Optimised base production in unconventionals, reducing production loss level to less than 3%

Business challenge

Our client needed to identify improvements and launch a comprehensive program to optimise their base production.

Context

An upstream oil and gas company's new wells were Capex intensive and production in a mature oilfield (>4,000 wells) was declining significantly.

The assets presented challenges given complex reservoir characteristics and short production lifespan of new wells. The production system required the management of a highly complex secondary recovery infrastructure.
