Vi har nå flere teknologier som gjør at vi kan injisere fluid/epoxy etc. i en sone og forsøke stenge denne sonen lokalt. Flere av Aker BP sine asssets jobber med en slik metode for vannavstengning. For brønner uten aksess til nedre komplettering er «bull heading» eneste alternativ for å prøve selektiv vannavstengning.

Da trengs et DPR fluid (disproportionate permeability reduction) som greier å redusere vann permeabiliteten uten å skade olje permeabiliteten for mye. Aker BP har jobbet med en slik metode både med en felt pilot på Alvheim og på laboratoriet over flere år sammen med NORCE. Presentasjonen vil gi en generell status for metoden samt innblikk i Alvheim studien (SPE-195485-PA).
