The Azeri, Chirag, and Gunashli (ACG) fields, located offshore Baku in the Caspian Sea, are being developed under a 30 yr Production Sharing Agreement. Contiguous with the ACG accumulation, the shallow-water Gunashli (SWG) field has produced in excess of 800 MMSTB since 1980 from more than 220 wells.
SWG provides an opportunity to study the static and dynamic behavior of reservoirs important to the development of ACG.
BP, operator of ACG, contracted with the Reservoir Modeling Centre of the State Oil Company of Azerbaijan to perform a study of the Balakhany IX and Balakhany X reservoirs in the SWG...

Lacustrine Sandstone Reservoirs and Hydrocarbon Systems
Many publications on lacustrine systems concentrate on reconstructing paleo-environments, deciphering paleoclimate or estimating hydrocarbon source potential. This is the first memoir to give attention to describing the occurrence, distribution and character of sandstones in various lake settings. the volume is the outcome of a Hedberg Conference held in Baku, Azerbaijan in 2004. The memoir is divided into four sections beginning with a global overview, and followed by two sections covering lacustrine systems in compressional and extensional regimes. The volume concludes with a series of papers on modern lake regimes.
