The need to appraise and develop smaller and technically challenging fields, and to maximize recovery from mature fields, requires a high level of geoscientific input and application of innovative methods. Optimal positioning and geosteering of wells, and drilling and completion of 'intelligent' wells, are only successful if the relevant reservoir data are available and implemented in reservoir models. Modern seismic data reveal ever more information about reservoir heterogeneity and fluid distribution, often allowing definition ofintrareservoir features. In mature fields, production data frequently identify reservoir compartmentalization and validate models of geological heterogeneity.
