This project is aimed to determine the reliability of a new generation production enhancement technique, which is Low Pressure System or LPS. It is currently implemented in two fields in Malaysia. Bayan is one of the fields which is the main concern in this project. Since LPS is a newcomer in oil and gas industry, it is not widely applied yet to the depleting oil fields worldwide. The main concerns are to determine how efficient is LPS in boosting oil production and reactivating idle wells at Bayan field. Besides, there is a need to determine the economic viability of the system's implementation at the field, as well as finding the most potential candidates to maximize oil production from LPS. Thus, this project comes with three solid objectives. First is to determine the performance efficiency of LPS at Bayan field. Next is to determine its economic viability by conducting engineering economic analysis. The third objective is to identity new potential wells to be connected to the system. The scopes of this project revolve around calculating the percentage of increase in oil production prior to and after being connected to LPS, as well as conducting a detailed engineering economic analysis on the implementation of the system. Another scope involves building well models using WellFlo™ 2010 to identify potential well candidates for the system. A strategic methodology is used throughout this project. The four major elements include data acquisition, LPS performance analysis, engineering economic analysis and building well models. The outcome of this project has shown that the system managed to increase production from the field by 209%, and successfully reactivated idle wells. The system has also been proven as economically viable with the calculated incremental Internal Rate of Return (IRR) being higher than the Minimum Attractive Rate of Return (MARR). Lastly, two wells were identified as potential candidates to flow through the system in order to maximize production from the field.
