Title: SYSTEMS AND METHODS FOR AUTOMATED–INFLOW CONTROL DEVICE DESIGN
Abstract:
Embodiments provide a system and method for designing automated inflow control devices to be used in the extraction of hydrocarbons from subterranean formations. According to an embodiment, the system includes a real-time data processing module configured to gather and process well data, the well data including logging while drilling data and user inputted data, and an intelligent field restriction module configured to generate one or more optimized inflow control device designs based on the well data gathered and processed by the real-time data processing module. The system further includes an inflow control design module configured to couple one or more optimized inflow control device designs from the intelligent field restriction module with one or more scenarios to create a set of ranked optimized inflow control device designs, from which a user selects a preferred optimized inflow control device design based on well optimization goals defined in the user inputted data.
