Overview

Production Engineering and Technology embraces the modelling and analysis of traditional production subjects, such as artificial lift, sand control, etc. However, starting fifteen years ago, it has concentrated on combining Production and Reservoir Simulation and Modelling skills to design, monitor and optimise production from advanced and/or intelligent or smart wells. The continuous, underlying theme of this multi-year, multi-disciplinary research theme being to quantify the "Added Value" from these more expensively completed wells.
