LINK-WellOpt quickly optimizes well placement and assess the uncertainty of multiple models. It is applicable for both green and brown fields for fine or coarse scale models. The program handles complex faulted and heterogeneous model with general well architecture and completion schedule. LINK-WellOpt also provides the visualization and quantitative information of drainage volume.
Case ranking comparison with conventional simulator
The correlation of case ranking between LINK-WellOpt and the conventional simulator is quite good. This is achieved at a reduced computational cost.
Optimize number of wells
In the application type, the user can select the optimum number of wells in a given reservoir. The plot shows that as the number of wells are increased the recovery flattens out after certain number of wells are drilled and thereby helping user to identify optimum number of wells.
In this application type, the user can select P10, P50, P90 realizations based on the actual recovery. This is in contract to the traditional P10, P50, P90 picking based on STOIIP.
This plug-in calculates 3d properties such as front propagation, grid cell contribution, drainage volume. And the front propagtion can be animated using the Play button feature.
Multi-well and realization analysis
The plug-in calculates the hydrocarbon recovery for all the well combination, across all the possibile realizations and outputs a box and whisker plot. The user can choose the well combination that has minimum variance for the recovery.

LINK-WellOpt utilizes a novel approach to compute and visualize pressure wave propagation and well drainage volumes. The technology is based on the Fast Marching Method and semi-analytic approximation of pressure and rate transients in structurally complex and heterogeneous media with general well architecture. The speed of computation makes it ideally suited to rank multi-wells and realizations.
Selecting optimum number of wells in a given reservoir.
Selecting a well combination that has minimum variance of hydrocarbon recovery across all realizations.
Selecting P10, P50, P90 realizations based on recovery rather than on STOIIP.
Scatter and box-whisker plots that show the ranking parameter for different well combinations and realizations.
Ability to copy the plots' data into a clipboard and paste it in a notepad.
Calculation and 3D visualization of front propagation, grid cell contribution, drainage volume.
Taking into account the well scheduling in the recovery calculations.
Ability to export Rate/Drawdown profile for each well in a given well combination.
The LINK-WellOpt features includes:
Multi-well and realization analysis.
3D visualization of front propagation and drainage volume.
Export of Rate/Drawdown profile for each well.
**LINK-WellOpt is capable to perform the feature of CONNECT-DynaRank but with more added features to it. Kelkar offers deal for existing CONNECT-DynaRank customer who intends to upgrade to LINK-WellOpt plug-in.
