A water injection trial in one of the giant fields of Southern Iraq has been designed in order to test water injection and sweep efficiency in middle Cretaceous carbonates. Three water injection trial areas have been identified. The areas exhibit different reservoir architectures which will help to understand the nature and mechanisms of water movement. Water injection is underway and the trial is ongoing with preliminary results available.
