Effective management of field development is based on daily routine engineering calculations and monitoring key performance indicators of production. At the same time it is recognized through the industry that there exists a gap between reservoir engineering and decision making process for real time reservoir management.

Whatever software one uses it will not be very useful if an engineer cannot get right input data in the proper format in time and manager is constrained in getting information for quick decision making.

Reservoir Engineering Production Optimization System is engineering information portal, which provides wide web based environment for production engineers and management of oil companies.

The system gives field data access such as well logs, core data, logs interpretation and perforation data, interactive cross sections, geological maps, PVT fluids properties, daily and monthly production, well stock information and well events.

Revolution approach is that portal provides an ability to perform standard engineering calculation from any place in corporate network. PVT correlation, well bottom-hole pressure and productivity calculations are few of them. It allows using only web browser to build log curves and well's IPR curves, to estimate artificial lift efficiency. It gives the opportunity to download data in standard software format and reduce data gathering time.

Portal presents basic collaboration environment features. News, forums, links, documents storage and engineering utilities build distributed collaborative environment and provide effective tools for knowledge management and dissemination company wide.

We believe that portal can add more value to the assets being properly tailored to specific needs of organization. This system is developed to enable robust and timely decision making for oil companies and is successfully implemented in one of them in Russia.
