Tatneft Company devotes considerable attention to the search and implementation of new technology solutions to enable extension of field economic life by managing fluid production fr om heterogeneous oil-producing reservoirs (structurally complex production zones) through partial or complete shut-off of water production intervals or seal-off of water conductive fractures. For this purpose, water shut-off treatments can be performed to reduce excess production of produced water and hence, decrease (stabilize) wellstream water cut. Excess water production can occur due to a number of different reasons; including different mobility of oil and displacing agent (particularly, water injected to maintain reservoir pressure), geological heterogeneity, presence of high-permeability intervals, which are the primary frontal advance channels. High water cut can also result fr om bottom water coning and inter-reservoir fluid communication between the producing reservoir and adjacent waterflooded or water-saturated intervals due to lack of continuous impermeable barrier in presence of extensive vertical fracture networks or faults. A variety of physical and chemical methods for formation treatment, which has been widely practiced in the oil industry, enable mitigation of adverse effects of these factors on production performance, reduction (stabilization) of wellstream water cut and enhancement of oil production. These improvements can be achieved through treatments of both production and injection wells. This approach has been successfully used in Tatneft Company for development of terrigenous reservoirs. However in carbonate reservoirs, arrangement of efficient reservoir pressure maintenance system is challenging (due to absence of connectivity between injection and production wells and “instantaneous” breakthrough of injected water through well-developed fracture system). In such reservoirs, water shut-off in production wells is often the only way of water cut control. References 1.
