The thin and laterally extensive Al Shaheen reservoirs are developed with extended reach horizontal wells and large-scale<br>water injection, which over the last decade has proved to be a proficient and environmentally favorable recovery scheme.<br>This paper describes how injection water short circuiting between two horizontal wells in excess of 20,000 ft was eliminated<br>with a conformance treatment without the necessity of a costly and operationally risky well intervention. Traditionally,<br>reservoir management in terms of injection or production profile modification has been achieved with rig-based work-over<br>operations applying mechanical solutions such as cement or isolation straddles. Work-over operations utilizing drilling rigs<br>are, however, expensive, pose inherent operational risks and delay the implementation of the ongoing development plans.
