Project Objectives

The objective of the Southwest Research Institute project is to provide a more efficient program to monitor performance and leak detection in the ultra-deepwater community related to temperature and pressure differences, and to demonstrate more efficient and effective means of evaluating safety barriers critical to production operations. The modeling program is designed is to determine if complex well parameters can be reduced down to several easier-to-track features, such as time required to differentiate pressure changes due to leaks.
