Water injection has shown to be one of the most successful, efficient, and cost-effective reservoir management strategies. By re-injecting treated and filtered water into reservoirs, this approach can help maintain reservoir pressure, increase hydrocarbon output, and reduce the environmental effect. The goal of this project is to create a water injection model utilizing Eclipse reservoir simulation software to better understand water injection methods for reservoir pressure maintenance. A basic reservoir model is utilized in this investigation. For simulation designs, the reservoir length, breadth, and thickness may be changed to different levels. The water-oil contact was discovered at 7000 feet, and the reservoir pressure was recorded at 3000 pounds per square inch at a depth of 6900 feet. The aquifer chosen was of the Fetkovich type and was linked to the reservoir in the j+ direction. The porosity was estimated to be varied, ranging from 9% to 16%. The residual oil saturation was set to 25% and the irreducible water saturation was set at 20%. The vertical permeability was set at 50 md as a constant. Pressure Volume Temperature (PVT) data was used to estimate the gas and water characteristics.
