Oil Field Development Design And Analysis

VNIIneft JSC has a portfolio of projects on development of the largest oil fields in the country, such as Samotlorskoye, Romashkinskoye, Tuimazinskoye etc.

The accumulated experience, matching staff, and modern software allow performing sets of tasks associated with design of complex development targets, including.

  • designing development of major fields with an immense well stock and a large complex of production facilities;
  • preparing design process documentation for development of fields with fractured collectors;
  • creating and continuously supporting geology and hydrodynamics models of complex deposits with fractured collectors;
  • monitoring the development based on generalization of field-geologic data and results of geology and hydrodynamics modeling and studies;
  • justifying the selection and analyzing the efficiency of geological and engineering operations;
  • preparing and supervising the program of field and laboratory field studies;
  • modeling fractured foundation;
  • analyzing the state of development and hydrocarbon reserves recovery;
  • carrying out hydrodynamics modeling, studying various options of production facility isolation, assessing their efficiency and justifying the optimum option;
  • designing and making process solutions concerning development of multi-zone complex oil fields;
  • supporting development projects in terms of well drilling, penetration, and completion, oil, gas, and water recovery, preparation, and transportation, and reservoir pressure maintenance system operation;
  • providing economic assessment of design and actual hydrocarbon deposit development parameters;
  • justifying sustainable utilization and protection of subsurface resources, environmental protection, and provision of ecological safety in subsurface use;
  • conducting research and development concerning selection of optimum operating conditions for wells and downhole equipment, increase of reliability of lifting equipment, studies in the field of discrete-continuous gas lift technologies, optimization of drilling parameters, well penetration and completion.
