Danan and Dehluran Reservoir Simulation Updating Project

Danan and Dehluran are oil fields were discovered more than 30 years ago. These fields are located in southwest Iran, near Iran-Iraq border and approximately 200 Km northwest of Ahwaz.  The fields have been studied by both Iranian and international companies since their discovery. PPZ Co. signed a contract with Iranian Central Oil Fields Company (ICOFC) in June 2006 for consultancy and updating of the old studies within a period of 30 months. The main objectives of this project were as follows:

·         Reviewing all prior field studies

·         Evaluating Danan and Dehluran reservoir simulation models

·         Specifying reliability and application of each model

·         Selecting an appropriate reservoir simulation model for each reservoir

·         Data gathering, evaluating and re-evaluating old and new data

·         Updating the appropriate model by feeding new field data

For this project, a team of experts—geologists, geophysicists, petrophysicists, reservoir engineers, production engineers, process engineers, reservoir simulation engineers and economists cooperated actively.
