Abstract

Abstract Implementation of well completions enabling multiple hydrocarbon reservoirs to be produced by a single well can save production cost and enhance recovery. Aiming at the characteristics of the three types of oil and gas reservoirs in the Jabung block in Indonesia, namely, gas cap oil-rim reservoirs, multiple hydrocarbon reservoirs, and heterogeneous multiple-sand reservoirs, this article puts forward optimized completion methods by using conventional technology and down-hole equipment. The new methods are able to develop multireservoir sands at the same time or successively without additional completion jobs. In addition, the novel completion enables water injection wells to selectively control injection and improve the recovery of hydrocarbons. The above strategies have been applied to different types of reservoirs, providing an effective mean for maximizing hydrocarbon recovery, controlling operating expenditures, and improving the overall benefit of development wells.
