Seismic well tie is a critical process to verify the time-depth relationship of a well. This process requires density and sonic transit time data. However, sonic logs are usually not acquired due to cost saving, unfavorable well path, or other operational issues. Attempts to generate synthetic logs by Gardner equation, porosity correlation, or dept...
Conference Paper
Greater Bongkot North is a gas field located in Gulf of Thailand and on production since 1993. Most of the old wellhead platforms (30%) lack remote well test facilities which requires personnel visits for any well test measurement. Often, well testing in these platforms get lower priority compared to other operations in a matured field. This projec...

Pru Krathiam (PKM) is a small onshore, unconsolidated sandstone reservoir in Thailand containing medium heavy oil with viscosity of approximately 50 cp. Fluvial channels supplied sediments to form mouth bar sands in lake with sand thickness of 1 to 3 meters. In its 25 years of natural depletion, the field has achieved merely 1.7% recovery factor. T...
