Topical issues related to efficient operation of oil production facilities

UDK: 622.276.5.05
DOI: 10.24887/0028-2448-2020-7-46-49
Key words: efficient operation, reliability, quality, safety, energy efficiency

The paper considers important issues associated with efficient operation of oilfield equipment and thus, cost-effective operation of production wells. Cost-effectiveness is best described in terms of equipment life cycle and cost estimates over the useful life period with account of durability and non-failure operation time. The major challenge associated with further advancements in oil production equipment has become the “human factor” which may interfere with efficient utilization of available facilities. It should be noted that to-be specialists with comprehensive expertise and in-depth knowledge in “pure’ and “applied” mathematics and IT should have the similar wealth of knowledge in science (physics, mechanics, chemistry, biology etc.) and humanities (discussing dialectical relationships between object properties and tangible world events). Otherwise, operation of production facilities results in generation of cross-functional barriers reducing the deliverability of the system and increasing maintenance costs. As far as oil production progresses, efficiency of the production processes decreases and gradually approaches to performance limits. Eventually any new generation of the main facilities and any future process model provide less performance improvement, while implementation costs remain at the same level. That is, each brand-new or even breakthrough technology has its operational limit and cannot yield more than it has been intended for. At the end stage of operation, improvement of individual engineering solutions may become uneconomic or unfeasible. This indicates reaching the limit of productivity growth for production systems relying on particular operation principle. This creates objective necessity in development of production systems based on new operating principles. Thus, each contemporary oil production enterprise that operates various oil production tools should be considered as an emergent system, which has a multilevel structure with complex interactions between energy, technology, information and geo-information. The present paper resulted from analytical studies based on general patterns of technological development. However, the most important conclusion is that the results of this analytical study are fully confirmed by production process monitoring data obtained by Tatneft Company. References 1.
