Digital twins to step up oil and gas production

24 Nov '22
Russian scientists at Perm Polytechnic University (PPU) in the West Urals have developed new software that would enable improved resource management in oil and gas production.

At the heart of the project are digital twins for waterfloods at an oil field, a measure that would help use water resources more wisely and minimize or fully prevent the pollution of a local geological environment. By smartening up water consumption an oil producer could cut electricity consumption substantially while keeping production at levels required.

The software system would facilitate control of artificial waterfloods, a process used to boost production rates from crude oil reservoirs. With the software early-stage corrosion in pipes could be identified way in advance.
