Sirius completes Ororo field model to help drilling campaign

COSL Power jack-up rig, selected for the Ororo field drilling campaign.

Sirius Petroleum, the Nigeria-focused oil and gas development and production company, has completed a mechanical earth model (MEM) of the Ororo field offshore Nigeria.

Sirus, now an operating company, said on Tuesday that the MEM was completed in cooperation with Schlumberger Nigeria, which was hired for the provision of an integrated services management at the Ororo field back in December 2016.

According to information on Schlumberger’s website, an MEM is a numerical representation of the geomechanical state of the reservoir, field, or basin. In addition to property distribution (e.g., density, porosity) and fracture system the model incorporates pore pressures, state of stress, and rock mechanical properties. The stresses on the reservoir are caused by the overburden weight, any superimposed tectonic forces, and by production and injection

Sirius added on Tuesday that the MEM would facilitate a more rigorous completions program on Ororo-2 and Ororo-3 wells, and was designed to maximize the production and reservoir management plans. The MEM will also be used to help develop the future Ororo development drilling campaign.

Sirius expects to drill the Ororo-2 well in the first quarter of 2018 and access the contingent oil and gas resources in the Ororo field with an early production scheme through an extended well test generating an initial estimated rate of approximately 2,700 bopd. The rig for the drilling campaign has already been secured.

In addition, Cameron, a Schlumberger company, has already delivered two sets of SOLIDrill modular compact wellhead equipment for use on the Ororo field.
