Characterisation of highly fractured basement, Say’un Masila Basin, Yemen

This case study of ten oil wells drilled into highly fractured and heterogeneous crystalline basement rocks of the Bayoot Field, Say’un Masila Basin, Yemen, brings together the findings from a wealth of oil field data and shows that a multidisciplinary approach is required for full characterisation. An improved method for targeting hydrocarbons has been established for the study area. This has been achieved by drilling highly deviated wellbores into the upper basement reaches and optimally orienting them to intersect a maximum number of stress-sensitive fractures together with major seismic-scale fault damage zones that are not in direct connection to the local Bayoot Fault.
