Tech Talk - Improving horizontal well flow at Berri and Ghawar

The very size of the reservoirs of oil in Saudi Arabia means that as the dominant method of water flooding is used to sweep oil to the producing wells, not all the oil in place migrates as hoped. Some remains in place, and this makes up a very significant volume of possible lost production. This is particularly true in reservoirs such as the Hanifa and Hadriya reservoirs at Berri, where water flooding since 1975 has largely flooded the field. Recognizing this problem, Aramco has increasingly usedsophisticated mathematical models of the various reservoirs to help locate these remaining pools, searching for oil volumes that could be successfully recovered. As, the models were increasingly able to divide the reservoir into smaller and smaller fractions over time, so the presence of these pools became increasingly apparent. Proof of their existence then came through drilling. ...
