Field Development

Development department is responsible for the systematic and timely transformation of petroleum resources to reserves through integration of subsurface inputs to formulate an optimum Field Development Project/Plan (FDP) which leads to the facilities design i.e. is the custodian of the resources management throughout Exploration & Production cycle.
Currently, Development Department in Nilepet, as a national partner, is to participate, facilitate, monitor and evaluate the development plans carried out by the JOC which includes:

  1. Initiation of field development projects (FDP) studies and to decide economic evaluation of the project to determine the profitability of the field during the life-time and the cash flow allocation.
  2. Recommendation on number of development wells to be drilled.
  3. Planning for well completion & work over jobs for maintenance and/or perforation of the newly identified potential zones.
  4. Initiation of production forecasting during the life time of the field.
  5. Planning for liquid lifting mechanism whether naturally or artificially (pumps).
  6. Adopting oil production enhancement strategy through water injection or any other advanced technology.
  7. Proposing Field surface Facilities (FSF) and Field Processing Facilities (FPF).
  8. Management of the reservoir during the production life cycle.
  9. Monitoring the implementation of the recommended development plans from the studies.
