Key words: reserves, reservoir, oilfield, reservoir engineering, production, injection, recovery factor, reservoir development, production dynamics, production behavior, oil production level, production target, well count, pressure maintenance, sedimentological stratum, peripheral waterflooding

The subject of study is the oilfields located on the territory of Perm region which is one of the oldest oil production provinces in Russia. On the example of the largest Permian Oil production company LUKOIL-PERM JSC the analysis of oil production profile within 1939-2019 is performed. The purpose of work is to identify oil and gas fields and bearing complexes which are characterized by oil production increasing during the period from 2000 to 2019. As a result the main drivers of oil production growth were defined using one of the typical oilfield as the example. Authors highlighted the role of development technologies that allowed to develop poorly drained or undrained reserves. A number of factors are indicated that contributed to the formulation of integrated solutions to enhance field development through the expanded implementation of technological operations, linked with geological conditions and available technical capabilities, providing cost-effective results

Performed analysis is relied on the previous work of authors to determined of 6 time periods that characterized oil production profile behavior in perm region during the period from 1939 to 2019. The results of performed analysis is another step of authors’ in-depth investigation of the causes of oil production growth in Perm region. The further items to consider are: 1) the use of advanced well completion in the wells of Perm region oilfields: experience, tendencies and perspectives; 2) the development of green fields in Perm Region since 2000s, their contribution into the overall oil production; 3) the perspectives of the low-productive reservoirs development on the oilfields of Perm region; 4) the use of flexible reservoir management decisions in order to minimize the possible geological risks.
