Water Injection for Oil Recovery in Mishrif Formation for Amarah Oil Field
Keywords:History matching, Amarah, Water injection, Mishrif
The water injection of the most important technologies to increase oil production from petroleum reservoirs. In this research, we developed a model for oil tank using the software RUBIS for reservoir simulation. This model was used to make comparison in the production of oil and the reservoir pressure for two case studies where the water was not injected in the first case study but adding new vertical wells while, later, it was injected in the second case study. It represents the results of this work that if the water is not injected, the reservoir model that has been upgraded can produce only 2.9% of the original oil in the tank. This case study also represents a drop in reservoir pressure, which was not enough to support oil production. Thus, the implementation of water injection in the second case study of the average reservoir pressure may support, which led to an increase in oil production by up to 5.5% of the original oil in the tank. so that, the use of water injection is a useful way to increase oil production. Therefore, many of the issues related to this subject valuable of study where the development of new ideas and techniques.
