Also, the Company drilled a new water disposal well, the BN-2W, on the flanks of the field, which was placed into operation following the injectivity test. This well was required prior to re-completing the existing water disposal well.
The water disposal injectivity test rate of approximately 40,000 barrels of water per day shows just how permeable the Vivian formation is," said President and Chief Executive Officer Manolo Zuniga.
A preliminary water injection study using a dynamic simulation model was completed in 2011 for the Lam 75 area and an injectivity test was conducted in June 2011.
Based on the simulation results, an injectivity test was conducted in June 2011.
Hence it appears that the entire stimulated volume is over-pressured and that as foreshadowed in our release of 17 February 2011, following the injectivity test, we have indeed connected into a naturally over-pressured zone.
"It is anticipated that the injectivity test and possibly the static kill will take place Tuesday," BP said in a brief statement on Monday.
This multidisciplinary field has become a leading technology for modeling and solving real-life combinatorial problems in fields as diverse as production planning and scheduling, product configuration, molecular biology, medical diagnosis, and robotics, and these 27 papers reflect that diversity, covering the past, present and future of constraint programming, constraint modeling and reformulation, including graphing, symmetry in constraint satisfaction problems, interval analysis in constraint propagation and applications, including an interval analysis that produces a guaranteed numerical injectivity test, local search techniques in constraint satisfaction, preferences and soft constraint and constraint programming for graphical applications.
After extended delays due to weather, crew and equipment associated with the injectivity test were mobilised to Paralana-2 (Beach 21%) in late December.
Operations to perform an injectivity test on the Paralana-2 geothermal well commenced over the last week.
"Today we will do the injectivity tests, we'll look at that information, make any adjustments to how and if we move forward with the static kill tomorrow," Kent Wells, BP's senior vice-president of exploration and production, said.
