Paper Number: PETSOC-2008-013
... Abstract With the advent of horizontal wells a distinct change is tacitly taking place in our approach to the improved recovery of heavy oil: from displacing mobilized oil in a flood pattern from injector to producers over long distances of the order of hundreds of meters to short-distance oil...

... reduced. Results proved successful and 40 horizontal wells were drilled over the next two years. In July 2005, Trident and partner Nexen announced Corbett was the first commercial Mannville project in Alberta. In 2006, the multilateral well design was introduced to reduce drilling and artificial lift...

Introduction Anisotropic formation damage has been studied by many researchers, especially for horizontal wells. However, in all previous work it has been assumed that the damage intensity in different...

Horizontal wells could also be placed...

The method was used to investigate the surface heave profiles under horizontal well injection. It was found...

... Abstract Horizontal wells are nowadays more often exercised in developing oil and gas fields because of their potential benefit of increasing the drainage area. Complex reservoir structures often impose the use of numerical simulation when interpreting the transient pressure behaviour...

However, in several carbonate L- M oil pools the vertical wells performed as good or better than the corresponding horizontal. In an earlier study2, we had observed that whereas performance of individual...

In this area, although the most porous limestone and coarse-grained, dolomitized lithologies have been successfully produced using vertical wells, most production from the tighter, largely undolomitized rocks has been achieved only since the advent of horizontal drilling. Here, some 56 horizontal wells have...
