How Aqueon Works

Aqueon users leverage fast optimization algorithms to mitigate risk while determining the best possible water injection plan. The Tachyus platform enables engineers to explore millions of scenarios rapidly so that instead of manually sifting through vast quantities of data, engineers can focus on managing trade-offs between cutting costs, increasing oil production and maximizing recovery across a range of operational and development plans for waterfloods.

Tachyus’ Data Physics integrates the same fundamental physical principles found in traditional reservoir simulators with data science techniques such as machine learning to rapidly predict and optimize waterflood response. Engineers use Aqueon not only to decide where and how much to inject, but also to validate the underlying predictive models powering the Tachyus platform.

Engineers can explore a wide range of visualizations of past pattern performance, potential water redistribution plans and expected drilling response. Aqueon reports are accessible on commandcenter displays, workstations, and tablets in the field. It has never been easier for engineers to keep track of waterflood operations and to share reports and analysis with colleagues.
