This paper presents a case history study that demonstrates monitoring bottom-hole well deliverability performance for flowing oil-wells completed in layered reservoirs. The field of study is the recently developed Xijiang 24-3 Field, offshore China in the Pearl River Mouth Basin. Development of the bottom-hole backpressure curve for individual layer packages and total well are presented as a reservoir management tool. A combination of individual layer production well tests, production logging tool (PLT) measurements and permanent downhole bottom-hole pressure readings are utilized to develop the total well bottom-hole backpressure curve. Pre-gravel pack and post-gravel pack results are discussed and compared to daily production measurements. The bottom-hole backpressure curve is shown to be an effective reservoir management tool to monitor well and reservoir performance.
