Value from Advanced Wells (VAWE)


Phase 1 (2014-2016)



The Value from Advanced Wells (VAWE) project focuses on the Added Value achievable from the design and Operation of Advanced Wells. The JIP has been built-up experience over the previous 15 years generated during the earlier phases (IWFsT phase I & II and IWsT). It is developing evaluation methodologies and techniques for well design and monitoring, well control as well as well and field optimisation. These VAWE and earlier developed tools are illustrated by their use for analysis of sponsor supplied case studies.

The JIP is steered by the sponsors; the objectives of the current JIP phase 2014/16 and achievements of the previous phases are listed below.
