Abstract

This paper summarizes the main findings obtained from conducting reservoir simulation using ECLIPSE reservoir simulator for various oil production scenarios. These findings are important for determining and exploring the essential parameters which affect and govern the oil wells’ productivity. The simulation process began by developing a reservoir model which represents an oil producing reservoir which, laterally, was used for investigating and monitoring the oil production under various circumstances. These circumstances include water flooding and changing the locations of the wells’ perforations. Indeed, this part of the model development was established by running a comparative study to compare the oil production before and after the application of water injection. In the second stage of the model development, five simulation scenarios were run to monitor the oil production during the application of water injection and also when changing the locations of the wells’ perforations. The results obtained so far showed good development in the oil production during the optimum application and good design of water injection projects.
