Distinguished Lecturer: Well Dynamic Simulation – Challenging the “Just Do This” Approach

June 5 @ 11:45 am - 2:30 pm

$40.00 – $70.00

Society of Petroleum Engineers Western Australia is proud to present the details of our June 2024 SPE WA Lunch Time Technical Meeting.

About the Presentation

Over the last decade, dynamic simulation has increasingly been integrated into day-to-day well and production operations, and decision-making processes. This presentation will showcase well dynamic simulations supporting the full life cycle of well operations, including well clean-up, field start-up, production operations, well intervention and field abandonment. These case studies highlight the importance of a cross-disciplinary approach to foster strong collaborations between the field-based supervisor and the office-based engineer carrying out the simulations. When operational parameters are properly incorporated into simulations, the results can provide great insights, enabling field supervisors to carry out operations in a safe and efficient manner. Field supervision becomes more relaxed and assured as emergent situations have already been anticipated through simulations that include multiple what-if scenarios. A successful application of well dynamic simulation provides an informed challenge to experience-based bias that is common in operations organizations, which often results in a “just do this, because it worked well in the past” approach. So, let’s simulate operations to anticipate the expected and unexpected before going out to the field. Your operations will be safer, more predictable, and more enjoyable!


About the Distinguished Lecturer:

Ryosuke YOKOTE (Rio) is a Senior Petroleum Engineer with Eni Australia. He has over 29 years of industry experience in Australia, Timor-Leste, Indonesia, and Japan. His experiences include operations engineering support, planning and supervising various well operations, flow assurance engineering as well as hands-on drilling crew during the early days of his career. He has authored and co-authored multiple technical papers on intelligent completions, advanced perforation technique and application of well dynamic simulation to support operations. Rio graduated from Tohoku University in 1993 with a BSc and in 1995 with an MSc, both in Resource Engineering.
