Al Manzah Fractured Carbonate Oil Field, Tunisia

Al Manzah Fractured Carbonate Oil Field, Tunisia

The field is a complex reservoir system that is severely faulted, and highly fractured with an initial pressure near the bubble point resulting in a propensity toward free gas production. Characterization of the fracture network was achieved through FMI Logs and well test interpretation. A dual porosity/permeability reservoir simulation model was used to study the discovery well’s production performance. History matching of the model required a detailed understanding of flow mechanisms in the reservoir. The GOR response, flowing bottom hole pressure and reservoir pressure were matched to provide further development direction.
