Abstract:
A new methodology for designing the instrumentation of production wells is ;presented. Using a well flow simulator, we can estimate the inflow profile of a ;production well, solving the inverse problem associated with the mathematical ;model for fluid flow in the well and the data. The accuracy in the estimated ;inflow profiles using different design of instrumentation can be computed, and ;an efficient way of searching for good designs of instrumentation is presented.;;;;;;;;;;;;
