AIE has recently conducted a study on a major geothermal well operation utilizing our WIMS software, VeracityWells. The objective of the pilot study was to risk assess complex high-temperature and pressure (HPHT) geothermal wells.
Key documents were critically reviewed and NORSOK D10-compliant integrity assessments were performed to appraise and justify the final status of primary and secondary well barriers, and provide additional mitigation requirements on a risk-based interval.
As a result of the integrity assessment, AIE advised the client on critical well barrier remediation actions, including:
VeracityWells is integrated with our VeracityCCM corrosion management software. A base line corrosion assessment was performed which concluded:
As a result, AIE recommended a more robust approach to analyse water chemistry, flow rates, operating conditions, and sand data to model and assess corrosion probabilities.
AIE is an holistic integrity management service provider. VeracityWells, a module on the Veracity software provides a tailored solution based on a 2 barrier philosophy. The software allows users to set up a well, locate it on the map using geo coordinates, and select and categorise well barriers along with the threats and mitigation techniques. Integrity Assessment is then performed to determine if each barrier meets the design, test, and monitoring requirements with reference to the choice of standard, for example, NORSOK. The probability of failure and consequence of failure is assigned on the basis of the risk matrix. Users can also generate plans for monitoring / mitigation activities with frequency, based on recommendations.
