We developed an independent deterministic and probabilistic reserves assessments for this giant field in Kazakhstan in accordance with PRMS standards. This field is a super giant carbonate structure that is significantly overpressured
We developed a fully integrated geological and reservoir simulation model for the field. The work included full assessment and interpretation of a 2D seismic data set, development of a static geological model and a dynamic reservoir model. We carried out modelling to determine the optimum configuration for a gas re-injection scheme. We also carried out conceptual field development planning to determine the associated surface production scheme.
The special features we considered included: fracture modelling and prediction to determine potential contribution to reserves; analysis of Soviet era well tests, well logs and seismic data
We prepared reserves certification statements in accordance the PRMS standard and in accordance with regulations set down by Kazakhstan’s State Reserves Committee.
