Intelligent Completions

As the oil industry matures, it must seek better and more efficient ways to exploit diminishing resources. To maximize production and improve the economics of reservoirs, oil companies must resort to a wide range of sophisticated completion strategies. By real-time data monitoring with remote-controlled sliding sleeves or variable chokes, intelligent completions help operators to better manage production, eliminate or reduce interventions and associated production downtime, well costs and risks.

This new IPIMS topic discusses the overall evolution of intelligent well completions, and describes a variety of intelligent well technologies that focus on measurement and control techniques to optimize oil and gas production.
