Annular Fluid Expansion

Secure well integrity with Oliasoft WellDesign's Annular Fluid Expansion module

Oliasoft WellDesign's Annular Fluid Expansion (AFE) module is engineered to address the challenges posed by fluctuating fluid temperatures during well operations. By accurately predicting fluid expansion and contraction, the AFE module mitigates the risk of well integrity incidents.

Unique advantages when using the AFE module

Comprehensive Results 

Unlike competing software, Oliasoft WellDesign provides detailed results, offering engineers a comprehensive understanding of their designs. From volumetric change of the annulus geometry to initial and final condition fluid volumes, users gain invaluable insights to inform their decision-making process.

Flexible Simulation Options

Our AFE module offers a range of advanced simulation capabilities, including the ability to chain multiple AFE simulations or set initial temperature conditions per section. Engineers can also bleed off or top up fluid to relevant annuli by using the add/remove volume feature. The AFE module offers the option to set a "Top of barite" and simulation settings such as including or excluding formation ballooning effects in your simulations.

Enhanced Workflow 

With Oliasoft WellDesign, engineers experience an optimized workflow and enhanced user experience. Our platform features an intuitive interface that streamlines the design process, enabling faster iterations and more informed design choices. Integrated trajectory and well schematic functionalities minimize manual data entry, saving valuable time and reducing errors, ultimately allowing engineers to work efficiently and effectively.

Transparent Methodology

We pride ourselves on transparency, openly sharing our calculation methodologies and key assumptions with our users. This transparency fosters trust and confidence in our software, empowering engineers to make informed decisions with complete clarity.
