structural features are likely to be major influences on the hydraulic
flow paths in the reservoir and therefore their identification is of
substantial advantage to efficiency in reservoir management. Recent
research, in partnership with The University of Edinburgh, has developed
a methodology for extracting inter-well communications from the
correlations in rate between wells.
The technique requires no expensive data acquisition: all we need are the usual monthly oil, gas, water production (and injection if in operation) volumes per well from field start-up.
