Abstract

By depletion of reservoir, water encroachment occurs and wells were shut-in by heavy column and salty water deposition in the tubing, the decision of lifting wells was taken and wells were converted to Gas-Lift, by injecting Gas and Water in the same annulus to straighten up the field daily production about 30% (2000 m3/d).

Current Production is reached 1500 m3/d, caused by dynamic change in reservoir and operating parameters, the necessity to introduce an innovative technology to improve recovery is strongly recommended.

Data collected in real time from field is used and integrated in nodal analysis software, to optimize the Gas-lift allocation and maximizing wells production vs. Gas injection.

Examples from field are used and a case study of integrated system is illustrated.

Data Management system will be fed automatically from the field, this will increase accuracy by eliminating human error.
