Smart field technology is an emerging development in the oil and gas
production industry (see Figure 19).
It involves the application of measurement and
control concepts to optimize the production of hydrocarbons over the
lifecycle of a reservoir, and includes aspects such as measurement,
data transmission, data handling and data interpretation, system
modeling, uncertainty quantification, decision-making under
uncertainty, optimization and control (cf. Figure
Smart fields technology may
allow us to go from passive/reactive production scenarios to
active/proactive production control.
This project concerns the development of control and optimization
techniques for the optimal operation of reservoirs on the basis of
dynamic models containing quantified uncertainty.
A smart field in which oil is produced through waterflooding.
