Efficient Water Management for NZE

The amount of water injected, produced and discharged to sea in aging fields on the NCS is increasing. Water handling is energy-intensive and costly, thus efficient water management is crucial for field economics and effective management will help to protect the environment.

Research questions
  1. How can water production and recirculation be minimized by conformance control technologies?
  2. How can produced water re-injection (PWRI) become an opportunity for improved recovery and can it be combined with CO2 applications, such as CO2/WAG?
  3. How can tracers be used to measure reservoir thief zones for water-shutoff operations?
