Needed options for replacing aging vertical wells with horizontals

Several gas storage pools studied

Detailed static and dynamic models constructed

Maximize gas storage cycle at minimum well replacement cost

Challenge

  • A midstream company needed to evaluate options for replacing aging vertical wells with horizontals in several gas storage pools

Solution

  • The integrated models of the gas storage pools incorporate 3D seismic and petrophysical analysis and performance data
  • 3D geological models were constructed, followed by the preparation and calibration of dynamic reservoir simulation models
  • As part of the current well replacement study, some of the models were updated and calibrated to match recent performance data from the field
  • Forecast scenarios are being investigated to determine the optimal well replacement strategy for select gas storage pools

Value

  • Through gas storage modelling, Sproule can help organizations ensure that gas storage assets are optimized
