Integrated field development study, Kirkuk field, Iraq
RPS delivered a major integrated field study of the Kirkuk Field in Iraq during 2004 to 2006.
The Kirkuk field was discovered in 1927 and comprises a long, sinuous anticline about 105 km long and 3-5 km wide. The anticline is orientated in a NW-SE direction with 5 separate culminations or domes, known as the Zab, Khurmala, Avanah, Baba respectively and Tarjil Domes, as illustrated in the satellite image below. Oil is present in several reservoirs including the Middle-Upper Miocene, Oligocene, Eocene, Palaeocene, and in the Lower and Upper Cretaceous.

Recommendations on Optimum Development Plan
An optimised grid design was needed to provide the required level of detail while minimising run-times in the simulator. The main objectives of the 3D model were to assess the volumes of hydrocarbon in-situ and to provide a basis for scoping simulations of various development scenarios for the ultimate purpose of economic modelling.
