Water injection is the most common method to maintain voidage replacement and reservoir pressure, and to sweep oil towards the producing wells. Ultimate recovery is highly dependent on successful reservoir management and sweep by water injection. The ability to act on dynamic reservoir and production information is essential to maximize value. The different phases of the life cycle, from an initial ‘dry’ oil production to late life with significant water production, call for different solutions. Traditional topside development for offshore fields restricts the opportunities to effectively adapt due to high cost and lack of flexibility. Moving processes subsea with a modular approach allows for optimizing water management and, consequently, field performance in a more sustainable manner. All these technical concepts are thoroughly discussed during the webinar.
