An innovative process developed by energy services company LR Senergy, which can be used to model an entire well and subsequently identify production optimisation options, has been awarded US and UK patents.
The global firm secured the two patents six years after making the initial applications, due to a number of legal challenges around protecting a process rather than a product.
The patents protect the process LR Senergy offers under the product name, Wellscope™, which uses state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to model pore spaces in the ‘skin’ zone of a well or a full well. Various completion scenarios can then be produced identifying the best options for significantly optimising wellbore designs and in turn, production. Read more…
