A comprehensive approach to Conformance Engineering, otherwise known as the battle against unwanted production, will be presented over the next three issues. The hope is that this series creates discussion within the industry and assists efforts to control unnecessary water or gas production. In general, these articles focus on problems associated with water conformance, but many cases with gas floods have similar needs.
With focused Conformance Engineering efforts, there is general agreement that the most critical element of solving conformance problems starts with understanding the problem. People often come to us saying that they have a “water” problem. We try to change their perspective by telling them that water is only a symptom of the problem. At that time, we don’t know if this is “good water” or “bad water.” Good water may be defined as water that is part of a normal flooding process, which is also bringing some reasonable amount of oil.
