Benchmark Production Performance and Recovery Techniques
Globally, billions of barrels of oil can be monetised through the application of improved and enhanced recovery techniques as demonstrated by the successful polymer flood of several offshore giant fields. Information derived from the use of appropriate analogues comprising the most successfully developed fields can help rejuvenate production and maximise ultimate recovery. Identifying opportunities for reserve growth requires a detailed knowledge of what the most efficient producers are doing under comparable geologic and engineering circumstances. Analogues can help determine which improved and enhanced oil recovery techniques are likely to be most efficient for a given reservoir.
