Permanent Well Monitoring
Definition - What does Permanent Well Monitoring mean?
Permanent Well Monitoring is a situation whereby oil or gas wells and hydrocarbon reservoirs are monitored continuously with the help of permanent monitoring gauges. These monitoring instruments have sensors installed at various locations which provide real-time information to the engineer who is performing the task. This real-time data can be used to assess the downhole conditions of the well and help in making well and reservoir management decisions.
Petropedia explains Permanent Well Monitoring
The following are some of the benefits of Permanent Well Monitoring:
|Productivity of well||Well Productivity maximization & minimizing formation damage.|
|Reservoir Optimization||The purpose of this function of Permanent Well Monitoring is to maximize hydrocarbon recovery, reserves and development of future fields.|
|Appraisal of a well||This function helps in real-time downhole analysis of well conditions.|
