Résumé / Abstract

This paper discusses the successful application of a stand-alone injection system to provide pressure support for Hanifa reservoir of Abqaiq Field, Saudi Arabia. This stand-alone injection system is a cost-effective method to provide localized powered-water injection for areas inaccessible by pipelines or costly to tie to the centralized injection facilities. Such a system has recently been successfully deployed for developing part of Abqaiq Field overlain by a residential area. The reservoir under development is relatively tight that would not effectively respond to the prevalent simple gravity dump flood, as is the case for the overlaying high-permeability Arab-D reservoir. The system consists of a single well that serves as the water supply and injector in one, and a horizontal pump. The well has a dual completion across a shallow aquifer and the target reservoir. A tubing and packer allows aquifer water to free-flow behind the tubing to a skid-mounted surface horizontal pump, where it is then boosted and injected back through the tubing to the target reservoir. The introduction of this system in a pilot well and two subsequent completions has resulted in significant cost savings versus the conventional tie-in to the centralized injection facilities. The construction of a potentially hazardous high-pressure flowlines across the population center has been avoided, while allowing the development of this part of the field, which, otherwise, would require the more expensive extended reach drilling.
