Integrated Optimization Process Advances Steamflood Performance

Duri Field in Indonesia is the largest active steamflood project in the world. The field produces 73,000 BOPD, and 10,000 optimization jobs are executed annually to support base production.

Duri Field in Indonesia is the largest active steamflood project in the world. The field produces 73,000 BOPD, and 10,000 optimization jobs are executed annually to support base production. The operator identified an opportunity to implement a new process to improve the quality of reservoir analyses, define short- and long-term reservoir depletion strategies, and increase the ability to develop a prioritized queue of executable opportunities to increase production.

Introduction

Duri Field was discovered in 1941 in the central Sumatra Basin in Riau Province. The first production-optimization effort, in 1967, used cyclic steam stimulation.
