The customer, Chevron, wanted to:
- Reduce planning time by 90% by automating well design calculations
- Iterate through hundreds of scenarios to optimise its well design
Chevron used internal resources to integrate Oliasoft calculation engines directly into an internal custom application. Chevron’s application retrieves required parameters from a reservoir model and feeds Oliasoft WellDesign’s engines with a set of input parameters.
The results are instant and streamed back to Chevron’s internal application for evaluation. If the well design does not have satisfactory safety factors the software will iterate through multiple variations of casing string types to a achieve a quality result.
Chevron’s internal team used Oliasoft’s documented API to integrate calculations into a native application.
Oliasoft’s technical documentation, together with extensive testing and validation was used to qualify the solution for use.
