Waterflooding Management and Identifying IOR Opportunities in a Mature Reservoir
This thesis has identified opportunities to improve production performance by utilizing secondary and tertiary recovery strategies in a mature oil reservoir. The identification techniques include analytical methods and simulation studies on field performance. Recommendations based on the field study and well performance were provided. A reservoir simulation study was carried out using Eclipse to conduct production predictions based on the recommendation. It can be concluded that infill drilling is the most effective way to develop this field and increase oil recovery. The result of this work will help the operator to improve reservoir management of the field and will also provide guidance in identifying areas that are suitable for a new infill drilling campaign.
