The Emlichheim Oilfield is part of the cross-border anticline structure Schoonebeek-Emlichheim between<br>Germany and The Netherlands. The structure was discovered oil bearing in 1943 and brought on-stream<br>one year later on the German side. Due to its nature - bearing an medium-heavy crude - topics like<br>artificial lifting or pressure support by water injection were applied at a very early stage in field lift.<br>Primary and secondary recovery methods only had a scope to recover ~10-12% of STOIIP and field<br>production would go into a steep decline once water breakthrough would occur massively.
