Summary:
The Tayarat Formation (Maastrichtian in age) was deposited in shallow-water carbonate platform complex across the interior of the Arabian Shield (Alsharhan and Nairn 1990, Dunnington 1958, Owen and Nasr 1958). Production from the Tayarat and Radhuma Formation heavy-oil reservoirs has presented many challenges in south Kuwait. Factors affecting these challenges are: 1) reservoir lithological heterogeneity, 2) poor reservoir quality, and 3) heavy-oil fluid properties heterogeneity. However, the main interest of this study is to understand the effect of mixing TSR-fluids on the physical and chemical fluid properties of the Radhuma and Tayarat Formation reservoirs in the Burgan Field
