A solid-propellant gas generator for oil well treatment has been developed to increase oil recovery. The gas generator features by both a new ignition method of the solid-propellant charge and material of the housing which reacts with a well liquid to prevent oil well contamination. Solutions have been proposed that allow choosing the characteristics of the solid-propellant charge for treatment of a specific oil well depending on mineral composition of oil-bearing rocks. The chemical interaction of solid composition’s burning products between various rocks is investigated.
