SAGD Optimization

Tachyus' Data Physics platform powers the Baryon web application that producers can leverage to cut costs and increase production in SAGD operations.

Minimize Steam Costs

Cut opex by reducing injection while maintaining production.

Increase Production

Predict production response and redistribute steam accordingly.

Optimize Steam Volumes

Identify the optimal injection volume well pair-by-well pair.

Increase Efficiency

Empower engineers to accomplish more in less time.

Forecast Financial Impact

Visualize the financial impact of modifications on field-wide performance.

Streamline Surveillance

Smart algorithms drive decision-making.

Data Physics has been used to model thousands of injection rate modifications. Predicted financial impact has been validated across more than half a dozen fields.

“The incremental value for steamflood operators of using Data Physics technology for heat management is a game changer, particularly in the current economic environment.”

How Baryon Works

Baryon users can leverage fast optimization algorithms to mitigate risk while determining the best possible use of steam. 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 production and maximizing recovery across a range of operational and development plans for SAGD.

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 SAGD response. Engineers use Baryon 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 well pair and completion performance, potential steam redistribution plans and expected drilling response. Baryon reports are accessible on command-center displays, workstations, and tablets in the field. It has never been easier for engineers to keep track of SAGD operations and to share reports and analysis with colleagues.
