Mature oilfields are often characterised by increased water production. This results in costly water treatment and reduced oil processing capacity. Unwanted produced water may stem from well integrity failure, wellbore tortuosity, high waterflood injection rates, high permeability channelling, thief zones or injector / producer well spacing as well as water coning. Identifying the source of excessive water production and mitigating for its costly impact is critical during field development in reducing costs and maximising oil production.
Our tracers can help you optimise oil production using inflow, interwell and completion integrity tracers. Download our case study below to learn more about how our customer gained valuable insight from our tracer results to allow them to make changes to the water injection well, rebalance the overall waterflood and mitigate excessive water production.
