Oil can be recovered naturally from the reservoir by difference drive mechanism such as Depletion drive, Gas cap drive, Water drive, Combination drive. When this drive mechanism becomes depleted or production need to be enhanced, secondary or tertiary oil recovery techniques are used.
Determination of optimal number of injector wells and the best well pattern for the injection wells is a very important step in reservoir development plan in order to maximize production at a minimal cost. Optimization of injector well numbers was done by testing five different patterns by four, eight, and twelve injector wells.
Results show that all the injector well pattern best work with increased number of injectors for this case except the staggered line drive. Economic analysis show maximum Goss Profit Margin from all the cases but staggered line drive had a better profitability index than the rest.
Further studies need to be done with varying pressure, production and injection rates so as to completely prove if the results found are true.
