Method of oil-bearing bed development

FIELD: oil and gas industry.

SUBSTANCE: method of oil-bearing bed development comprises drilling and alternation every-other-row by placing rows of horizontaldevelopment wells and rows of horizontal injection wells at the first distance from each other. Horizontal development well bores and horizontal injection well bores are positioned in the direction of minimum horizontal stress in the bed so as to ensure the propagation of hydraulic fractures perpendicular to the horizontal well bores direction. At least two hydraulic fractures are mounted at the casing columns of injection and development wells, located at the second distance from each other and providing communication between the wells and the bed. A multistage hydraulic fracture is carried out through hydrofracing ports in the development and injection wells so that hydraulic fracture cracks are formed along each well perpendicular to the bore direction. The hydraulic fracture cracks of injection wells are offset from the hydraulic fracture cracks of the development wells at the third distance. The wells are placed in operation by pumping fluid into the injection wells with control of flow and/or volume of pumped fluid so that the pumping pressure is below the hydraulic fracturing pressure.

EFFECT: ensuring ultimate hydrocarbon recovery from the deposit, maximized productivity ratio.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to the oil industry and may be used in the operation of a horizontal well. According to the method well operation is performed. A pipe string is run down to the horizontal well. An insulating material is injected through the pipe string to a water-inflow interval of the productive formation. Oil is extracted until the horizontal well is flooded. Under the main borehole along the boundary of the oil-water contact an additional borehole is drilled from the horizontal well per 50 m longer than the old hole. The coil tubing is run down to the well complete from below with a hydraulic whipstock and a screen, which openings are covered hermetically by a hollow bushing. The process fluid is injected to the coil tubing thus creating an excess pressure. Simultaneously the coil tubing is moved down until it gets to the additional borehole. The coil tubing is run down up to the bottomhole of the additional hole. At the wellhead a top cementing plug is set into the coil tubing. An excess pressure is created in the coil tubing above the top cementing plug and the hollow bushing is moved thus opening the screen openings. Microcement grout is injected through the coil tubing and flushed to the additional hole and the bottomhole zone. Simultaneously the coil tubing is pulled out for the purpose of additional hole filling with the microcement grout. Flushing of the microcement grout is stopped when pressure increases in the coil tubing up to a permissible value. The coil tubing is pulled out from the well and the process is withheld for cement setting and hardening. The additional hole is cut off from the old hole by setting a bridge plug in a kickoff interval at the inlet to the offshoot. A pump is run down at the process pipe string to the old hole of the horizontal well and operation of the horizontal well is started. At water encroachment into the produced product the process pipe string with the pump is pulled out from the well, a geophysical study is performed and a water-producing interval is indentified in the horizontal well. The water-producing interval in the old hole of the horizontal well is isolated.

EFFECT: increased efficiency of the method due to the complete exhaustion of oil reserves from the productive formation notwithstanding the drawdown value.

SUBSTANCE: invention is referred to oil and gas industry, and namely to methods of automatic flow control at well operation of oil and gas deposit. According to the method injectors and producers equipped with pump units and electric motors are used. A passive sonar multiphase flow meter is mounted at the mouth of each well. Pressure, temperature and flow rate is defined continuously in real time for each phase, including water. The data are collected and transferred to automatic flow process control system continuously in real time. The data are averaged for a certain period of time. Average flow rate is processed and defined by phases for the selected period of time. The results are compared with preset parameters and based on flow rate data for each phase dependency of flow rate for each well is defined on pumped volume of brine water. Version of pump units operation with electric motors for producers is selected and maintained so that oil flow rate is maximum and pumped volume of brine water and power consumption is minimum. At that when design flow rate values are exceeded one of the following actions is performed: efficiency of pump unit is reduced due to reduced rate speed of the electric motor; efficiency of pump unit is increased due to increased rate speed of the electric motor; pump unit is stopped temporarily to accumulate oil in the bottom hole. Product of the producers is separated into phases and transported depending on the phase to oil and gas collection system or reservoir pressure maintenance system.

EFFECT: increased efficiency of the method due to increased oil flow rate, reduced volume of brine water pumped and reduced power consumption.

SUBSTANCE: according to the method fluid pumping from the well is alternated with fluid accumulation in the well at switched off pump set and average delivery in time is controlled for the purpose of matching with the well flow rate by changing speed rate of the pump shaft. Pump capacity in pumping process is controlled by a submersible flow rate meter placed at the pump output. Pumping out will be performed till the pump reaches the preset minimum pressure at suction and accumulation will be performed till the pump reaches the preset maximum pressure. Pressure value is controlled by means of a submersible pressure sensor. Frequency of the pump shaft rotation during pumping period is changed on the basis of readings of the submersible flow rate meter so that maximum value of efficiency factor is reached for the pump during pumping period. Time of accumulation is limited by regulations on motionless fluid in surface equipment in winter time by permitted decrease of oil temperature in the submersible electric motor and permitted frequency of stops and starts of the latter. Maximum pressure value for the cemented stratum is selected on condition of maximum oil production and for the stratum destructed intensely in extraction process on conditions of minimum discharge of mechanic impurities.

EFFECT: increased production and maintained reliability for submersible equipment due to its operation in the mode of maximum efficiency factor.

SUBSTANCE: method includes cyclic forced gas pumping from the annulus and pressure decreasing in it. Periodically the well flow header is partially closed. Pressure upstream the shutdown element of the header is increased to ensure the produced fluid supply to the expansion chamber of the tank with resilient element and to accumulate mechanical energy in the expansion chamber. Then full opening of the header shutdown element is performed. Pressure upstream the shutdown element is decreased, and fluid is displaced from the expansion chamber to the header due to the accumulated mechanical energy. Each cyclic volume increasing of part of the tank above the expansion chamber ensures annulus gas suction in it, and this volume decreasing ensures gas displacement to the header.

EFFECT: possibility of gas pumping from the annulus in tubing string of the well for different methods of mechanised oil production.
