  14. Mangala, Aishwariya and Bhagyam FieldsAn EXCELLENT Dataset Summary - Available Core Analysis Data • SIXTEEN Cored Wells • Routine Core Analysis • Mostly Drilled with WBM • Mangala 1ST • First Core – Early 2004 • Water-Based Mud • Initial SCAL Data • Dean-Stark Cores • Bhagyam 5 • Mangala 7ST Company Culture of taking CORES!

  16. Validity of MICP data? Probably reasonable in high quality clean reservoirs (Honarpour - 2004 ) Main issues : Hg may not replicate reservoir fluid displacement : destructive – normally conducted on small chips : remove the effects of quartz compression Quartz compression can account for 3 to 4 Sw units, as modern MICP machines can reach up to 60,000 psi. Straight line Tails Quartz compression

Start of Chemical Injection Coreflood recovery nearly 95% of STOIIP Additional oil from ASP EOR Pilot Stage MANGALA COREFLOOD RESULT (Post waterflood result displayed) PHASE BEHAVIOR EVALUATION % Sodium Carbonate 0.0 0.5 0.75 1.0 1.25 1.5 1.75 2.0 2.25 2.5 2.75 3.0 3.5 4.0 Type-I Type-II Type-III 0.2% Surfactant; 0.6% NaCl; 30% Oil

  34. Conclusions • Archie “n” in Oil-Wet Reservoir • Contrary to “conventional wisdom”, moderately oil-wet reservoirs can exhibit Archie “n” values NOT significantly above 2.0. • Very Low Water Saturations • As evidenced here, very low water saturations (avg. 5%) exist in Mangala, Aishwariya and Bhagyam Fields • Model “Case Study” of the VALUE Of PETROPHYSICS • This is a case-study illustrating the economic worth of “Doing it Right” in initial petrophysics studies of high-value fields. • VALUE Of Taking Cores & Technology Culture

Combined Amott/USBM Wettability Experiment Capillary Pressure” (Pc) is defined as the pressure of the non-wetting phase minus the pressure of the wetting phase, and thus is always a positive number. In petroleum engineering typically define Pc as the pressure in the oil phase minus the pressure in the water phase (Pc = Po – Pw); so Pc would be positive for a water-wet system and negative for an oil-wet system. The experiment starts with a core at initial oil saturation and looks at how much water will spontaneously imbibe (“spontaneous production”), as shown on step 2 of Figure 2. This is followed by a measurement of how much water enters the core under an applied pressure gradient as the core is flooded to the residual oil saturation (Sorw). This is the “forced production” shown in step 3 of Figure 2. Note that the production measured is actually oil, since for each unit of water that enters the core an equivalent amount of oil is produced into a collection device. Obviously if the core was strongly water-wet, most of the oil production would happen spontaneously, with little need to apply an external pressure. The water-wetting index (WWI) is defined as the proportion of the total oil production that is produced spontaneously, and would be 1.0 for a strongly water-wet system and 0.0 for an oil-wet system. WWI= proportion of the total oil production produced spontaneously OWI = proportion of the total brine production produced spontaneously
