The San Francisco field was discovered in 1985. It is located 20 km northwest of the city of Neiva in the Upper Madgalena basin (Colombia), and produces at a depth of 3,000 ft. It was operated by HOCOL, a subsidiary of ECOPETROL.
FOROIL has used its massive optimization process for HOCOL in two phases:
- Identify the right conversion and water injection plan.
- Identify the sand-selective injection and production pattern.
