As industry focus shifts to more marginal plays, both in terms of technical and economic criteria, it becomes essential to understand the potential long term productivity of the reservoir at an early stage in the life of the reservoir. Often, these marginal plays have been evaluated in the past and have been deemed uneconomical for a number of reasons. With recent changes in technology (seismic reprocessing, petrophysical techniques and advances in drilling technology) these marginal fields may become attractive candidates for development.
Multi-disciplinary data integration and rationalisation, often with legacy data sets, becomes an essential tool in developing an effective reservoir management strategy. All disciplines (petrophysicists, geologists, geophysicists, reservoir engineers and production technologists, to name a few) working together to develop a life-of-field strategy has been proven to show a marked increase in overall recovery factor. Additional data acquisition planning needs to balance a cost versus benefit criterion.
Advances in drilling, completion and production technology to reduce well costs along with novel surface facility designs all combine to increase the viability of marginal field development.
An effective long term reservoir management strategy begins even before the first well in a field is drilled.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together all stakeholders necessary to consider the potential bottle-necks related to optimising a field’s production given a full understanding of the necessary components from the reservoir to the well-head.
The emphasis of the workshop is to facilitate discussion between the various stake-holders involved in marginal field reservoir management strategy. This includes:
Those involved in the development of life-of-field marginal field reservoir management strategy. These include:
