The The Optimum Reservoir Performance of Nahr Umr/Ratawi Oil Field
Reservoir study has been developed in order to get a full interesting of the Nahr Umr formation in Ratawi oil field. Oil in place has been calculated for Nahr Umr which was 2981.37 MM BBL. Several runs have been performed to get matching between measured and calculated of oil production data and well test pressure. In order to get the optimum performance of Nahr Umr many strategies have been proposed in this study where vertical and horizontal wells were involved in addition to different production rates. The reservoir was first assumed to be developed with vertical wells only using production rate of (80000–125000) STB/day. The reservoir is also proposed to produce using horizontal wells besides vertical wells with production rate of (80000-150000) STB/day. The best strategy was by adding 33 new vertical wells and 5 horizontal wells beside the 11 existing wells where the results show oil plateau of 9 years and 7 months and recovery factor of 3.4%.
