Breathing New Life into Aging Fields in the North Sea

Breathing New Life into Aging Fields in the North Sea

As new technology emerges, operators are turning their focus to redeveloping mature fields, creating a new focus for oil and gas companies. This growing demand has pressed companies in the service sector to broaden their skills and address a wider range of reservoir and production problems. Problems that are typical of aging fields are: wellstream pressure, increased volumes of produced water, solids production, loss of oil recovery and loss of compression.

Rigzone has compiled a list of five mature fields in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea that are currently being redeveloped to increase the field's life span and enhance production output.

Your paper talking about new technology in order to redeveloped mature fields to increase performance and enhance oil recovery it is an important issue. thank for it. My question is: the operators of those aged fields are using engineers with workover experience with zero experience in North Sea waters.If you have some information about it, please let me know it.
