Data derived from several appraisal wells has shown the “Success” field to be a viable development project. The field is highly faulted with a southern sealing boundary fault. Based on uncertainties that relate to trap mechanism, production rate, net-to-gross distribution, permeability heterogeneity, and size and efficiency of aquifer to provide natural drive, a three-phase production profile is designed to target four hydrocarbon-bearing sand bodies. Proposed development plan involves a depletion strategy comprising 8 water injection wells and 19 oil production wells. Prior to start-up production, flow should be simulated to monitor reservoir performance under primary and secondary recovery mechanisms. The impact of water and subsequently gas production should also be assessed to inform injection strategy for maximum oil recovery.
