Aqueon, Tachyus’ Waterflood Management and Optimization application has already been used to model many mature waterfloods all over the world and its real world impact validated by many operators.

“We have applied the Tachyus technology in a pilot test that represents one of our waterflooding projects obtaining satisfactory results. We want to expand the technology to other projects, with different characteristics, to continue analyzing the optimization capability of this novel tool”

How it works

In traditional reservoir management, various types of predictive models have been applied over the years for quantitative decision making. Such models range from the very simple analytical models (type-curves, etc.) to the very complex reservoir simulation models. Simulation models attempt to model detailed behavior of reservoir physics and integrate all kinds of measured data. However, many issues such as the significant time and effort required to build and calibrate these models, computational complexity, etc. generally make their practical application difficult.

Tachyus’ Data Physics is the amalgamation of the state-of-the-art in machine learning and the same underlying physics present in reservoir simulators. These models can be created as efficiently as machine learning models, integrate all kinds of data, and can be evaluated orders of magnitude faster than full scale simulation models, and since they include similar underlying physics as simulators, they have long term predictive capacity. The Data Physics based waterflood management workflow is very fast and users can go from data preparation and modeling to decisions in a matter of days. Additionally, the models can be quickly updated with new data so that they always remain operationally useful.
