ABSTRACT
The waterflood project was established in the
Widuri field, Asri Basin, Southeast Sumatra in 2000
and involved three major oil fields as pilots: Widuri,
Intan, and Vita. The biggest challenges during water
flooding applications are to maintain the well, keep
the rate stable, and minimize the declining
production. Engineering efforts combined with
subsurface integration have been applied to maintain
the pressure to keep the oil production stable.

Building the water distribution map using a 3D


geological model.
Remaining reserves evaluation pre and post
water out.
Production and injection rate from injector well.
Performing good injection management.
Evaluating the possibility of a watered out well
due to the highest water injection rate.

The Widuri H well is one of the success cases.


The well was successfully put back online to
produce at a significant oil rate after having been
declared as watered out. The Widuri H was
drilled in September, 2007 as part of a water flood
management project with 32 feet SSTVD oil and gas
pay.

The well has been back in production since August


2010. The integration of subsurface and engineering
problem-solving ensured that the water out well
was able to produce again.

The well has been producing for two years from


December 2007 with cumulative oil production of
123.8 MBO. In May 2009, the well watered out at
100% water cut. The production profile showed that
the water cut suddenly increased one month before
completely watering out.

The CNOOC SES Ltd. Offshore Southeast Sumatra


PSC is located in the Java Sea between the islands
of Java and Sumatra. Within 11,046 sq. km of the
concession, there are the Sunda, Asri, and Hera
basins (Figure 1).

An integrated analysis was performed to evaluate


the cause and whether this well still had oil potential
on the 34-1 sand reservoir. Several evaluations were
conducted as follows:

Applied integrated three- (3D) and fourdimensional (4D) seismic to evaluate the
subsurface condition.
Deepening reservoir targets on the offset
proposal Widuri A well.

INTRODUCTION

In the early PSC stages, the Asri basin was hardly


explored and was excluded from the exploration
portfolio from 1983 to 1987 because of a perceived
lack of potential source rock and a low temperature
gradient (Wight et al., 1997). After discovering the
Intan (1987) and Widuri fields (1988) of this basin,
it was proven that there were large oil fields with
reservoirs in Talang Akar sandstone.
Reservoirs in the Talang Akar Formation (TAF) of
the Widuri field comprise seven reservoirs: 33-4,
33-6, 34-1, 34-2, 35-1, 35-2, and 36-1. The
shallower reservoirs, which include 34-1, are part of
the depletion drive reservoir mechanism. The other
reservoirs are strong water drive reservoirs.
