Enhance Production—Optimize Operational Efficiencies—Reduce Costs

Avasthi Consulting has extensive experience providing oil & gas production strategies to help clients increase overall asset-wide production. We develop flexible design and production models with look-ahead capability for the entire asset, incorporating the long-term effects of both reservoir decline and investment in new facilities.

Our professional production engineering consultants with extensive experience in production engineering and operations are available for working on our clients' mature oil & gas field revitalization projects around the world, and for conducting the necessary studies for the following (click on each topic below to read more about it):

Field Production Enhancement/ Optimization

Enhanced production can begin at any time during the productive life of an oil reservoir and can be achieved through a variety of methods including fracturing and acidizing, sand control, coiled tubing, hydraulic workover and pipeline and process.

Using state-of-the-art technologies, our experienced consultants design, diagnose and solve production problems to increase oil & gas well performance and maximize the reserves.

Oil & gas field production enhancement/ optimization studies conducted by our professional and experienced production engineering consultants include, but are not limited to:

  • Field, region and pattern level production analysis to identify areas of bypassed oil and infill drilling opportunities
  • Well-by-well production analysis to identify workover opportunities (stimulations, recompletions, sidetracks, revamps, coil tubing jobs, and sand control, etc.)
  • Changes to production systems to improve oil & gas flows
  • Nodal analysis: create IPR and outflow curves and perform sensitivities to predict productivity improvements (using PROSPER, WEM, WellFlo, Perform, PIPESIM and other commonly used software)
  • Well procedures and economic analysis using commonly used economic analysis software

Completion Design & Optimization

Well completion is a critical interface between the productive formation and the wellbore. An effective completion will maintain the mechanical integrity of the borehole without creating any significant restrictions on the flow capacity of the well.

Our consultants design optimal completions—designed for the life of your oil or gas well—that lower production costs, lengthen reservoir life, and optimize hydrocarbon recovery. Completion design and optimization studies conducted by our high-level and seasoned completion engineering consultants include, but are not limited to:

  • Design of sand control completions (frac packs, and gravel packs)
  • Horizontal and intelligent completions
  • Design of production string
  • Artificial lift design and evaluation
  • Deepwater and HP/HT production and completion engineering studies
  • Design of completions, workovers and surveillance programs in extreme deviation and tight tolerance oil & gas wells, onshore or offshore

Facilities Rationalization

Using industry-leading simulation and optimization tools, our consultants provide clients with integrated field development and planning solutions for enterprise-wide asset visibility and control over production systems. From facility engineering and design, to full-scale asset and portfolio management, we provide optimal process designs that drive operational excellence and maximize profitability.

Facilities rationalization studies conducted by our professional and experienced facilities and production engineering consultants include, but are not limited to:

  • Pipeline and flow-line modeling studies (using PIPEPHASE, PIPESIM, HYSIS, PRO II, ASPEN PLUS, COREL DRAW, and CHEMCAD software)
  • Simulation of surface facilities network using PIPESIM or another commonly used software
  • Evaluation and optimization of gas compression and operating strategies for gas fields
  • Recommendation of changes to surface facilities (pipeline sizes, compressor reallocation, pumps and separators)

Well Stimulation

Well stimulation—interventions performed on an oil or gas well to increase production by improving the flow of hydrocarbons from the drainage area into the well bore—can restore or significantly enhance the productivity of a well.

Well stimulation, and related, projects conducted by our professional and experienced well stimulation and geomechanics consultants include, but are not limited to:

  • Fracturing stimulation design
  • Sanding and wellbore stability analysis
  • Subsurface waste disposal analysis, and other rock mechanics applications
  • Matrix acidizing
  • Scale control studies
  • Planning, conducting and supervising laboratory, simulation and field trial projects in fracturing
  • Conducting research in the areas of fracturing and frac-packing
  • Conducting experiments on fracturing fluids and proppants
  • Conducting experiments related to subsurface waste disposal through fracturing
  • Planning and supervising fracturing experiments in client or vendor facilities
  • Evaluating and recommending fracturing simulators
  • Evaluating and recommending new methods and technologies in fracturing
  • Managing fracturing projects
  • Monitoring joint industry and cooperative research projects

Artificial Lift Systems

Artificial lift is increasing in use as mature oilfields decline in productivity, as newer oil fields require the introduction of artificial lift sooner, as improvements in oilfield management practice become more widely deployed and more rapidly adopted, and as oil volumes pumped increase with the application of improved/ enhanced IOR/ EOR technologies.

Our consultants design the right system to ensure better control of lifting costs and oil production. Artificial lift studies conducted by our professional and experienced production engineering consultants include, but are not limited to:

  • Determination of suitability of artificial lift methods
  • Artificial lift design (gas lift, PCP, rod pump, hydraulic pump, ESP)
  • Gas lift allocation/ optimization studies
  • Recommendation of design changes to problematic artificial lift systems

Oilfield Chemistry/ Chemical Engineering

A focused, informed approach to oilfield chemistry will mean fewer false starts, less testing, optimized products, and better performance. Our consultants provide the most advanced chemistry available for oilfields today, specifically tailored to the needs of your operation.

Oilfield chemistry/ chemical engineering studies conducted by our professional and experienced consultants include, but are not limited to:

  • Producing and transporting high pour-point waxy crude oils
  • Selecting optimum elastomers for use in CO2, H2S or any other toxic environment in drilling and production operations
  • Selecting optimum membranes for gas separation in oil & gas production operations
  • Matrix acidizing
  • Applications of polymers, surfactants and detergents in oilfield operations

Corrosion Engineering

Corrosion can have serious consequences including waste of valuable resources, loss or contamination of product, reduction in efficiency, costly maintenance—even plant shutdowns. Corrosion engineering studies conducted by our professional and experienced corrosion and chemical engineering consultants include, but are not limited to:

  • Developing solutions to corrosion problems in oil & gas field operations, and pipelines: designing & implementing corrosion control/ management systems, developing and applying inspection methodology as it relates to corrosion
