DAKS™ for Production and EOR

Optimise Your Production Performance

Facilitate the comparison of field performance against what is possible, understand what the best-performing producing fields have done to maximise production efficiency and establish recovery factor trends.

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.

Screen Investment Opportunities

Analogue intelligence has proven to be a powerful method to screen investment opportunities in mature (or even abandoned) fields. Specific technologies, such as horizontal and multilateral drilling, under-balanced drilling or gravity-assisted thermal recovery, can be applied to reservoirs with appropriate geological and engineering parameters from analogue fields. This methodology improves decision quality, drives value, and is herein demonstrated through a case study of the Amal field, onshore Libya. Benchmarking of geologic-engineering attributes, production performance and recovery factor against global analogues can help discover critical issues and reveal new opportunities for improvement. Further analysis of the critical issues can help identify the best-performing analogues, lessons learned and potential solutions to the specific production challenges.

Why DAKS™?

  • Save significant time and cost in researching and analysing analogous global reservoirs
  • Benchmark your own fields against top performing fields
  • Test new ideas for production improvement against proven recovery methods
  • Calibrate uncertainty, stimulate creativity, reveal trends and improve confidence in recovering more oil and gas or improving production efficiency
  • Identify and learn ‘best’ production practices
  • Understand causes and effects and predict beyond the known to the unknown
  • Support reserves bookings adopting SPE / SEC guidelines
  • Devise, test and refine strategies to optimise oil and gas recovery and to rejuvenate mature fields
  • Establish a reservoir’s technical limits​

Case Study: Amal Field

Using DAKS™ to Evaluate Field Development

The Amal field, Libya, has been on production for more than 45 years but has only recovered 18% of STOIIP. Discover how DAKS™ has been used to benchmark its recovery factor against global analogues and identify good reservoir management practices to increase ultimate recovery and evaluate development opportunities.
