Summary:
Many oil fields in Oman are developed with horizontal wells
to maximize productivity and develop wider drainage areas for
more cost effective recovery. Premature water breakthrough
either from water injectors or from water aquifer reduces the
wells profitability because of both reduction in net oil rate and
additional cost for water handling. To determine the best
solution to shut-off, source and nature of the water entries
must be well identified.
