A key management guideline for water-driven, naturally fractured reservoirs (NFR) is to minimize water production. Water breakthrough is undesirable as it reduces oil production rate and lowers oil recovery. Managing these reservoirs involves delaying water breakthrough and mitigating its effects. This paper describes a cross-disciplinary workflow, which serves such purposes by making use of downhole pressure gauges (DHG) pressure data-based well models along with a dynamically validate…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
