Abstract

The Moira Field, discovered in 1988, lies on the Maureen Shelf, 10 km SSW of the Maureen Field. The reservoir comprises submarine fan sandstones in a four-way dip closure, draped over a Middle Jurassic fault block. The good quality reservoir (porosity 17-25%, permeability 80-400 mD) flowed 5100 BOPD of 42° API oil in the discovery well. STOIIP was initially calculated as 20 MMBBL, but seismic pick and depth conversion uncertainites were revealed by later drilling. The most recent (1998) calculation yielded STOIIP of 12.4 MMBBL. Reserves of 4.2 MMBBL (34%), have been produced through a single deviated well tied-back to the Maureen platform. The field was shut-in in 1999.
