Intelligent Completion With Injection Control Targets Maximum RecoveryCompletion system seeks to boost overall recovery by 5%
A customer’s field located off the coast of Malaysia began producing in 1996 and is currently undergoing a re-development phase to maximize the overall recovery of the reservoir. The original recovery target was 40%; however, with technological advancements, 45% recovery is now the target. A series of injector wells will be placed at key locations around the oilsaturated zones and filtered sea water will be injected to drive the remaining oil to surface.
The project began in March 2010 and the first six injector wells were completed ahead of schedule and under budget. The time to complete these wells was only eight weeks and with 655 hours of HS&E-free operations.
For maximum recovery, Baker Hughes deployed SureSENS permanent downhole pressure and temperature gauges for monitoring, coupled with the HCM-A for precise control of hydraulically actuated, adjustable control valves. To separate each injection zone, PACE feed-through packers were run to straddle each zone. Finally, a PREMIER feed-through packer was run on the upper section to provide V0 isolation.
