Abstract: Abstract 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…
