Digital Transformation Increases Value in an Omani Thermal EOR Asset
A thermal asset in Oman is characterized by a large-scale steam-drive/cyclic-steam-soak (CSS) development project, underpinned by extensive data gathering.
New Steamflooding Techniques Pay Off in Mukhaizna Field
This paper covers the staged field-development methodology, including analysis and evaluation of various development concepts, that enabled the company to optimize both completion design and artificial-lift selection, reducing downtime and lowering operating costs by nearly 50%.
Permanent Fiber-Optic System Monitors Oil-Rim Movement
In this paper, the authors describe a project to design, field trial, and qualify an alternative solution for real-time monitoring of the oil rim in carbonate reservoirs that overcomes these disadvantages.
Eni To Team With BP, Others in Growing Middle East Exploration Campaign
By racking up exploration agreements in the United Arab Emirates, Oman, and Bahrain, Eni took a big step forward in its pledge to tap into the Middle East’s vast swaths of highly prospective oil and gas acreage.
Seismic Stimulation: An Eco-Friendly, Effective EOR Alternative
Seismic stimulation, achievable with the implementation of a single tool, requires significantly lower investments than gas, thermal, and chemical injection methods, with minimal environmental impact.
Multireservoir, Multinetwork Production Optimization of an Omani Reservoir
In the complete paper, a new, fully coupled implicit tool was used to model an onshore Omani asset with multiple reservoirs, each featuring different fluids and multiple networks.
A Permanent Fiber-Optic Wellbore-Fluid-Level Monitoring System
In a collaborative project, the possibility of measuring fluid levels in a wellbore by use of distributed optical pressure gauges was conceived, prototyped, field-trialed, and further developed to a point of widespread commercialization.
Shell Expands Investments in Solar Energy
Shell invested in a Singapore solar company and signed an agreement to purchase a Texas company with solar and other renewable assets. Along with its minority stake in a company that uses solar to generate steam for EOR in the Middle East, Shell catches some rays in the Asia Pacific, US, and Oman.
Pilot Steam Generator Uses Solar Energy Successfully for EOR Operations in Oman
This paper presents performance, results, and learnings from the first solar enhanced-oil-recovery (EOR) project in the Middle East/North Africa region
Achieving Drilling-Performance Improvement in Horizontal Tight-Gasfield Development
The full-field development plan for the Khazzan project in Oman is based on drilling approximately 300 wells targeting gas-producing horizons at measured depths of approximately 6000 m with 1000 m horizontal sections.
