Well productivity 2002

Project ID: ENK6-CT-2000-00067
Funded under: FP5-EESD


The project Well Productivity 2002 (WP-2002) was part of the EU and coordinated by RF-Rogaland Research. The partners in the project were: RF-Rogaland Research (Stavanger, Norway), Reservoir Laboratories AS (Trondheim, Norway), M-I Drilling Fluids U.K. Ltd. (Aberdeen, UK), Rhodia Chimie SA (Paris, France) and ENI Tecnologie SpA (Milan, Italy).
An industry group; BP, Norsk Hydro, Shell Norway, ChevronTexaco and ENI have sponsored the project.
The overall goal of the project was to protect the production potential of hydrocarbon reservoirs. To reach this goal, a strategy with four major elements has been defined:
- Developing cost-effective laboratory and field diagnostic methods to characterise and quantify the undamaged and potentially impaired production potential of a reservoir
- Conducting systematic applied research on well fluid design with special consideration given to the formation damaging effects of well fluids, and the underlying mechanisms
- Developing cost-effective field practices for maximising well deliverability
- Creating a simulation tool to support well planners decisions
