Extension of the Leidar® MPD Design Model

04/04/2018 - 28/09/2018

Louis started working on an extension of the hydraulics model used by Kelda for the Leidar® Control System. This extension is based on a more accurate description of the choke, at the output of the well.

 

The first step was to design this extension, then design new observers based on it. Finally, alternative controllers can be tested using these new models. All of this is designed using Matlab/Simulink.

First Design of Influx Management Enveloppe (IME)

01/02/2018 - 31/07/2018

Guillaume started developing the first version of Influx Management Envelope, a decision-making tool when a kick occurs. This tool helps its users to choose between well or pressure controls.

 

It was first developed on Matlab with an HMI, then on Python connected with another HMI on the web.

Bivrost Cloud Portal Development

29/01/18 - 27/07/18

 

Pierre-Nicolas worked on the development of the Kelda online data analysis tool, the Bivrost. This tool allow all its users to upload, plot and download operational data through a simple internet access.

 

It implies the development and the deployment of a client/server architecture in Javascript, working with a Python rest API to process data and the management of multiple Mongo and Influx databases for data storage.

First Design of PVT Module

15/01/2018 - 13/07/2018

Alexandre started to work on the first version of the PVT Model developed by Kelda and that will later on be integrated inside Straume® and the Influx Management Envelop (IME). 

 

The initial idea was to develop a tool that could predict accurate density within the well for a given pressure and temperature. Second phase was then to compute phase equilibrium calculation to get bubble points location all over the well.

 

It required to create a Matlab thermochemical model coupled with an HMI. Alexandre also worked on C++ translation as shareability and speed were two main KPIs of the project.

First Design of Well Temperature Dynamics Module

02/01/2018 - 30/06/2018

Antoine started developing the dynamic temperature model inside the wellbore. The aim of this project is to be able to calculate the temperature all across a user-defined well and give the steady-state result of this evolution. These features are to be integrated inside the Straume® and the Influx Management Envelop (IME).

 

It implied developing Matlab functions and plots for the calculation and time evolution of the model, and an HMI to set the well characteristics up.

First Design of Straume® Topside Network

04/01/2016 - 23/09/2016

Louis started modeling the first version of what will later be the Topside Network of Straume®, i.e the possibility to add components (such as pipes, pumps, valves and chokes) upstream or downstream of the well.

 

It implies creation of specific classes with object-oriented programming language (C++) and the time evolution of flows, pressures and densities. First through a series of steady states, then through dynamic evolution.
