Project phasesTISA 3D is a state-of–the-art, patented and revolutionary technology which needs to be brought to deep oil and gas reservoirs in order to maximize oil and gas recovery. These measurements will increase the data density of these reservoirs immensely. Based on the Proof of Concept performed by Delft University of Technology, the technology can be used successfully in oil and gas reservoirs for different applications like monitoring, geosteering and wireline logging.
The project, which will cover 36 months in total, is divided in two phases:
- The shallow prototype tool (month 0-13): The development of the technology in shallow subsurface circumstances. In this phase, a fully operational tool will be developed and manufactured for easy environmental circumstances. The measurement system will contain all the characteristics that it will have in the final deep subsurface tool. The end product of Phase 1 is a fully operational system in circumstances up to maximum 30 m depth under normal surface level temperatures and very modest pressures.
- The HPHT full service tool (month 14-36): All the necessary changes that need to be made to adapt the tool to the HPHT (high-pressure high-temperature) circumstances, will be included.
Risk management is the primary reason for this two-phase development process. The two phases represent the best approach for evaluation of all the risk factors, both technically and financially.
