Abstract

Secure monitoring of well site operations via Internet has made a significant impact on how oil and gas companies plan and execute their operations. InterACT is web-based application used to witness and deliver well site data in real time using a reliable Internet hub.

InterACT in Testing Services is enjoying a number of advantages which can be summarized as below:

  • Allow immediate and better decision making with rapid data interpretation and remote expert support.

  • At any time during or after the test, data can be downloaded and imported into E&P software tools for further analysis, and their results and reports can be posted back unto the InterACT hub.

  • Reduce costs through optimized cleanups and shorter well tests.

  • Reduce travel and logistical costs, as well as HSE exposure.

  • Enable remote operations with limited local support

  • Provide data confidentiality with secured login and continuous encrypted transmission.

Data from DART, Vx Multiphase flow meter, events, real time plots and any other data useful for operations can be monitored at bases and offices of E & P companies especially for exploration and remote location wells for expert’s opinion and making timely decisions.

Theme of this paper is to demonstrate different steps to design and plan InterACT job on an exploratory well of OMV Pakistan. It also describes successful implementation of InterACT technology which was introduced first time in Pakistan and its advantages for Exploration and Production (E & P) companies.
