Abstract

Cumulative production of oil from the Thistle Field had reached almost 400MMBBL by the end of 2000. Thistle is a success story and has been producing for over 20 years. It is now in its late stage of field life and is close to achieving a 50% recovery factor of its estimated 824 MMBBL STOIIP. The millennium challenge is to continue economic production and further increase reserves recovery. It has survived the full range of oil price fluctuations with all the accompanying cost cutting initiatives in late life becoming the benchmark for end of field life performance.
