Objective & study area

Ness City North field is located in Ness County, Kansas. The study area is spread over sections 23, 24 and 25 of 18s-24w. The producing horizon is Mississippian carbonate. The area has been under production since early 1963. The objective of this study was to characterize the reservoir in the study area and generate the data necessary to simulate the field by CMG-IMEX (black-oil) reservoir simulator. The simulation study would be used to predict the performance of an infill horizontal well that the field-operator was planning to drill. Real-life production results from the horizontal well were used to cross check and fine tune the reservoir model and the assumptions made in the simulation study.

Wells included in the study area are: Ummel #1 (Mull Drilling), Ummel #2 (Mull Drilling), Ummel #3 (Mull Drilling), Ummel #4 (Mull Drilling), Ummel #1-24 (Mull Drilling), Pfannenstiel #2 (Sun Oil Co.), Pfannenstiel #1 (Associate Oil & Gas), Pfannenstiel #1 (Sun Oil Co.), A Pember #5 (Mineral Exploration), Ummel #1 (Hembree) and Pfannenstiel #1 (Sun Oil Co.).

KGS Open File Report 99-58 describes in detail the geological and petrophysical models developed for this reservoir and also the pressure and production data analysis that was carried to develop input data for this simulation study.
