Exploration and production drilling

Exploration and production drilling

on technology, mining and geological features of the wiring holes unsealed section of the West Siberian Plain is divided into two parts:

- terrigenous sedimentary rocks cover plate (0 - 3000 m or more)

- dislocated formation of the folded basement provided terrigenous-carbonate, carbonate, volcanic, igneous rocks

The reasons that lead to complicationsat the opening of cavernous-fractured basement bodies

- presence of absorbing zones in carbonate rocks of Paleozoic;

- non-conformity of design decisions mining and geological conditions

Technology of opening of the Paleozoic deposits field

The method of drilling - a turbo-rotor.

Coring - rotary core turbodolotami KTD-4, KTD-4M, KTD/4C with diamond crowns MKT-188/48, MCR-187/40 burgolovkami 2VM and SCC-190, rotor bits 1VK-190 PT-190 2VK SCC;

The construction of wells bush

-directione 324 mm lowered into the well to a depth of 60 m to prevent erosion and collapse of rock around the mouth of the drilling jig under the direction of cemented;
-conductor 245 mm overlap to a depth of 810 m the upper part of the geological section, where there are unstable rocks of the Paleogene - Upper age that are prone to obvaloobrazovaniyu and absorption of drilling fluid. Conductor layers overlap, saturated with fresh water. The conductor is cemented to the mouth (tsem. solution density of 1.86 g /cm3 in the range of 810-660 m and cement. Solution density of 1.42 g/cm3 in the range 0-660 m)

-Operation Column178 mm lowered into the well to a depth of 3,000 m (up to the roof of Paleozoic sediments) is used for growing open-hole cover and terrigenous placement of underground equipment for the extraction of reservoir fluid. The column is cemented to a depth of 660 m (tsem. solution density 1.86 g/cm3 in the range of 3000-2800 m and cement. Solution density of 1.42 g/in the range 2800-660 cm 3 m);

-'shank' 127 mm down in the interval 2900-3250 m and cemented the entire length of cement slurry with a specific gravity of 1.86 g/cm3

trouble-free opening of the Paleozoic carbonate formations for the purpose of geological exploration and exploitation that they contain hydrocarbon deposits is only possible if the overlap casing terrigenous sedimentary rocks cover.

Coring and test objects

Kern boxes

in the selection of the core is mainly used rotary drilling method

open-hole tests were conducted using plastoispytatelya CAI-2M-146

Testing was carried out as well in the drilling process using sets of equipment to be tested in open hole - CAI-146, and in the production string at the end of drilling and casing the borehole, while we measured depth gauges to record the hydrodynamic characteristics of the test interval .

Excitation of wells by replacing the mud on the process water with a subsequent call flow of formation fluids reduced the water level in the well or compressor swabbing.

For the test objects used in open hole

1) vehicles, lowered into the well on drill pipes (CAI-146);

2) vehicles, lowered into the well on wireline (OPT-7-10-AIPD GDK);

Tests are accompanied by well testing and sampling.

Hydrodynamic studies of wells (well testing) - a collection of different activities aimed at measuring the parameters: pressure, temperature, liquid level, volume of fluid flow, etc.

Performance criteria of the secondary opening of productive layers of cased-hole

  • The total surface opening of the casing must be maximum
    (column should retain the ability to resist the horizontal component of ground pressure)
  • productive part of the reservoir must be opened to a depth of
    provides a face to overcome the polluted area of ​​the reservoir. (Outside the range of opening should be provided with safety casing and cement sheath)
  • Within the reservoir to be created given the number
    perforating channels that provide a perfect hydrodynamic relationship
    reservoir and wells with a minimum hydraulic resistance to flow

Methods of intensification

Additional oil flow in wells is achieved by using methods of increasing the permeability of the layer zones.

Physical Methods designed to remove from the well bottom zone of residual water and solid fine particles, which increases the permeability of oil.

Thermal methods effects are used to remove from the walls of the pore canals of wax and resins, as well as intensification of chemical processing methods bottom-hole zones.

Chemical Methods effect to give good results in impermeable carbonate reservoirs.

The most commonly used chemical methods
RMS (hydrochloric acid treatment) and
T-bills (clay-acid treatment), using solutions of surfactants (surface active agents)
