Abstract Since discovery in 1973, the Dunlin Field has been the subject of a flexible and continuously adaptable development plan. The initial plan was based on limited reservoir description from only a few wells and relatively widespread seismic data. Recognizing the limitations of the data, the development plan called for updating and improving the reservoir description as part of the initial steps at field development. The data from this early development needed rigorous evaluation to produce as near optimum a final plan as possible. One of the tools that has been very useful both in the data evaluation phase and the optimization phase of reservoir management is reservoir simulation. This work includes major results of some of Esso Expro UK simulation studies of the Dunlin reservoir. The Esso Reservoir simulation program has been used successfully to match the pressure and watercut performance at Dunlin.
