pdf  Laboratory research of change in reservoir properties of polymictic sandstones after their development using polymer drilling mud

Samples of polymictic sandstones from different fields after impact of polymer drilling mud were studied in vitro. During core samples studying by means of FDES-645 installation the existence of micro-fractures was confirmed in core samples from low-permeability polymictic sandstones of the Dneprovsko-Donetsky structural low and the possibility of their disclosure in the course of drilling was shown for the purpose to assess a damage rate of productive layer in the static and dynamic modes. On the example of core sample of polymictic sandstone of the Vyngapurovsky field located in the Western Siberia the twofold decrease in permeability after dynamic impact of polymer drilling mud modeling conditions of well washing is shown. As a result of experiments the formation of a firm polymeric film of drilling mud at high temperatures was also identified. It is shown that this film can be effectively deleted with water solution of hydrochloric acid.
Keywords: polymictic sandstones, polymer drilling mud, permeability, micro-fractures, polymeric film, hydrochloric acid, Dneprovsko-Donetsky structural low, Western Siberia.

Oil and gas potential of the Riphean-Lower Cambrian strata in the central and eastern parts of Pred-Patom foredeep was evaluated using analytical study of sedimentation environments, composition and reservoir properties of terrigenous rocks, minerals and sealing features of pelitic rocks. Dynamo-genetic diagram was constructed as a result of cumulative curves’ correlation. Preliminary information on the sedimentation conditions of terrigenous rocks was obtained. Marine and coastal facies are identified. Mineralogical study of pelitic rocks was conducted. Capacitance-filtration properties of terrigenous and pelitic rocks were evaluated.

pdf  Enhanсing recovery efficiency of hard-extracted oil reserves in complex reservoirs using gel-forming composition on sodium silicate base

Peculiarities of producing oil wells drowning in fractured reservoirs are considered. New effective gel-forming composition on sodium silicate base intended for water-shutoff and injectivity profile leveling in fractured reservoir conditions of Yaregskoe and Usinskoe oil fields is proposed. The results of the composition’s filtration experiments are presented. It is shown that the offered gel-forming composition could be successfully used for water shutoff in fractured complex structure reservoir conditions and also in cases of light oil reservoirs of complex structure and of different lithologic composition.
Key words: extra heavy oil, complex structure reservoirs, fracturing of rocks, gel-forming compositions, flow resistance factor, selectivity.

pdf  Power law and self-similarity principle for investigation of fractured reservoirs and hydrodynamical simulation
Some aspects of self-similarity, scaling, self-organization and fractal theory for investigation of fractured oil and gas reservoirs and hydrodynamical simulation of filtration processes are analyzed. Special attention is paid to relationships between these conceptions and power distribution law, which has a long history of implementation for describing complex systems including natural self-similar fractal structures. It is shown, that fractures are as widespread and important in terrigenous rocks as in carbonate rocks of complex type. This should be taken into account during field development.
Key words: self-similarity, scaling, self-organization, fractal theory, fractured reservoirs, oil, gas, initial oil flow rate, cumulative production.

pdf  Fields of Samara region - study of rheological properties of high-viscosity and waxy oil
The development of heavy high-viscosity oil fields is becoming urgent due to the steady decline of active reserves of light oil. The results of experiments, aimed at determination of rheological properties of high-viscosity and waxy oils from fields of Samara region are presented. It was found that all studied samples of heavy oils from Borovskoe, Buzbashskoe and Perukhnovskoe fields exhibits thixotropic properties; and the intensity of these properties depends mainly on the temperature. With increasing temperature, there is a sharp decrease in oil viscosity due to the destruction of complex spatial structure of coagulation-crystallization type in the oils from Borovskoe, Buzbashskoe and Perukhnovskoe oil fields. The results of provided research substantiate and propose the implementation of effective integrated technology of enhanced oil recovery into the operation of these fields. It is shown that the structure of coagulation and coagulation-crystallization types can form in oils, the destruction of which requires considerably more energy input. Therefore, the application together with the thermal effects of dispersants and solvents will significantly improve the development efficiency of these fields.

Key words: heavy high-viscosity oil, heavy high viscosity oil properties, enhanced oil recovery, rheotest, viscosity, Samara region fields.
