A smart well is a well that is equipped with some devices improving the recovery of oil fields with the integration of the device performances. By using this technology the Capex, Opex, and interventional costs of oil fields will be decreased and more hydrocarbon can be produced as a result of the improved reservoir management. For these purposes and also for the added value of this technology, the smart well pilot has been designed. This setup, like other setups, needs to be designed according to our purpose. The design should simulate the real operating conditions of oil wells. These similarities are important in the aspects of hydrodynamics (such as pipe diameters, rate, etc.), operation (such as operational pressure and temperature) and thermodynamics similarity (such as operating fluid type). The pilot was designed with respect to the real oil reservoirs to support pressures up to 3,000 psi, temperatures up to 200 °F, and oil flow rates up to 2,000 bbl per day. In addition, after designing and constructing the pilot, a computer package was programmed for the real-time demonstration of the data acquired from sensors including pressure, temperature, and flow rate. The main characteristic of this software is the ability to retrieve and save data, demonstrate data online, calculate the physical fluid properties, and also determine the flow regime. Furthermore, for testing the reliability and confidence of the package results, the results obtained were compared with those of a few different commercial packages and experimental data; acceptable results were obtained.
