Through the use of reservoir simulation, consideration of operational conditions and constraints, and application of economic analysis, an Optimum Plan of Depletion for a geologically complex reservoir located in a high operating cost environment has been formulated. This paper describes the approach used to formulate the depletion plan. Additionally, the reservoir model lends itself to extensive future use in evaluating operational changes and providing the necessary data to determine the economic viability of any potential changes. The model is and will continue to be a valuable reservoir management tool.
