Key words: reef, famennian stage, fractured carbonates, upper Devonian.
Oil reserves of Volga-Ural oil province are sufficiently depleted at present time. Particularly, degree of initial oil reserves depletion of Samaraneftegaz JSC now exceeds 70%. In such conditions the process of Company resource base replenishment becomes very important. This process can be conducted as by purchasing of new license areas, so as by the search of so-called “missed” reservoirs and additional exploration program on developed fields. This article describes the discovery of oil-bearing reservoirs in carbonate reefs of Famennian stage on the territory of Samara region and also the prospective of analogous reservoirs discovery in the region. Additionally the main principles of search program are described and the main results of search for the oil fields of Samaraneftegaz JSC in the 1-st quarter of 2013 are provided.

The a priori approach to assessment of the hydrodynamic models in practice by known errors in the initial data

E-mail: SVEletskiy@rosneft.com
Key words: hydrodynamic model, numerical methods, indirect error, assessment
of model.
A lot of model parameters (e.g. reserves, formation energy characteristics, production rates etc.) are set up with an error that relates to uncertainties of our knowledge regarding oil in place, inaccuracy of reservoir properties determination methods, determination of formation saturation, techniques of production rate measurement, human element etc. Within the classical theory of errors it is possible to determine the values of indirect mistake by means of known direct error. This work reviews only those aspects that relate to increase of solution uncertainty vs. time depending on known errors in model parameters setting. Having enough of representative production history, data uncertainty may also have an impact on solution uncertainties, regardless of correctness of reservoir simulation model history matching. In this case the increase of solution uncertainties doesn’t hinge on professional skills and responsibility of a reservoir simulation expert and is determined solely by data inaccuracy. Nevertheless, the issue of applicability of these models with proper history matching still remains relevant and crucial.

Preliminary results of comprehensive study on development of hard-to-recover oil reserves in Jurassic reservoirs

E-mail: aikirillov@rosneft.ru
Key words: ield, hard-to-recover reserves, horizontal wells, coring, extended logging suite, multi stage hydraulic fracturing.

A comprehensive approach was proposed to improve the efficiency of development
of complex and large field with low permeability reservoir. The approach included testing of the development technology of multi stage hydraulic fracturing in horizontal wells and well operation with step-by-step implementation of additional study program. The project was launched in November 2012 when two first directional wells were spudded. These wells were used for studies: core was taken, extended logging suite was carried out, production logging program was completed and formation fluid samples were taken. First project stage resulted in almost complete removal of subsurface uncertainties concerning well placing which led to change of well direction. Also the height and the direction of fracture were determined with the help of tools and fracture propagation in horizontal wellbore was estimated. Such approach when a wide set of challenges at initial stage is met allows us to be sure that chosen engineering solutions are suitable.

Modelling of porosity of geological medium using nonclassical theory of deformations

E-mail: khagayev@yahoo.com

Key words: non-classical linearized approach, moduli of elasticity of the third-order, porosity, two-dimensional models, velocity of elastic waves.

The article contains some elements of the calculation of the moduli of elasticity of the third-order on the base of non-classical linearized approach of the theory of elasticity on propagation of elastic waves in stressed media. Modeling of porosity of complex constructed geological medium using the moduli of elasticity of the third-order had been conducted on one- and two-dimensional thin-models, on velocities of shear and pressure waves, density, porosity and effective pressure. Models had been prepared on one of the areas in the South Caspian Basin on geophysical researches in the well, VSP and seismic profile 2D. The results of modeling create the real preconditions of the use of elastic moduli of the third-order for prediction of porosity and other physical parameters of the geological section on GIS data and multi-wave seismisity.

The effect of water phase content and salinity on the rheological properties of water-in-crude oil emulsions

Key words: water-in-crude oil emulsion, dispersion, viscosity, thixotropy.

E-mail: kirbizhekova@gmail.com

There are many oil fields that have come in advanced stage of development. The water presence in the oil leads to formation of water–in-crude oil emulsions. These emulsions can be very stable as a result of presence of polar components such as asphaltenes and resins. In this study the influence of water cut and salinity on the disperse and rheological characteristics of water-in-crude oil emulsions is investigated experimentally. The correlation between the droplet size and emulsion viscosity is established. It is found, that an increased water cut gives rise to growth of thixotropic properties and dispersed system structuring. In addition it is shown that emulsion stability decreases with increasing water phase salinity. The obtained data can be used in the implementation and prediction processes of production, collection and transportation of emulsion mixtures based on heavy paraffinic oils rich

Main factors influencing on architectural and structural design of offshore building

E-mail: borys.livshyts@gmail.com
Key words: architectural-structural type, seismic resistance, autonomy, shelf, steel intensity.

When creating offshore development resources, it is necessary to deal with the definitionof architectural and structural building type. The main influencing factors are asfollows: the impact of waves, wind, ice loads (for the seas with ice conditions), the risk of seismic activity (for regions with seismic activity 7 - 9 points). A separate complex issue is the necessity of determining autonomy of structures. High rates of autonomy lead to an increase in the size of the top structure and its weight characteristics. The subject of the article is the impact of the main design factors on the architectural and structural type. The goal is to determine the most significant factors affecting the appearance of buildings. The research results in systematizing the main factors, influencing the complexity of creating buildings. We determined that under the same conditions of operation, factors of autonomy and seismic resistance substantially influence architectural and structural type of the MODU. The financial expertise was carried out.

Emergency situations risk management on the base of urgent response systems improvement

E-mail: NAShNEX@bk.ru
Key words: engineering psychology, emergency situations, accident, reaction, control.
The development of modern means of communication opens new possibilities in the sphere of emergency situations reacting. It demands the creation of special purpose systems aimed to solution of specific tasks, as unified product, aimed to average consumer in everyday life, doesn’t meet all requirements of ergonomics and the speed of reaction, needed in the case of emergency industrial situations. Primarily, the systems should be used on the objects, where the degree of risk is above the regulation value. For grounding of reasonability of using such systems, it demands to make a detailed analysis of total facility risks and also its independent technological units.
