has also taught numerous industry short courses on well stimulation, well performance improvement, and horizontal/multilateral wells.
