  • Publication number: 20220145734
    Abstract: A system for automatic in-situ gas lifting of fluid in a multilateral well may include a plurality of downhole sensors arranged to periodically capture pressure data associated with the multilateral well is disclosed. The system may include a processor operatively connected to the downhole sensors and configured to dynamically determine a pressure gradient value associated with the multilateral well based on the periodically captured pressure data. The system may include a first inflow control valve (ICV) operatively connected to the processor and placed within a first lateral to automatically control a flow of a gas from a downhole natural gas source into the multilateral well based on the dynamically determined pressure gradient, and to cause a lift of the fluid received from a second lateral within the well when the ICV is open.

  • Patent number: 10689978
    Abstract: A method of determining gelation time is disclosed that includes placing a composite core plug into a core holder of a commercially-available vessel. The composite core plug includes a first core plug with second and third core plugs disposed on opposite sides of the first core plug. The second and third core plugs are saturated with polymer solution, and the first core plug is saturated with gel solution comprising polymer and crosslinker. The method further includes alternating polymer solution injections between a first injection area located on the second core plug and a second injection area located on the third core plug, while ensuring that the polymer solution is being continuously fed to the composite core plug. The pressure drop across the composite core plug is monitored during the alternating injection of polymer solution to determine the gelation time of the gel solution in the first core plug.
