Creole Field presents a unique opportunity for field development due to its extensive history. Additional data gathering methods allowed for investigation into past development and potential of future hydrocarbons. The efficiency of the data collection methods in regards to geological accuracy and economics are investigated in the Textularia W (TW3), Bigernerina humblei (State), and Amphistigina B (Gulf and Creole) Sands. This investigation required well log analysis, preparation of fault surface maps, structure maps, and cross sections of the framework sands for interpretation analysis. The volumetric analysis utilized historical and current production data. Comparing these results to old interpretations allowed for a comparative view.
Geological interpretation through well log correlations integrated into dip-corrected structure maps and comparisons of past production with current production records show the value of the geological mindset. The history of development of this field allows for comparisons of interpretations that utilized varying amounts of geologic information. The comparisons illustrate the importance of data gathering in the improvement of understanding of the field.
Analogous fields with a lack of geological data can benefit from data gathering, which can significantly alter interpretations. The understanding of the value of data collection may ultimately lead to new discoveries in previously thought end of life fields.
