Saih Nihayda (SN) cluster is one of Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) gas assets that contributes by ∼25% out of the overall PDO gas asset's production. SN Deep is one of the biggest SN cluster fields, which was brought on stream since 2006 and started seeing water breakthrough and liquid loading as some of the late field life challenges. This paper provides an overview of successful application of foam-assisted lift (FAL) for deliquification in some wells in SN Deep field that suffered from water production where their production & uptime were heavily impacted. This paper sheds light on the challenges associated with the successful implementation of FAL in SN Deep.
