Heuristic Scheduling for Cyclic Steam Injection Projects Academic Article uri icon


  • This article presents a well steam injection scheduling model which attempts to maximize the profit per day for oil production leases. The model consists of nonlinear regression, nonlinear optimization and a scheduling algorithm. Weekly well production data from a production reporting system is utilized to extend the system to a reporting, operating control and planning system. Thus, it not only provides management with production history but analysis tools for better decisions as well. 1973 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
