Inwell measurement of rates and ratios do not allow operators to proactively control flow into the well. For intelligent fields there is a growing need for tools that enable engineers to ‘see’ further into the reservoir in order to adjust and/or change the flow control strategy as required. From a reservoir management perspective the most value can be achieved when implementing intelligent flow control systems coupled with surveillance tools. Hence, this study presents a way of defining a fit for purpose surveillance strategy that can be coupled with active flow control systems that facilitates the optimisation of the recovery efficiency.
