About deterioration of productive layers reservoir characteristics

Key words:productive layer reservoir characteristics, rheological properties of the emulsion of drilling mud filtrate – oil, surfactant.

The causes of deterioration of productive layers reservoir characteristics while drilling in are considered. Special attention is paid to the study of the rheological properties of the emulsion of drilling mud filtrate - oil type. On the example of oil from Bugruvativskoye and Mylkivskoye fields, it is shown that, depending on the composition and concentration of the filtrate emulsions non-Newtonian properties may be shown and rheological parameters are high for certain values of concentrations. Optimal additions of surfactants to the drilling mud aimed at improvement of surface characteristics on the interphase boundary filtrate-oil significantly decrease viscosity properties of emulsions. The obtained results allow us to define the mechanism of decreasing of reservoir characteristics of productive layers as a result of drilling mud filtrate penetration and lay down new requirements to technologies, composition and properties of drilling muds for productive layers drilling in.

New Russian oil-recovery method for exploiting the Bazhenov Formations deposits (part 2)

Key words: Bazhenov Formation, thermal-gas treatment, oxygen-containing mixture injection, kerogen, miscible drive, enhanced oil recovery.

In this paper we present new Russian oil-recovery method for exploiting the Bazhenov Formation’s deposits, which is based on the integration of the thermal and gas reservoir treatment. This method is carried out by the injection of the oxygen-containing mixture and its spontaneous exothermic oxidation reactions in situ. Based on the aggregation of long-term research it was established that such complex treatment, firstly, allows to increase dramatically oil recovery from the drained carbonate hydrophobic interlayers due to the effective displacing agents generation, and secondly, provides bringing into development the non-drained argillaceous-kerogenic interlayers due to their controlled heating from the drained interlayers, and at last thirdly, provides additional hydrocarbon recovery from the kerogen due to its cracking and pyrolysis. The results of the first phase of field tests in the pilot of the Sredne-Nazymskoye field (Bazhenov Formation) not only proved in principle the possibility of the new technologys field implementation, but also confirmed main science-based positive effects of the thermal-gas treatment of the Bazhenov Formations deposits. It is established that this new technology is able to provide the value of oil recovery an order of magnitude greater than the depletion drive.

Destruction zone are combined into a single multi-layer field hydrodynamic system, promote vertical migration of fluids from the exit to the surface.Creation or implementation of major depression flooding leads to the development of primary and flooding fracture capacity and isolation of stocks in the pore reservoirs. The high degree of localization of areas of increased productivity and the initial input to the development of the reservoir containing basic supplies promotes cross-flows and accelerated the development of fracture capacity of the field. Thus, insufficient consideration of reservoir and hydrodynamic models of reservoirs reduces the efficiency of searching and mining.

Application prospects of wave technology of thermal-gas-chemical formation treatment for oil recovery enhancement

Key words: innovative technology, wave methods, numerical reservoir simulation.

The stimulation technology of hydrocarbon raw production by high pressure impulses is really urgent nowadays. This is due to the fact that a large amount of deposits which are projected for field development are complex systems - fractured reservoirs complicated by presence of clay inclusions. Besides, the formations are often characterized by weak flowability. For example, the vast layers of the Bagenov deposit are very perspective, but too difficult for development because of low permeability of collector and high content of kerogen and shale deposits. The explosion impact technique is considered nowadays as the most perspective direction in field development of hard extractable hydrocarbon raw. The purpose of the present work is the numerical analysis of inleak stimulation by high pressure waves to fractured well. The computer estimation of safety using this shock action method is spent for data of real well that have been simulated by hydraulic fracturing techniques. The stimulation method by high pressure wave can be used as an independent stimulation method for low-permeability reservoirs of heavy hydrocarbons and as of additional stimulation method for reservoirs in which have already been applied another technologies such as fracturing. The simulation results of wave processing were used for real deposits forecasting.
