Through integrated characterization of highly heterogeneous submarine fan reservoirs of the Chicontepec fan system optimum location for a waterflood pilot was identified and tested. Positioned in a high quality, comparatively low heterogeneity part of the complex, results of the pilot indicate that water flooding the Chicontepec is feasible and that the reservoirs tested would benefit from a several pattern, long-term water injection program.
