Abstract:Thin oil rim reservoirs are mostly characterized by development and production challenges; one of which is early water coning tendency. In the Niger Delta, most developed critical oil rate correlations to avert coning focused on conventional bottom-water drive reservoirs, while thin oil rim reservoirs received limited attention. Available correlations to estimate critical oil rate of thin oil rim reservoirs in Niger Delta are based on generic reservoir models, which does not consider the reservoir heterogeneit… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
