Stable and Unstable Displacement in the Field Development Plan


Nature controls much of what we have to work with when developing an oil reservoir, in particular fluid properties, gravity and capillary forces.

But we get to control the viscous forces by designing offtake rates and well spacing. The relative strengths of viscous, capillary and gravity forces help to determine the recoveries we can achieve.

Mark Cook, AGR's Principal Reservoir Engineer, helps to understand the consequences of our development choices using graphic images and practical demonstrations, set against a dramatic reservoir outcrop in North East Scotland. Watch the video here.

You can also download our cheat sheet which highlights the most important aspects described in the "Reservoir Dynamic Behaviour" chapter from the Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production book co-written by Mark.

Deterministic vs Probabilistic Planning Method

The ability to show the management that the calculated well costs are based on realistic operations and prices for services is important as this allows them to see that the risks have also been identified and quantified.
