The paper describes how proactive surveillance adds value in fields that follow a clear well and reservoir management<br>(WRM) strategy. It also shows that WRM plays an important role at all stages of field’s life, hence the importance of having<br>sustainable WRM processes. The sustainability of these processes relays on having surveillance plans that are applicable for<br>each scenario and stage of the field’s life. This proactive approach to surveillance gives frequent insight to the reservoir<br>condition and proves to be valuable in mitigating unpleasant surprises. The paper also shows that while the principles of<br>WRM e.g. surveillance and reviews remain intact; its resulting activities evolve with time. The evolution of these activities<br>depends on the available technology, outcome of the reviews, field maturity, drive mechanism and oil prices.
