Bivrost Development Operations Smart Identification

04/06/2018 - 04/02/2019

João works on an AI component used for identification of field operations. By using machine learning models, this automatically finds and classifies common operations during the drilling process. The result is an intelligent analysis of data available in Bivrost and enhanced operation reports.

 

It implies the extraction of data from several Mongo and Influx databases, the creation of data-driven models using Weka and Python, and the deployment of those models in a React-based project (Javascript).

Bivrost Cloud Portal Development

04/06/2018 - 30/11/2018

Louis works on the development of the Bivrost, the Kelda’s web platform used to plot and manage operational data. Louis contributes at each part of the development process according to the goals of the team.

 

This involves the development of Meteor/React and Flask applications, linked to MongoDB and Influx databases, with the use of Docker to set up isolated environments.

Thomas Quandalle

Bivrost Cloud Portal Development

04/06/2018 - 30/11/2018

Thomas works on the development of the Bivrost. This tool allows all its users to upload, plot and download operational data through a simple internet access. Thomas mainly focuses on the front-end and the user experience of the Bivrost.


It implies the development and the deployment of a client/server architecture in Javascript, the use of React and Redux with multiple Mongo and Influx databases.

Bivrost Development Real-Time Data Uploads

04/06/2018 - 28/09/2018

Jean-Baptiste works on the development of the Bivrost, the web platform used to plot and manage operational data. He mainly focuses on real-time data uploads, by setting up a new software architecture aimed at improving their performance,  reliability and scalability.

 

For that, Jean Baptiste works with Celery tasks queues, Docker, Python, as well as Mongo and Influx databases.

Extension of the Leidar® MPD Design Model

04/04/2018 - 28/09/2018

Louis is 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.

Guillaume Pugliese

Guillaume Pugliese

First Design of Influx Management Enveloppe (IME)

01/02/2018 - 31/07/2018

Guillaume is developing the first version of Influx Management Enveloppe, 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, and now on Python connected with another HMI on the web.

Bivrost Cloud Portal Development

29/01/2018 - 27/07/2018

 

Pierre-Nicolas works on the development of the Kelda online data analysis tool, the Bivrost. This tool allows 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.

Alexandre Himmelein

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.

Antoine Marchal

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 was 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.

Adrien Tardieu

Bivrost Cloud Portal Development

03/01/2017 - 15/06/2017

Adrien worked on the development of the online analysis tool called Kelda Cloud Portal at the time, now Bivrost. He focused on bringing the product from an experimental tool to a more robust and market-ready one. Among others, he developed a first version of the REST API to transfer well data, optimized data storage and set up security on the web application.

 

It implied being familiar with Javascript, being ready to discover the React framework, doing some Python for data processing and having some knowledge in relational and non-relational databases.

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.
