Auto calculate bottomhole pressues with whitson⁺ and Peleton’s WellView

Accurate and reliable flowing bottomhole pressure (BHP) data is crucial for various engineering applications, such as reservoir simulation, production diagnostics, nodal analysis, RTA/PTA, and material balance. It allows engineers to make informed decisions about well production, reservoir management, and optimization strategies. However, manually gathering and calculating BHP data can be a time-consuming and error-prone process.

To address this issue, the whitson+ software platform support integrations that allows users to automatically calculate BHP e.g. using data from Peleton’s WellView software. This functionality has already been successfully set up for most of the 40+ companies that subscribe to the whitson platform.

The process of automatically calculating BHPs involves integrating i) internal production data, ii) wellbore configuration and artificial lift data stored in Peleton’s WellView, iii) an integration solution such as the whitson+ API or Snowflake, and the whitson+ software platform. This allows users to quickly and accurately calculate BHP for multiple wells at once, saving time and reducing the risk of human error.

whitson+ uses published, physics based models to accurately calculate BHP, taking into account various factors such as wellbore geometry, fluid properties, and wellbore pressure and temperature. The integration of whitson+ and Peleton’s WellView allows users to easily access and analyze their BHP data, which is useful for monitoring well performance and identifying any potential for well improvement.

Overall, the integration of Peleton’s WellView with the whitson+ platform provides a convenient and reliable solution for automating the calculation of flowing BHP data. It helps engineers save time, reduce errors, and make more informed decisions about their operations. By using this functionality, engineers can focus on more important tasks and make better use of their time, ultimately leading to more efficient and effective operations.
