Schlumberger releases Avocet 2012 production operations platform

Thursday, November 3, 2011

Schlumberger has released a new version of its Avocet production operations software platform, called Avocet 2012.


The software can be used to get an up to date picture of production operations, and provides engineering analysis tools which can be used to try to work out the reasons for any production shortfalls.

The software can capture and validate field data, and track specialized oilfield operations.

It can determine artificial lift efficiency, and track authorizations for expenditure (AFE) and performance of workovers.

It can connect with petroleum engineering simulation software such as the 'PIPESIM' production analysis models and 'OFM' well and reservoir analysis, to help try to understand production shortfalls, for example due to flow assurance problems.

'Today, production engineers manage seven times more wells than they did in the mid-1990s,' says Meyer Bengio, vice president, petroleum engineering, Schlumberger Information Solutions.

'The large number of wells combined with the significant increase in real-time data generated from permanent sensors has created a situation in which engineers only have time to react to well problems, rather than preventing them.

'With Avocet, engineers can be proactive with all of their wells and act with confidence to close the gap between actual and potential production.'

It is built on a Microsoft foundation and the platform is 'open and extensible', Schlumberger says.
