Well Servicing as a Waiting Line

A. K. Soejoso


Many of the problems encountered in industry is a waiting line or queueing problem. This paper describes a pure "birth and dead" Poisson or Markovian parallel multiserver waiting line model as may be applied for well servicing activities in an oilfield or any problem situations similar in its relevant data statistics.

Convenient formulae and a composite waiting line nomograph for up to 4 (four) parallel servers are presented to assist the reader to arrive at quick estimates without making use of advanced operation research; a cost optimization model is also proposed for the field management.
