The 34-X sand is a solitary sand reservoir and locally sinuous sandstone body. This reservoir is displaced by major normal fault zone known as the Widuri Fault that divided in two contrast areas of 34-X facies and production characteristic. The objective of this paper is to present how the combination drive reservoir redevelopment project was planned, extensive evaluation process has been made, and successful cases in enhancing reservoir ultimate recovery. The solution for this title is multi-disciplinary approach to create sharp analysis. The first step is numerical calculations of material balance to determine oil-in-place in a reservoir and to predict the future performance, this phase is tricky due to multi-driving mechanism reservoir behavior, therefore material balance analysis need to be supported by deep sub-surface analysis in property distribution on second step. This part simultaneous inversion, 4D timelapse seismic and sweep pattern analysis have been done to get comprehensive interpretation of reservoir characterization and reservoir connectivity monitoring. The third phase is supporting analysis by tracer injection, we implement tracer in several wells to ensure connectivity of the reservoir, and to evaluate injection performance. The last phase is technical difficulties in operation area, complex reservoir evidently cause complex operation difficulties, sand problem, formation damage, tubing leak, water out, plug-up injector well, etc. are problems we have to deal with. From reservoir pressure data distribution, surface gas-oil ratio, water production, and well behavior concludes that 34-X is combination drive reservoir (water drive-solution gas drive) and based on fault analysis we divided into two areas east and west, 34-X West area sandstone body is straight, with approximately 100-300m wide and 8m thick. The western part water cut is over 90%, this indicates the conduits for preferential water flow has established. From material balance calculation OOIP estimated 16.3 MMSTB. The eastern part of the 34-X sand appears to be isolated from western portion of the channel by a fault with a throw of 90 feet. The eastern portion of the widuri field is influenced by a partial water drive, indicated by high water cut histories. However the water drive is weak, the average pressure has declined to 520 psi, estimated OOIP 56.2 MMSTP. Before the redevelopment project recovery factor is 22%, and increase significantly to 27.4% simultaneously with oil production rate increase up to 40%. Dominantly pressure-depletion drive during hydrocarbon production in 34-X sand in west area occur since that area provide poor connection to an aquifer and for east area of Widuri Fault condition is limited aquifer. The water cut of production in 34-X sand well varies across the axis of the sandstone body, it caused by controlled by internal heteroginity.
