Covering more than 6,000 sq km - almost half the surface area of Qatar - the field is a carbonate reservoir with thickness of 1,500 ft, although this varies considerably through the reservoirs.
Also, as a result of uncertainty related to sufficient volume of the Dunmore Jurassic carbonate reservoir, which encountered hydrocarbon shows in an approximately 20 feet thick section, Atlantic Petroleum has decided to write-off costs of approximately EUR12.0m.
Chevron Corporation (NYSE: CVX), a US based energy company engaged in oil and natural gas industry, has announced that a company subsidiary, Saudi Arabian Chevron (SAC), has achieved first steam injection at the Large Scale Pilot (LSP) steam-flood project at the Wafra Field, an Eocene heavy-oil carbonate reservoir in the onshore Partitioned Neutral Zone (PNZ).
Rock typing is an essential step in the process of the carbonate reservoir characterization and geological modeling, and it is the method of classifying reservoir rocks which have the same fluid flow features into groups [1-6].
There are no obvious oil and gas shows in the target layer, but some reservoir bitumen shows were found in the Devonian carbonate reservoir. The major objectives of this study were to (1) investigate the distribution characteristics of solid bitumen in the Devonian carbonate reservoir of well DS1 by physical property observation; (2) document the thermal maturity of the reservoir solid bitumen by reflectivity detection and chemical structure indexes analysis; (3) reconstruct the burial and thermal maturity history of bituminous reservoir based on the erosion thickness restoration and basin modeling technique.
In the event of a discovery it is predicted that the first and shallowest reservoir (Birsa sandstone) could contain oil, whereas the final and deepest reservoir (Abiod carbonate reservoir) would most likely contain
"We will enhance heavy oil production through the use of carbonated water, and it will be the world's first thermally assisted GOGD facility of this size in a fractured carbonate reservoir," says Al-Siyabi.
In Kirkuk, production also comes from an older Eo-Paleocene carbonate reservoir.
(3) What mechanisms were responsible for the formation of the carbonate reservoir of the Lianglitag Formation in the Tahe Oilfield in the Tarim Basin?
PDO is implementing a number of EOR projects in the Marmul oilfield in southern Oman, in the Harweel field and in Qarn Alam, which marks the world's first commercial application of steam-assisted gas-oil gravity drainage in a fractured carbonate reservoir.
