Session 2: Advanced Technologies and Interpretation in Production Monitoring

The industry strives for continual improvement of monitoring technologies to provide a better understanding of well and reservoir performance. A key component of improved monitoring technology, however, is the ability to match real data with numerical models, predict future performance based on the higher quality data, and then optimize well performance. Thus, realizing the value of information. This session will focus on not only new monitoring technologies, but the modeling work, and case histories demonstrating improved value from better and more accurate monitoring.
