Reservoir and Flow Simulations

Optimizing production through analysis and modelling

Get in touch

Enhance flow rates

Meet production targets with less investment

Optimize field development planning

Obtain accurate short and long term production forecasts

Our experts model flow in reservoirs, wells, subsea architecture and surface facilities to provide production forecasts, solutions for enhanced flow and requirements for field development

Static and Dynamic Reservoir Modelling

We use MBAL™, ECLIPSE™ and Petrel™ or equivalent software to model and predict reservoir behavior for field development planning, specialized studies, production forecasting and reserves estimates.

Well Performance Modelling

We use PROSPER™ and OLGA™ for modelling inflow and vertical lift performance in horizontal and big bore wells, and artificial lift simulations for platform and subsea architecture.

Production Chemistry and Fluid Characterization

We use PVTsim NOVA and PVTP™ for fluid characterization and for validation of fluid samples and laboratory results.

Production Optimization – Flow Assurance

We provide state of the art multiphase flow and PVT technologies to establish design solutions and operational procedures to monitor, model and optimize production. We help clients increase lifecycle asset value through opportunity framing, reviews of producing assets and provision of independent technical advice. Our toolkit consists of OLGA™, GAP™, RESOLVE™ and IFM™.

Production Technology

We provide well design support, production start-up monitoring and optimization, metering philosophies and stimulation design at any stage of the well lifecycle.

“Add Energy’s independent technical analysis and advice enabled us to understand the behavior of the reservoir to maximize flow rates and meet our production targets.”

Project Showcase: Integrated Production Modelling for Optimized Field Development Planning and Management

What We Did

Add Energy built an integrated production model designed to increase the economics of a gas condensate project by managing pressure losses and flow assurance throughout the production system.

The Result

  • Production forecasting and modelling of field performance
  • Field Development Planning was optimized by bottleneck analysis
  • Add Energy’s workflow and approach was adapted to all mega projects for this Australian Operator

New perspectives, the right mindset and a shared vision to succeed

It cannot be denied that 2020 has been a year like no other. Based in the Australian office, Eduardo Robaina, Add Energy’s Executive Vice President of Drilling and Well Engineering, guided his team through a year of highs and lows. From bushfires to Covid-19 and regionalized lockdowns, the challenges have been constant.

With a focus on strengthening relationships, entering new markets, and improving capabilities, Eduardo is eager to explore the opportunities that await Add Energy in 2021.

In this interview, which forms part of our ‘The Big Picture: leading our team into the future’ series, Eduardo takes some time to explore lessons learned during 2020 and how his team grew during a period of economic decline.

Pause, assess, collaborate: a recipe for success during a crisis

Based in Oslo, Norway, EVP Morten Haug Emilsen leads Add Energy’s global Well Control team - a group of highly experienced individuals dedicated to preventing and killing blowouts and optimizing production.

Having responded to more than 70 blowouts worldwide the last three decades, Morten and his team are used to working in uncertain, high pressure environments - and this invaluable experience helped them to survive and thrive during the global Covid-19 pandemic.

In this blog post, which forms part of our leadership interview series, Morten explores his key takeaways from the past year in business, how his team has pulled together to deliver great results for clients, and how he plans to lead his team into the new year ahead...

How to reduce response time when the unthinkable happens

An uncontrolled hydrocarbon release is one of the worst possible scenarios that an operating facility can experience. Not only are the safety barriers compromised, exposing the asset and people to significantly more risk, but the economic, business and environmental consequences can be detrimental.
