See the May 2016 issue of JPT for our Technology Update article on Mature Flood Surveillance Using Streamlines. В With the recent drop in oil prices, operators are shifting to optimization of existing assets with minimal costs. For mature floods (water, chemical, and CO2), one low-cost optimization strategy is the intelligent adjustment of well-rate targets. While it is easy to identify high-water-cut or high-water-rate producers, it is not obvious to identify which injectors are contributing to oil production or fluid cycling. This makes setting injection targets a guessing game at best without a calibrated reservoir (simulation) model. Full article.
