The paper presents the results of ROI (return on investment) analysis for the development of terrigenous Devonian reservoirs of the Romashkinskoye oil field. Possible ways of payback are discussed involving more efficient operation of wells drilled into Devonian deposits with varying clay content in a terrigenous reservoir. Calculations show that many injection wells consume electricity inefficiently, since the producing well response is not considered when operating the injectors. Calculations show that cost of oil production from the terrigenous Devonian reservoirs of the Romashkinskoye field mostly depends on porosity and permeability properties of these reservoirs. This is due to the fact that "target" wells (clay content > 4%) are less attractive in terms of well interventions than "non-target" wells (clay content < 4%).

Key words:

semi-variable costs, special-purpose fund, general fund, waterflood types, production cost, porosity and permeability
