Data-Acquisition Optimization Maximizes Value of Mature Oil-Rim Reservoirs
The XamXung field offshore Sarawak, Malaysia, is a 47-year brownfield with thin remaining oil rims that have made field management challenging. The dynamic oil-rim movement has been a key subsurface uncertainty, particularly with the commencing of a redevelopment project.
PTTEP Discovers Giant Gas Deposit Offshore Malaysia
Energy consultancy Wood Mackenzie estimates the find holds some 2 Tcf of gas, making it this year’s seventh-largest discovery worldwide.
Malaysia’s Petronas is Looking Near and Far for Gas and Oil
The state-owned firm is looking within its home country, around Southeast Asia, and to the Americas—including shale—in an effort to maintain its forecast average yearly production of 1.7 million BOE/D over the next 5 years.
How Southeast Asian Upstream Operators Are Digitalizing
Malaysia’s Petronas, Shell Malaysia, and Thailand’s PTTEP are now in the midst of full-scale digital adoption. The companies are beginning to see results, but none is counting on a “big bang” in development of the technology soon.
Integrated Approach Overcomes Depleted-Reservoir Challenges
This paper describes challenges faced in a company’s first deepwater asset in Malaysia and the methods used to overcome these issues in the planning stage.
Ceramic Sand Screens Applied in Maturing Oil Field Offshore Malaysia
This paper presents the first successful application of ceramic sand screens offshore Malaysia. Ceramic sand screens were considered as a remedial sand-control method because of their superior durability and resistance compared with metallic sand screens.
Ultradeep-Field Study: Extreme-Underbalanced HP/HT Coiled-Tubing-Conveyed Perforating
An early commitment to integrate MPD into an HP/HT drilling operation can make MPD more than just an enabling tool and turn it into a performance tool that offers significant operational benefits.
Integrated Approach for Overpressure Prediction in an HP/HT Well Offshore Malaysia
Pore-pressure prediction plays an important role in well planning as exploration targets shift to deeper, overpressured reservoirs.
New Technology in a Mature East Malaysian Field
This paper describes the first job in southeast Asia in developing horizontal-well placement in a turbidite environment.
Achieving Well-Performance Optimization Through Work-Flow Automation
The Samarang oil field, offshore Sabah, Malaysia, is undergoing a redevelopment project with integrated operations. Several work flows were designed and deployed in order to achieve an early milestone of providing real-time well-performance monitoring, surveillance, and optimization.
An Integrated Methodology To Locate Oil Opportunities in Mature Reservoirs
A matured field is currently producing with greater than 85% water cut (WC) and has significant levels of uncertainty with respect to oil/water contact (OWC), flank structure, depth of spill points, production allocation, and residual oil saturation.
Novel Drilling Fluids Enable Record High-Temperature Well Offshore Malaysia
Despite hostile wellbore conditions, an operations team overcame challenges of drilling-fluid design and management to drill the first ultrahigh-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT), deep-gas well offshore Malay Peninsula.
High-Angle Frac-Pack Completions in Shallow Sands: A Case Study
Telok is a gasfield development in the Malay basin offshore Terengganu, Malaysia. This paper discusses the program learnings and operational improvements captured while completing eight new wells in 2012 and 2013.
Smart-Horizontal-Well Drilling and Completion for Thin-Oil-Rim Reservoirs in Malaysia
For thin-oil-rim reservoirs, well placement, type and path, and well-completion methods, should be evaluated with close integration of key reservoir- and production-engineering considerations.
Upgrade of Spar Topside With Comprehensive Sand-Management System
A deepwater field located offshore Sabah, east Malaysia, features a spar dry-tree unit (DTU) and multiple subsea-hub tiebacks to a floating production, storage, and offloading vessel (FPSO).
Ultra-HP/HT Drilling-Fluid for Frontier Deep Gas Exploration
This paper discusses the laboratory evaluation of potential high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) drilling-fluid designs considered for a deep gas exploration well in Malaysia.
Innovative HP/HT Drilling Practices in Malaysia: A Case Study
Despite a short 18-month planning time and very limited geological data, the TTD-1 high-pressure/high-temperature (HP/HT) exploration well in East Malaysia’s Block SK was drilled successfully.
Mature-Field Subsurface Integrity: Holistic Diagnostic Approach in Malaysia
As a field matures, there is a crucial need to focus on integrity-related issues such as hazard prevention and mitigation.
Benchmark Helps Select Best Technique for Sand Control in Field Development
This paper shares the engineering approach used to determine where and when sand control was needed in offshore Malaysia on the basis of geomechanical sand-free critical-drawdown-pressure evaluation for the selected well type, configuration, and completion.
Conformance Control and Proactive Reservoir Management Improve Deepwater Production
The K field is one of the more developed deepwater fields currently going through development in Malaysia.
Integrated-Technology Approach Enables Successful Prospect Evaluations in Malaysia
Integration of technology applications is paramount in increasing the success rate of data delivery.
