Paper Number: SPE-198096-MS
... Coiled Tubing was chosen as the most efficient, reliable and cost-effective technique to revive oil production from 12 dead wells. The results of this pilot project were very satisfactory. The technique involves running coiled tubing inside the production tubing of a dead oil well, the coiled tubing...

... Abstract Historically, it has been a challenge to analyze and predict water cut or water production. While predicting water production may seem less relevant as compared to oil production, produced water poses many challenges. The difficulty rises when surface facilities cannot handle the water...
