Abstract

Identification of by-passed oil is the key to unlock the remaining potential of mature fields. Locating and quantifying the size of oil pools is necessary to justify a range of in-well activates and plan in-fill drilling. This paper presents a new algorithm for reservoir engineers to generate seamlessly and regularly (at desired frequency) up-to-date remaining and moveable oil maps, within days of receiving the latest production and surveillance data.
