17831 – Revitalisation of South Fawares field using open hole multistage completion systems – A pilot project case study

Summary

Located in the Partitioned Neutral Zone between Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, the South Fawares field has been producing from the Lower Cretaceous Ratawi reservoir since 1956. Several conventional coiled tubing acidizing treatments have been performed to restore productivity from the Ratawi formation. However, due to the formation heterogeneity, limited zonal coverage and inconsistent acid distribution, these treatments resulted in limited improvements to productivity.
