SPE 124857 - A Unified, Multidisciplinary Approach to the Planning and Design of Deepwater Waterflooding Projects

Today and in the future many of the deepwater projects in the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere around the world will be producing under waterflooding conditions to increase hydrocarbon recovery and support reservoir pressure. The success of the water injection program is critical to the overall project economics. As such a clear methodology, workflow and attention to detail are needed in the planning, design and implementation of these projects.
