Reservoir description and development of a mature oil field

Demiral, B
Gumrah, F
Okandan, E
The Mishovdag oil field is located in the southwest of Baku, Azarbaijan. The sandstone reservoirs consisting of five middle Pliocene age Horizons I, II, Ill, IV, and XII provide 40% of total total oil production from the Sirvan oil field region. The reservoir trap is an anticline, and its size is approximately 15 x 5 km. Since its discovery in 1956, 516 wells had been drilled and 198 of them are still producing from successive layers of sandstone formations.


Geostatistical evaluation of well logs in reservoir charachterization in Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli field
Rzazade, Rahim; Karahanoğlu, Nurkan; Department of Geological Engineering (2013)
The Azeri-Chirag-Guneshli (ACG) field is situated offshore of Caspian Sea Azerbaijan sector. It is an elongated anticline in structure and the reservoir section consists of mainly sandstone. Recoverable reserves are calculated to be 5.4 bbl of oil (Binyatov 2008). Sedimentary environment corresponding to this region is mainly fluvio-deltaic. The main aim of this study is to obtain better understanding of two main prolific hydrocarbon reservoir Pereriv B and Pereriv D by integration of well logs and core dat...
Modeling permian petroleum system of Netherlands: hydrocarbon generation and migration
Mert-Gauthier, Esra; Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Özacar, Atilla Arda; Department of Geological Engineering (2010)
Groningen Gas Field is located within the southern part of the South Permian Basin in the northeast Netherlands. Since several wells have been producing from the Carboniferous-Permian Petroleum System, the field is considered as mature for hydrocarbon exploration. More detailed work is necessary to evaluate further exploration and development opportunities. Thus, evaluation of the subsurface has been carried out as part of the petroleum system concept by using the basin modeling. In this study, seismic inte...
Sedimentological, cyclostratigraphic analysis and reservoir characterization of Balakhany X Formation within the productive series Azeri Field on C01 well (Offshore Azerbaijan)
Binyatov, Elnur; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Department of Geological Engineering (2008)
The Azeri, Chirag, Gunashli (ACG) field is located offshore Azerbaijan. The reservoirs are multilayered sandstones forming traps within a major anticlinal structure. Proven crude oil reserves are estimated to contain 5.4 billion barrels of oil. In the past this area has been studied in regional detail but not at the reservoir scale with respect to the fluvio-deltaic sediments filling the northern shore of the ancient South Caspian Sea. The aim of this study is carried out the sedimentological, cyclostratigr...
Geological considerations for the economic evaluation of oil shale deposits in Turkey
Şener, Mehmet; Şengüler, Ilker; Kök, Mustafa Verşan (Elsevier BV, 1995-7)
Geological information is given on four oil shale fields in middle and western Anatolia: Himmetoǧlu, Seyitömer, Beypazari{dotless} and Hati{dotless}ldaǧ. Some petrological, geochemical, Fischer assay and fluidized bed combustion test results for the oil shales are also presented. As a result of economic evaluation, it was concluded that Himmetoǧlu oil shale is the most appropriate for domestic and industrial utilization.
Foraminiferal biostratigraphy and sequence stratigraphy across the mid-Carboniferous boundary in the Central Taurides, Turkey
Atakul-Ozdemir, Ayse; Altıner, Demir; Altıner, Sevinç; Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-10-01)
The Aladag Unit is one of the main tectonic units in the Tauride Belt, located in southern Turkey. It includes a continuous Paleozoic carbonate sequence encompassing the mid-Carboniferous boundary, with outcrops being especially well exposed in the Hadim region. The boundary succession lithology is mainly composed of carbonates with intercalated quartz arenitic sandstone layers. Based on foraminifers, four biostratigraphic zones have been defined in the interval from the Upper Serpukhovian to the Lower Bash...
