Nearly 40% of today’s oil production comes from mature fields, and this production is increasing. A significant por-tion of operating costs in brownfields is related to lifting costs and artificial lift equipment. Often additional costs for workovers arise because of suboptimal corrosion control, when sand production becomes an issue (unconsolidated reservoirs), or as a result of a long waterflood history. Any combination of these problems can lead to premature abandonment of the field despite the fact that significant oil and gas reserves remain in the reservoir. To combat this loss of reserves and valuable energy resource, a number of measures must be taken. The presentation will provide a field case showing the process and will give a detailed insight of the basket of technical solutions and commercial impact.


Siegfried Muessig is a technology and quality manager at RAG, Vienna, Austria. He holds a diploma and PhD degree in physics from the University of Karlsruhe, Germany. Throughout his career Muessig was dedicated to innovative technologies when conventional solutions failed. He has published 35 technical papers and hold six patents. Muessig is a guest lecturer at the University of Leoben, Austria.
