On influence of stylolites on reservoir properties of famennian carbonate rocks using Fourier spectra

Key words: stylolite, limestone, Famennian stage, reservoir properties, Fourier spectra.

In present paper some aspects of stylolites morphology, classifications and genesis have been regarded on core samples of Famennian carbonate rocks from well on southern slope of South-Tatarian Dome. It was observed the presence of stylolites with sizes of 10-2m, of suture, prisma and peak shapes. Fourier spectra can be used to measure and to classify stylolites as well as to estimate their influence on reservoir properties of carbonate rocks.

Status and problems of the of pre-Jurassic basement petrophysical study by the example of Shaim region in Western Siberia

Key words: pre-Jurassic complex, study of the core, the description of thin sections, shales, reservoir, reservoir properties.

The descriptions of core samples and Paleozoic rocks thin sections of the four wells , the results of quantitative determinations of permeability indexes, porosity, water saturation, density and electrical resistivity , as well as relations between pairs of the most important characteristics are analyzed, factors that impede the use of well survey data for selection and evaluation of the reservoirs are identified. It is pointed to the lack of the experimental data on a number of characteristics of rocks that are important from the point of view of the evaluation of the effectiveness of the well survey methods and the development of the interpretation of their results applied to the study of the pre-Jurassic part of section. Weak relation between permeability and porosity index eliminates the possibility of reservoirs selection by the boundary value of the porosity index. It is necessary to create conditions for the manifestation of reservoirs direct signs (filter cake, radial resistance gradient) with verification by testing at least in the first wells.

Measuring of residual hydrocarbon saturation by direct-flow capillary imbibition method

Key words: residual hydrocarbon saturation, direct-flow capillary imbibition, dynamic porosity.

The authors describe conception of structure-trapped volumes in oil-and-gas saturated rock pore space, forming due to big ratio (>>1) of pore and capillaries sections. An experimental method of structure-trapped oil-and-gas saturation index and dynamic porosity index measuring is brought in the article. Proposed method is found on direct-flow capillary imbibition phenomenon using proprietary laboratory facility. Filling field geological model with measured parameters (residual structure-trapped hydrocarbon saturation, dynamic porosity, and direct-flow capillary imbibition speed) will give a possibility to allocate the most attractive zones with big residual structure-trapped reserves, correct hydrodynamic model and make a choice of production technologies in allocated zones on a case-by-case basis.

Light-weight backfill mortars with antifreeze additives for the permafrost conditions

Key words: light-weight backfill mortar, hollow glass microspheres, Arctic grouting cements, antifreeze additives, cementing of permafrost well zones.

The paper considers the problem of cementing of oil and gas wells under difficult geological conditions when the well profile comes through the permafrost zones and the seams with low bearing capacity. It was shown that the optimal solution for cementing of such wells is the use of light-weight backfill mortars with antifreeze additives. Hollow glass microspheres are suggested to be used as a light-weight aggregate. It is shown that a higher consumption of antifreeze additives significantly reduces the strength of backfill stone and affects much the setting time and thickening time. The method of testing of backfill cements for the permafrost conditions, which takes into account the actual temperatures in the well and assumes lowering of the temperature during the curing time of the backfill stone was suggested. The aforesaid methodology was used to test the developed backfill mortars with hollow glass microspheres and antifreeze additives. It was found that for all tested antifreeze additives, the optimal results were obtained for the potash additive with a retarder for backfill mortars.

Using hydrodinamical study results for detailed geological and hydrodynamic simulation

Key words: hydrodynamic modeling, well testing.

One of the most urgent tasks in the verifying reservoir properties is to determine the structure of arrays of carbonate fractured or cavernous fractured zones. Such reservoir carry both positive and negative features: high flow rates with rapid flooding (if production well reveals the fractured zone) and rather low flow rate values with a low coefficient of reduction (if the well reveals the "matrix" part). However, to control the development of such reservoirs requires detailed geological and hydrodynamic model, which takes into account not only the presence of inhomogeneities, but also changes in their properties for real values of depression and repression.

Study of effective brownfield development by the means of oil resaturation with evolved gas in situ

Key words: dissolved gas, reservoir pressure, saturation pressure, oil recovery factor, sherkalinskaya suite.

Development of oil bearing formations characterized by the values of dissolved gas saturation pressure closest to initial reservoir pressure usually subject to the negative effects of evolving the gas phase and its affect on oil relative permeability in the presence of water and free gas. The question about the reversibility of such process is crucial for the development planning of oil bearing formations in which period of exploitation pressure declined bellow the bubble point. Generalizing the different scientists’ studies the present article justifies the possibility of restoration the productivity potential of such objects by the means of elimination of gas plugs by its resaturation in liquid hydrocarbon phase during the reservoir pressure build-up.

Water-shut-off polymeric composition for low-permeable reservoirs

Key words: polymeric composition, water-shut-off, surfactant, low-permeable reservoir.

The article presents the results of research of developing a polymeric composition for intrastratal water-shut-off in low-permeable reservoirs.Polymeric compositions (aqueous alkaline solutions of hydrolyzed akril-contain polymer) were selected as objects of the study with the addition of the nonionic surfactant with hydrophobic properties (this surfactant is the reaction product of unsaturated fatty acids with amines and their derivatives).As a result of complex research, new hydrophobized polymeric composition was designed, brought to the industry and recommended for use in intrastratal water-shut-off in low permeable reservoirs. Compared with a conventional aqueous acrylic polymer, developed polymer composition reduces pressure injection into the reservoir and increases the residual resistance factor.

Substantiation of effectiveness of vibroseismic stimulation on deposit

Key words: enhanced oil recovery, vibroseis stimulation on formation, shock supplies of seismic waves.

The article presents a theoretical substantiation of positive effect of vibroseis impact on filtration processes and results of experimental researches on oil displacement in the elastic wavefield. The author has analyzed the physical mechanisms of vibroseis stimulation on the reservoir. Physical dependences for various types of wettability have been obtained. These conditions are in good agreement with experimental results. The author has developed a model of discrete movement clamped “dropping” oil during vibroseis impact on deposit, revealing some aspects oscillatory processes effect on the EOR. It is noted that apart from the effect on capillary-adhesion phenomena elastic waves also affect the rheological properties of oil, on the stress-strain state of the reservoir and on many other physical phenomena, directly and indirectly affecting the oil recovery processes. The results of research are recommended to use in selecting the optimal method of reservoir stimulation, in order to increase oil recovery.

Water shutoff jobs in porous-fractured carbonate reservoirs using water-swellable elastomers

Key words: water-swellable polymer, elastomer, plugging ability, carbonate reservoir.

Due to significant depletion of reserves in Devonian terrigenous formations, carbonate reservoirs are often considered as targets for resuming production in spite of their complex geometry and high water cut. In this regard customized synthesis of water-shutoff chemicals is required to effectively shut off unwanted water production. One of the most promising water shutoff techniques analyzed in this paper is application of a modified elastomer which swells in water to a limited degree and maintains its plugging ability for a long period of time.

Rational use of oil gas

A.N. Drozdov (Gubkin Russian State University of Oil and Gas, RF, Moscow)
Utilization of associated petroleum gas with using of existing field infrastructure

Key words: utilization of associated gas, field infrastructure, pump, jet apparatus, pump-ejecting system.

There are many reasons of not sufficiently associated gas utilization – the absence of gas pipelines, remoteness and marginal fields, the lack of gas consumers in the areas of production, etc. However, analysis of field data shows that in many cases gas passing can be disposed through its joint transportation with the liquid through pipelines to the plant complex of oil and gas preparation with subsequent delivery to consumers. This requires minimal additional capital investment. Operating costs in some cases can even be reduced with the maximum use of existing field infrastructure and adding jet apparatus (ejectors) to the equipment of booster pump stations.

Technology of installation of a gravel filter in directional and horizontal wells

Key words: horizontal well, inclined directed well, unstable collector of oil and gas, gravel filter.

Extraction of hydrocarbons from productive stratums consisting of fragile low cement rocks accompanied by the release of reservoir rock particles in the well, which leads to the formation of sand plugs on borehole bottom or on tubing string. Installation of gravel filter in the well is one of the solutions of this problem. With the view to optimize constructions of gravel filter elements, simulation of fluid gravel mixture during the installation of gravel filter in horizontal well was realized. The practical need of hydrodynamics study for circular channels leads to numerical calculation of set of basic models with varying degrees of simplification. This work presents basic regulations and design data.

Technical approach to the application of chemicals for oil treatment and oilfield waste water purification in fields at the late development stages

Key words: oilfield, oil-water mixture, oil dehydration, purification of waste water, chemicals – demulsifiers and flocculants, compositional analysis of impurities in water.

Oil dehydration and purification of waste water in fields at the late development stage are primarily carried out in Free Water Knock Out units with oil-water mixture treatment with demulsifier and natural gravitational settling applied. The required treatment quality of waste water, determined by the design documentation for field production, is not always guaranteed. The performed studies have verified the required quality of oil dehydration and waste water purification can be achieved by sequential treatment of oil-water mixture with such chemicals as demulsifiers and flocculants. The flocculants efficiency depends on the compositional analysis of impurities in the aqueous phase of oil-water mixtures transporting to Free Water Knock Out units.

Micronization of catalytic systems in receiving the bituminous insulating materials for protection of the main pipelines

Key words: bitumen, structure, composite protective material, physic-mechanical properties, electrochemistry, coverings, oil and gas equipment.

Pipelines are the most effective and safe way of oil, gas and oil products transportation on considerable distances. The durability and fail-safety of operation of pipelines directly depends on efficiency of their anticorrosive protection. Insulating covers have to carry out the functions in a wide interval of temperatures of construction and operation of pipelines, providing their protection against corrosion for the greatest possible term of their operation. Researches of refractory bitumens show that participation of asphaltens molecules as a filler of the bituminous insulating materials (BIM) has catalytic effect on process of bituminous coverings drying. The obtained data testify that the carried-out accelerated tests of electrochemical process at micronized BIM cathodic reaction of ionization of metal over the anode prevails. It is necessary to conclude about need of modification of film-forming material inhibitors of the anti-oxidizing character which application will allow to avoid further oxidizing activity. As such inhibitors various polymeric systems can act.

Key words: monitoring, atmospheric air pollution sources, management, geoinformation systems (GIS).

Production objects of the oil and gas complex are sources of complex and concentrated impact on the environment and on the atmosphere, in particular. There is a necessity for attraction of powerful software to assess the real level of air pollution in the impact area of dangerous production objects of oil and gas complex in the normal mode of operation and in emergency situations. This will allow the use of alternative cartographic methods of interpretation of the obtained information and the use of modeling of the ground level concentrations fields, based on the data about values of emissions from different sources. The proposed air monitoring system on production objects of oil and gas complex will allow to assess the state of atmospheric air with high probability and to quickly identify the pollution sources, that contribute most to, in the real time, and to reduce the environmental and technogenic danger of the enterprise.
