The technical field to which the invention relates.

The present invention relates generally to the control (monitoring) of wells and production of hydrocarbons from such wells.

The level of technology

The purpose of the production of hydrocarbons (oil and gas) in the strata of the rocks drilled wells. Some of these wells are drilled vertically or almost vertically pass through several layers or productive zones. Also spread slanted and horizontal wells that pass through the productive zone is predominantly horizontal, i.e., predominantly along the length of the reservoir. In some cases, from the main wells are drilled branches in different layers. Often in these layers or in the oil fields are drilling multiple wells located at a certain distance from each other. To optimize hydrocarbon production first create a description or model of the reservoir, typically a source approximate representation of a real reservoir and its behavior. Based on this initial model of typically developing plan of development and type of wells in operation. As the depletion layer its status changes and information collected at this stage of production are used to update the reservoir model with the aim of optimizing the total production from the reservoir. This cycle of optimization of the commonly developed with the aim of optimizing the total production of the field and improve understanding of the actual structure of the reservoir. This process usually continues for the lifetime of the field until the end of the life of the reservoir. Often takes a very long time to include current information about the layer in the layer model, to apply them in the updated plan of development and to raise funds for drilling and completion of new wells. It is a process of successive approximations, in which at each iteration of the model can often take several months to several years.

Another optimization loop is associated with improvement or to maximise the technological performance of individual wells. During such a cycle control and compare the performance of the wells with an estimated technological indicators of the well. Measures to restore production to the estimated level. This cycle is traditionally completed by the invasion of the borehole or the implementation of control actions on the surface.

Relatively complex wells usually fixed casing pipes that line the wellbore. In the well establish certain permanent sensors for monitoring certain parameters of the well and surrounding the borehole formations. To regulate the flow of fluid from one or more of productive zones in the well establish remote is about controlled valves and fittings. In wells from a terrestrial source often inject chemicals or additives with the aim of suppressing the formation in the borehole sediments, corrosion, hydrates, asphaltenes, etc. For lifting to the surface of the fluid produced from formations in the borehole sometimes place the tool tubing (mechanized) production, such as electric submersible pump (APN) or a discharge of natural gas.

The operator usually examines data from various downhole and surface sensors and devices, and interprets these data to calculate or estimate the condition of the well. The operator transfers control systems, which control the downhole and surface devices, the commands to make the necessary changes in the production fluids from the well. Such actions may include changing work APN, closing or opening of valves and fittings, changing the injection of chemical reagents, etc. This cycle essentially involves the interpretation of data by the operator and the intervention of the operator, which can be error-prone or take on excessive time, which in certain circumstances may become incorrect actions and(or) the delay in the implementation of one or more actions. This interpretation and action also does not lead to an appropriate increase or to maximize well production rate during the selected time period, who may be the period of operation of the well.

Thus, there is a need for an improved system and method for monitoring the condition of the well and the implementation of actions that can increase or maximize well performance by regulating the production fluid from a well.

On figb shown, for example, ground equipment, devices, sensors, controllers, computer programs, models and algorithms that can be used to control and maintain, increase, optimizing or maximizing the production rate of the well 50. According to one feature of the system 10 is designed for intermittent or continuous use of the results of measurements coming from different sensors, and other data to determine the behavior of the well, including the flow rate of each productive zone, the status of the various devices of the system 10, the prediction of the behavior and condition of the well 50 and its corresponding equipment, including sand, water flow, water breakthrough, cross-flow, the position of the water front and the status of various devices, etc. According to other features of the system 10 m which may be calculated to determine the necessary actions, which can be made for increasing or maximizing well production 50 according to the selected criteria. According to other features of the system 10 may be designed to transfer to the operator and(or) other locations desired messages and warning signals regarding the status of the wells and the necessary adjustments or actions relating to the various operating modes of the bore 50, to commit one or more of the following: regulation, increasing, optimizing or maximizing well production; mitigate or eliminate the negative impact of potential or actual occurrence of a hazardous condition, such as the accumulation of certain chemicals, such as deposits, corrosion, hydrates and asphaltenes, potential or actual water breakthrough, cross-flow or wear certain equipment, etc.

On figa shows a hole 50 drilled in the thickness of the 55 species for production of reservoir fluids 56a and 56b of the two (for example) productive zones 52a (upper productive zone) and 52b (lower producing zone), respectively. It is shown that the well 50 is fixed casing 57 with perforations 54A near the upper productive zone 52a and perforation holes 54b near the lower production zone 52b. Packer 64, which may be a removable packer located above or higher in the wellbore than the perforations 54A, isolates the lower production zone 52b from the upper productive zone 52a. Near the perforation holes 54b can be installed filter 59b to prevent or deter the ingress of solid particles such as sand in the style of the well from the lower production zone 54. Similarly, near punch hole 59A of the upper productive zone can be used filter 59A to prevent or deter the penetration of solid particles into the well 50 of the upper productive zone 52a.

Wireline fluid 56b of the lower production zone 52b through the perforations 54A enters the annular space 51A of 50 wells and booster casing 53 through the control valve 67 of the flow rate. The control valve 67 of the flow rate may be a remotely controlled spool valve, or any other applicable valve or fitting, which is capable of regulating the flow of fluid from the annular space 51 in production tubing of the column 53. To regulate the flow of fluid from the lower production zone 52b on the surface 112 in the tubing string 53 can be used adjustable fitting 40. Wireline fluid 56 from the upper productive zone 52a through the perforations 54A enters the annular space 51B (section annular space above the packer 64A). Wireline fluid 56 through the inlet 42 enters the operational tubing column or line 45. Adjustable valve or fitting 44 that is associated with the line 45, regulates the flow rate of fluid through the line 45 and may be used to regulate the flow rate of flue is a, coming to the surface 112. Each valve, fitting or other such device in the borehole can be controlled electrically, hydraulically, mechanically and(or) pneumatically from the surface. Fluid from the upper production zone 52a and the lower production zone 52b flows through line 46.

In cases where the reservoir pressure is not sufficient to eject fluid 56a and(or) fluid 56b on the surface for lifting fluids from a well to the surface 112 may use equipment for mechanized (booster) production, such as electric submersible pump (APN) or gas-lift system. As the equipment for the booster extraction system 10 is shown mounted on the manifold 31 APR 30 that receives reservoir fluids 56a and 56b and which through a system of 47 pipes pumping fluids to the surface 112. Cable 134 in EPN 30 is energized from a terrestrial source 132 power (figb), which manages the block 130 control APN. The cable 134 may also have bilateral lines 134a and 134b data, which may represent one or more electrical conductors or fiber optic cable, duplex line exchange of signals and data between APR 30, the sensors SEAPN and block 130 control APN. According to one feature of rabota APR 30 controls unit 130 controls APN. Block 130 control EPN can be a computer system that may include a processor, such as microprocessor, memory and software for analysis and control EPN 30. According to one feature, the controller 130 receives data from the sensors SE(figa) signals related to the actual frequency of the pump discharge, performance APN, pressure and temperature of the fluid in EPN 30, and can take measurements or data relating to certain chemicals, such as corrosion, deposits, asphaltenes, etc. and to respond to them or other calculations to manage work APR 30. According to one feature of the block 130 control EPN can be designed to change the speed of APN by transmitting control signals 134a in response to data received on line 134b, or commands received from the other controller. Block 130 control APN also may stop power supply in APN on line 134 power. According to another particular unit 130 controls APN can pass on APN data and information (frequency, temperature, pressure, data on chemical sensors and so on) of the Central controller 150, which in turn can transmit control signals or commands to the block 130 control APN to ensure the selected modes APN 30.

To control the discrepancies between the different devices in the borehole 50 and obtain measurement results and other data from various downhole sensors in the well 50 is laid a variety of hydraulic, electric lines and data lines (generally indicated by the position 20 (figa)). For example, the system 21 of the pipes from the surface of a specific chemical reagent may through mandrel 36 fed or introduced into the fluid 56b. Similarly, the system 22 pipes-specific reagent can through mandrel 37 fed or introduced into the fluid 56 in production tubing string. Lines 23 and 24 can be used to control any other device such as a valve 67. Line 25 may be used to supply electricity in some downhole device from the corresponding ground power source. Two-way data link between the sensors and their associated electronics (generally indicated by the position 25A and located in any one or more of the relevant provisions in the well) can be installed in any desired way, including, without limitation, wire, fiber optic, acoustic telemetry communication channel with hydroline; electromagnetic telemetry, etc.

According to one feature in the relevant provisions in the well 50 are a variety of other sensors for transmission measurements or information relating to the number of interest downhole parameters. According to one of the features is it in production tubing string may be located one or more holders of measuring devices or sensors, such as the holder 15 to accommodate any number of relevant sensors. In the holder 15 can accommodate one or more temperature sensors, pressure sensors, sensors for measuring the flow rate sensor for measuring the resistance of the sensors that transmit information about the density, viscosity, water content or water cut, etc. and chemical sensors that transmit information about the deposits, corrosion, asphaltene, hydrates, etc. the Sensor density can be an apparatus for measuring the density of the fluid coming from each production zone, and the density of the combined fluid from two or more productive areas. The resistance sensor or other suitable sensor can perform measurements associated with water content or water content of the mixture of fluids coming from each production zone. For the calculation of oil-water factor and gas factor for each productive zone and the joint fluid can be used with other sensors. Temperature sensors, pressure and flow rate perform measurements of temperature, pressure and velocity of fluid through the line 53. For measurement of pressure, temperature, speed of supply of the fluid and the water content in the reservoir fluid received from the upper productive zone 52a, you can use the additional holders measuring the output devices. To perform measurements related to the chemical characteristics of the downhole fluid, such as paraffin content, hydrate, sulphide, sediments, asphaltene, emulsions, etc. can be used for more downhole sensors in other desired positions. In addition, in the well 50 may be permanently installed sensors Si-Smfor the implementation of acoustic or seismic or microseismic measurements, measurements of reservoir pressure and temperature, measurement of resistivity measurements of the properties of casing 51 and a thickness of 55 species. Such sensors can be installed on the well casing 57 or between the casing 57 and thickness of 55 species. In addition, the filter 59A and(or) filter 59b may be covered by the indicator substances, which are released in the presence of water that can be detected on the surface or in the borehole and allows to detect or predict water breakthrough. On the surface can also be installed sensors, such as, for example, a sensor for measuring the water content in the incoming fluid, the total volume of incoming fluid, the wellhead pressure of the fluid, temperature, etc., Other devices can be used to calculate the sand for each zone.

In General, in the well 50 may be appropriately placed enough sensors to implement the Oia measurement for each desired parameter, of interest. Such sensors may without limitation include sensors for measuring the pressure in each productive zone, the pressure for the selected section of the wellbore, the pressure inside the pipes for supplying the reservoir fluid pressure in the annular space; sensors for measuring temperature at selected points throughout the borehole; a sensor for measuring the flow rate of fluid in each of the productive zones, the total flow rate, performance APN; sensors for measuring temperature and pressure in APN; chemical sensors for transmitting signals on the accumulation of chemical reagents, such as hydrates, corrosion, deposits and asphalt; acoustic or seismic sensors for measurement signals generated on the surface or in adjacent wells, and signals associated with the migration of fluid from the injection wells or fracturing operations; optical sensors for measuring chemical composition and other parameters; sensors for measuring various characteristics of the strata of rocks surrounding a borehole, such as resistivity, porosity, permeability, density of fluid, etc. Sensors can be installed on the tubing in the borehole or on any device, or can be permanently installed in the well, for example, on the casing of the well, on the barrel with the vazhiny or between the casing and wall. The sensors may include sensors of any appropriate type, including electrical sensors, mechanical sensors, piezoelectric sensors, fiber optic sensors, optical sensors, etc. Signals from the downhole sensors may be partially or fully processed in the wellbore (as, for example, a microprocessor and associated electronics, is able to exchange signals or data from downhole sensors and devices), and then transmitted to the ground controller 150 through the transmission line signals/data, such as line 101. The signals from the downhole sensors can also be transmitted directly to the controller 150.

As shown in figb, the system 10 further comprises a ground unit 120 for injection of chemicals for feed additives a into the well 50 and additives 113b in ground unit 170 cleaning fluid. The desired additives a from the source 116A (such as a reservoir) can build up in the bore 50 via pressure lines 21 and 22 through the corresponding pump 118, such as a reciprocating positive-displacement pump. Supplements a flow on the lines 21 and 22 and flow into the reservoir 30 and 37. For feed additives in different productive zones can be the same or separate discharge line. Separate discharge line, such as lines 21 and 22 allow the OS is to conduct independent injection of different additives at different depths in the borehole. In this case, to store and discharge the desired additives used different sources of supplements and pumps. Additives can also be introduced in onshore pipelines, such as line 176, or surface treatment and processing facility, such as block 170.

The corresponding flow meter 120, which may be a designed for low flow rate precision flow meter (such as a flowmeter gear type or rotary flowmeter that measures the flow rate of fluid in the lines 21 and 22 and transmits the signals reflecting the relevant rates of flow. Pump 118 controls the corresponding device 122, such as an engine, or driven by compressed air device. The stroke of the pump and / or the speed of the pump can be regulated by the controller 80 through setting circuit 92 and the line a management. The controller 80 may control the pump 118 by using programs stored in the memory 91, associated with the controller 80 and / or commands transmitted to the controller 80 by the Central controller or processor 150 or the remote controller 185. The Central controller 150 communicates with the controller 80 through appropriate bilateral line 85, which may be a wired, fiber optic or wireless connection, and using one or more of sootvetstvujushij protocols. The controller 80 may include a processor 92, a resident memory 91 for storing programs, tables, data, and models. The processor 92 uses the signals measuring the flow rate of the device taken on line 121, and a program stored in the memory 91 to determine the consumption of each of the additives, and displays the performance of such consumption on the display 81. The sensor 94 is able to provide information about one or more pump parameters such as the speed of the pump, the stroke length of the piston, etc. for Example, the speed of the pump or the stroke length of the piston can be increased when the measured amount of injection of the additive is less than the desired number, and reduced when the injection quantity is larger than the desired number. The controller 80 also contains schemes and programmes, generally indicated by the position 92, for interoperability with local display 81 and to perform other desired functions. The sensor a level provides information about the remaining content source 116. Alternatively, the Central controller 150 may transmit controller 80 team regarding discharge supplements, or may perform the functions of the controller 80. Although figa-2B illustrate one production well, it is understood that in the oil field can be there are many wells, and could the t to be located in a variety of wells, such as neighboring wells, injection wells, test wells, etc. devices shown in the drawings, can be used on any number of such wells and can be configured for collaborative or independent work.

Figure 3 shows a block diagram of example system 200 well operation, which can be used to control zoom, optimizing or maximizing well production and to optimize operation of the reservoir. The system 200 includes a Central control unit or controller 150, which includes one or more processors, such as processor 152, the corresponding storage device 154 and the corresponding circuit 156, designed to implement the various described in the invention functions and methods. The system 200 includes a base 230 of the data stored on the corresponding machine-readable medium accessible to the processor 152. In the data 230 may include: (i) data and information on well completions, as, for example, the types and locations of sensors in the borehole, the sensor parameters, the types of devices and their parameters, such as the type and size of fittings, the provisions of the fittings, the type and size of valves, valve position, the wall thickness of casing pipes etc; (ii) formation characteristics, such as the type species for the different layers of the reservoir, porosity, permeable is here, mobility, resistivity and depth of each layer and the production zone; (iii) the parameters of sand filters; (iv) information about the indicator substances; (v) the parameters APN, such as power, frequency range, and the ranges of operating pressures and temperatures; (vi) the behavior (performance) well for the last period, including the flow rate over time for each production zone, the pressure and temperature over time for each production zone; (vii) current and previous settings fittings and valves; (viii) information about the intervention and maintenance; (ix) the data content of sand and water over time for each production zone; (x) the original seismic data (two - or three-dimensional maps) and updated seismic data (four-dimensional seismic maps); (xi) data control front water; (xii) any other information that may be useful for monitoring and increasing the flow rate of the well 50.

During well operation is usually carried out one or more tests, collectively indicated by the position 224 to calculate the degree of health of the various elements of the well and the various parameters of the productive zones and layers of the formation surrounding the borehole. Such trials may without limitation include verification of casing pipes and the use of electric or acoustic probes; testing private wells, which may include tests with high or variable pressure, tests on heat flow, seismic studies, in which source can be used on the surface and the seismic sensors in the borehole to determine the state of the water front and boundary layers; microseismic measurements, such as testing after fracturing operations or water injection; control assay front fluid; tests on secondary production, etc. All data 224 such tests can be stored in memory and transmitted to the processor 152 to control the flow rate of the well 50, carrying out analysis concerning the increase, optimizing or maximizing well production 50 and optimizing the operation of the reservoir.

In addition, the processor 152 system 200 may periodically or continuously access data 222 measurements downhole sensors, data 226 ground-based measurements and any other desired information or data 228 measurements. Data 222 measurements downhole sensors include, without limitation data of water content or water cut, resistivity, density, viscosity, sand content, flow rate, pressure, temperature, chemical properties or composition of fluids, gravity, slope, results of electrical and electromagnetic measurements, gas and water is the oil of factors fluids and regulations fittings and valves. Data 226 ground-based measurements include, without limitation, the data of flow rate, pressure, regulations, fittings and valves, parameters APN, calculations of water content, velocity and location of the discharge of chemicals, data detection indicator substances, etc.

The system 200 also contains programs, models and algorithms 232 embedded in one or more machine-readable media accessible to the processor 152 to execute the commands contained in the programs. The processor 152 may use one or more programs, models, and algorithms to perform the various described in the invention functions and methods. According to one feature of the program/model/algorithms 232 can be implemented in the form of a behavior analyzer wells (APS), which is used by the processor 152 to analyze some or all of the data 222, 226 measurement data 224 trials, information from the database 230 data and any other desired information, which receives a processor for calculating or predicting one or more operational parameters of the well.

According to one feature of the processor may be configured to determine the rate of fluid from each zone, such as shown in figa zone 52A and B, and the total flow rate, compared to the national rate with the expected performance debiti act, when the actual flow rate falls below the expected level, as shown in block 260. As noted earlier, in the initial stages shown in figure 1 cycle 1B optimizing the operation of the reservoir creates a plan of expected production of the well. Figure 5 shows a diagram 500 illustrating a curve 510 hypothetical expect a decline in production of the well 50. Curve 510 decline shows the dependence of the expected oil production rate plotted on the vertical axis and the duration of extraction (in years)plotted on the horizontal axis. Curve 550 displays the actual performance of the well 50. In the beginning of the countdown well commissioning and start producing at the level 552, with production exceeds the expected level until it falls below the expected level at the moment 556.

APS analyzes the data using the measurement results of one or more sensors, the data from the database and test data, as well as the current settings of various devices to regulate the flow rate, and determines the actions, the implementation of which is expected to increase well production rate to the expected level or levels higher than expected. To identify actions that can be taken to increase well production, APS uses models, programs, and algorithms. To this end, the APS t is the train can use the circuit analysis method of nodal potentials and can expect higher production levels after the specified actions have been implemented. The processor transmits to the operator and the remote controller 185 messages 262 containing the proposed action. The processor may also periodically or predominantly continuously display certain information on the display 262 for use by the operator and(or) remote controller 185, such information may without limitation include data extraction from each zone, the data of the current settings of valves and fittings, data frequency and performance APN, data accumulation of chemicals in the well, the water content for each zone, etc. of the Proposed action may include changing the frequency APN, changing the flow rate of the injected chemicals, changing the settings fittings and valves etc. APS can also expect the estimated effect of one or more proposed changes to the mining and the impact of cumulative changes. In some situations, it may be desirable to reduce the production from one zone to increase production from other zones. According to one feature, the processor waits until the operator does not effect the proposed changes. If the operator does not do these steps, the processor may send reminders and send messages in the deleted items including emails. As soon as the operator carries out the proposed action, the production is acinet grow until 558, and then begins to fall until 560. According to one feature of the APS may be designed not to expect a decline below the expected level appropriate to the moment 556, and to extrapolate on the basis of the curve of decline and send the operator a message with instructions to perform one or more specified processor action, the operator can advance to react and to maintain production at a higher level. Subsequently, the well productivity may fall below the expected level, as in the above example, additional steps are carried out at the moment 562, does not lead to increase oil production up to a level higher than expected, so it may be desirable to carry out the extraction of secondary methods. The processor 152 may display on the display for the operator is shown in figure 5 charts. The results of the performed analysis can be transferred to the remote controller 185, which may use such information to update the model geological and physical characteristics (cycle 1B, figure 1). Illustrated in figure 5, the example corresponds to the scenario according to which actual production exceeds the expected production based on the original model. In other situations, the actual production can begin with lower rates and may not p is avisat anticipated production rates. In any case, can be applied to the above-described method.

According to other features of the results of the performed APS analysis can follow that to increase or optimize well production, such as the well 50, more preferably to carry out the production from one zone until the water content does not exceed the selected value. In other words, it may be desirable to carry out the production from one zone until the sensor readings watering will not exceed the limit of the productive life of the well and its equipment. Then, the system 200 overlaps the first area, opens the second zone, and the extraction fluid is carried out as described above until it is profitable.

According to other features of the system 200 can predict the characteristics of the process of production fluid from the well and to adjust the characteristics of the wells with the aim of optimizing or maximizing well production. For example, the APS can predict water breakthrough or the occurrence of the cross flow or wear any device or casing pipes, etc. to determine the necessary actions to transfer the message to an operator, as described above, the necessity to change the characteristics of the well or may automatically carry out such actions.

For example, the APS can determine the source or sources of water breakthrough ka is, for example, location in a productive zone, the location in the strata of the rocks above and / or below the production zone; cracks in the cement binder between the casing and the thickness of rocks; the location of the water front is relatively well etc. APS can also determine the degree or severity of the expected breakthrough of the water and the expected time or period of time, may occur when water breakthrough. To determine the breakthrough of waters of the Central controller 150 may calculate a specific target (such as water content, water content, etc.)concerning the formation fluid (for each zone and(or) total flow rate), for a certain period of time and to calculate or to predict the likelihood of a breakthrough of water using these estimates of water. The controller 150 can use the trend associated with an indicator of water for a certain period of time, or to use in real or near-real-time estimates of water to detect and / or predict the likelihood of a breakthrough of water. Indicator water in reservoir fluid may be specified by the analyzer on the surface, which determines the water content or water content of the produced fluid 224. Indicator water may without limitation include the number, water content in percent, the maximum value, the value of var is in values, etc. Indicator water or the water content of the reservoir fluid can also be calculated on the basis of readings of the downhole sensors (such as sensors, resistivity or density); analysis of indicator substances present in the produced fluid in the well or on the surface; the results of the density measurement; or evidence of any other relevant sensors. According to other features, the processor may predict the likelihood of a breakthrough of water by using the results of the acoustic measurements made permanent downhole sensors, or the results of microseismic measurements or four-dimensional seismic maps showing the front water-specific productive zone, or on the basis of cracks in the rock, accompanying a productive zone. The processor can also predict the location and extent of water breakthrough on the basis of the calculation of the casing wear according to the control casing or on the basis of the wear of the cement binder. According to one of features to determine a desired action, the Central controller uses the proactive model or a neural network. These models can, for example, be used to assess the efficiency of the one or more actions, costs associated with the implementation of one or more actions for the implementation of a comparative analysis of two or more of such actions, etc.

After the Central controller 150 predicts the potential breakthrough of the water, it defines the actions that need to be taken to mitigate or eliminate the negative effects of water breakthrough and how it is possible to optimize production. The Central controller 150 may recommend to block specific productive area by closing the valve or fitting; to cover all areas; close fitting on the surface; reduce the production of fluid from a particular area; to increase the production of fluid from unaffected areas, change the frequency APN or off APN; change the flow rate of the injected chemical agents in the area, etc. of the Central controller 150 transmits the recommendations to the operator. If water breakthrough concerns only one of all zones, the system may recommend extraction of fluid from the potentially affected area up to a certain point, and then to cover this area prior to the occurrence of the water breakthrough. Alternatively, the system can recommend to reduce the production from one zone and continue production from other zones, or in some cases, the system may recommend to increase production of one or more other zones. According to one feature of the APS in each case may determine the combination of actions that are likely to maximise the flow rate until it is stopped for repair.

As described above, the processor transmits a message to an operator indicating to perform the desired actions, transmits such information to the remote controller and displays the desired data for use by the operator. The processor continues to monitor the consequences of the actions carried out by operators, similar to that described above with reference to figure 5. After the operator makes a change, the Central controller 150 continues to process the data flood and continues to operate as described above. According to another particularly when the Central controller 150 detects threatening a breakthrough of water or alarming situation, he may initiate one or more desired actions.

According to another particular hydrocarbon production can be increased by reducing water withdrawals from productive zones on the basis of selected criteria. APS can determine the production rates of the various zones, which will reduce water withdrawal from wells, but will be maintained or will increase the production of hydrocarbons from the well. According to one feature of the APS determines that such production levels, which is also supported by the pressure at a desired level or in a selected range. Then the TSA specifies settings of valves and fittings, frequency, or power APN and the flow rate of the injected chemicals. - % The SOR sends the operator and the remote controller messages and performs other functions like as is described above.

According to other features of the system 200 may contribute to changes in the production in case of detection or prediction of the transverse flow. In normal operating conditions of the well 50, the pressure in the lower productive zone V exceeds the pressure in the upper productive zone 52a. In such conditions wireline fluid 56 from the upper productive zone will take place in the surface direction, as indicated by arrows 77A. However, under certain conditions, the pressure Pu in the upper productive zone 52a can begin to grow and subsequently exceed the pressure "Pl" in the lower productive zone W. As this shift of wireline pressure fluid from the upper production zone begins to flow towards the lower production zone. At a certain point in time, the pressures Pu and pressure Pl intersect. In such a scenario, it may be impossible to maintain the production of reservoir fluids 56a and 56b of the bore 50, and can cause damage to one or more downhole devices, such as EPN 30 and the wellbore as a whole. According to one feature of the Central controller 150 continuously calculates pressure Pu and Pl, and uses the model or program to predict the occurrence of intersection, and determines one or more actions that should be osushestvleniu response to detection of the transverse flow. APS may contain one or more models and / or algorithms, which may be based on data for the last period or laboratory data, or other synthesized data to determine the expected time of occurrence of the crossing. Models may take into account any number of factors, such as the percentage by which the well pressure exceeds the formation pressure, and duration of existence of such condition; the rate of change of pressure Pu and Pl; the difference of the pressures Pu and Pl, temperatures in the upper and lower producing zones; larger than the pressure in the annular space (upper zone) pressure tubing (lower zone), and open the area for extraction of fluids; and when the results of the downhole flow measurements indicate that the flow approaching the cross flow; and any other desired factors. The Central controller also calculates the severity and timing of potential cross flow and defines actions that should be implemented. The Central controller may send a warning or alert signal simultaneously with the recommendation of the one or more actions, including, without limitation, recommendations: to close or partially close a particular fitting, such as fitting 40; block or in order to keep the flow of formation fluid 56a on line 45; to close the spool valve 67; change the speed (frequency) APN 30 or disable APN 30; change the number of additives a or 113b, injected into the bore 50, and the ground unit 170 processing; to block or isolate a specific area; to reduce the pressure on the surface; open ground fitting; to reduce the flow through the particular fitting or close specific fitting; and any other applicable recommendation. According to one feature of the recommended actions can represent the optimization of well production. The Central controller 150 continues to monitor describes the characteristics of wells to continuously assess the impact of the changes made by the operator, and continues to provide additional input and recommendations just as described in the invention.

According to other features of the system 200 may recommend or take any action based on the degree of serviceability of equipment. For example, the system 200 can measure the corrosion or accumulation of deposits on any device, such as a valve, or to establish that APN works outside of the specified parameters, or to measure the wear of the casing or cement binder, etc. in response to set an action plan that can ensure optimal net present value of the well. Then, the system 200 is udaetsya implement the plan mainly described above.

According to another features of APS can analyze the data in order to reduce or minimize the removal of sand from each production zone. According to one feature of the processor 152 can control the amount of sand carried from each zone, and by using a circuit analysis method of nodal potentials to predict the sand from each zone. The processor may control the pressure in each productive zone and proceeding from him, and(or) using other data to calculate the sand or anticipated removal of sand from each production zone. Then, the controller determines the appropriate actions, the implementation of which will be reduced to sand and(or) increase the production of hydrocarbons. Actions may include reducing the production of the affected areas, increased production from other zones, the cessation of production from the affected area or any combination of them. Then the MTA passes the message to an operator through a display of actions. The steps may also include changing the speed of APN and changing the flow rate of the injected chemicals to account for changes in production from different zones. The system 200 continues to monitor the impact of changes made by the operator, and can also be designed to transition to automatic mode to automatically initiate any action.

The agreement is but the other features of APS can be calculated on the analysis of the data state variable pressure and calculation of production from each zone, and adjustment of equipment with the purpose of increasing, optimizing or maximizing well production. Figure 4 shows a diagram 400 illustrating an example of change of pressure over time, where the vertical axis represents pressure, and the horizontal axis represents time. Shows the pressure curve corresponds to the period after the productive area was closed. The pressure to close is usually mostly constant. When closing the productive zone pressure slowly begins to grow within a short period of time, such as the period ending at time 412, then mainly grows at a constant rate, as indicated by section 414, after which smoothly changes as indicated by section 416. APS analyzes the data variable pressure and sets the various downhole devices in the system 10 to increase well production, based on selected criteria, and sends the new settings to the operator or automatically installs a new device setup and then continues to monitor the impact of the new settings and to provide feedback as described above.

According to another features of APS can analyze test data well and set new parameter extraction and appropriate new settings. According to the other features of APS can expect the presence and(or) the rate of accumulation of chemical reagents, such as deposits, corrosion, hydrates and asphaltenes, and can expect their influence on the rate of extraction and the degree of serviceability of certain devices, such as valves, fittings, APN and piping systems. APS defines actions and sends the appropriate message to the operator and in remote settlements and performs tracking functions described above. Actions may include changing the flow rate of the injected chemicals, changing the speed of APN, changing the flow of the one or more zones, removing components, valves and fittings to clean from corrosion or deposits, etc.

In some situations, various options and settings can be interdependent. For example, if the decrease in production from one zone by installing the fitting in position less bandwidth may change the pressure in the well and the flow rate of the other areas, and may require a different setting APN and different flow rate of the injected chemical agents, etc. as another example, the cessation of production from one zone can provide the desired increase in hydrocarbon production, but can cause damage APN, because when reducing the speed of its work to a level consistent with the rate of production, APN may go beyond the specified technical requirements. In this case, it may be desirable to e who H worked with better performance and selected a small portion of the fluid from the zone, which was originally selected for closure. According to one of the features in any of the scenarios described above APS defines actions or settings on the basis of compliance with the selected criterion or criteria in order to enhance, optimize or maximize well productivity. APS can perform a circuit analysis method of nodal potentials or to use preemptive model, enabling configuration of the various devices.

Figure 6 shows the functional block diagram 600, the APS 610 performs circuit analysis method of nodal potentials, uses neural network and(or) other proactive model to set various operating parameters, such as setting of various devices, and to increase the flow rate with a specific configuration. According to one feature of the APS 610 receives the data of ground-based measurements or the results of calculations on the basis of ground-based measurements 612, downhole measurements or the results of calculations based on downhole measurements 620, data 614 tests, information from the database data 616 and any other information 618, which may be relevant to a particular well, and uses the circuit analysis method of nodal potentials and(or) other proactive model to specify new settings. The circuit analysis method of nodal potentials can in order to enable prediction of the effects of the new settings on the production and the iteration of this process, until there is a new combination of settings (final plan), which will increase, optimization, or to maximize the production rate of a particular well. According to one feature may include or not include the impact of the plan on production at the field. According to other features of the circuit analysis method of nodal potentials may be based in part on the analysis of net present value, so that the new settings have increased the expected total net present cash inflows from production wells, as shown in block 650. APS is trying to carry out the steps described above.

As shown in figb, the Central controller can be configured to automatically initiate one or more of the recommended actions, for example, by transmitting control signals to the controllers of the selected devices, such as controller APN to adjust APN 242; control units or drives (160, figa and element 240), which control the downhole fittings 244, downhole valves 246, ground fittings 249, unit 250 controls the injection of chemical reagents, other devices 254, etc. Such actions may be taken in real or almost real time. In step 264, the Central controller 150 continues to con the exercise of their results of their actions. According to another features of the Central controller 150 or the remote controller 185 may be configured to update one or more models/algorithms/programs 234 for further use with the aim of monitoring wells. Thus, the system 200 may, in closed loop mode to control the behavior of the well, to perform or to procure the realization of the desired action and continue to monitor the results of such actions.

SUBSTANCE: development method of heavy oil or bitumen deposit with control of well product extraction involves construction of upper injection and lower production wells with horizontal sections located one above another. At construction of wells their horizontal sections are equipped with filters installed opposite productive formation zones. Inside filter with non-perforated interval in production well there arranged is a shank provided with inlet holes dividing the filter into extraction zones. Besides, shank is equipped on the inner side with a stock with side channels. Inner space of stock is interconnected with inlet of pump lowered to production well on the tubing string with possibility of longitudinal movement of the tubing string together with pump and stock in the shank. Heat carrier is pumped through horizontal injection well with warming-up of the formation by creating the steam chamber, and product is extracted through horizontal production well. Thermograms of steam chamber are taken, the chamber's warm-up state is analysed for uniform heating and available temperature peaks, and considering the obtained thermograms, uniform heating of steam chamber is performed. Before the tubing is lowered to production well, first, stock is lowered with a shank concentrically arranged on it and fixed in transport position with a shear screw. Besides, on the outer side of the shank lower end there installed is heat-resistant packer; after the stock is lowered to production well, lower end of tubing is put on its upper end. Tubing is equipped with a pump. Tubing is lowered to production well till the packer is arranged at non-perforated interval of production well filter; after that, packer is installed by dividing the filter of production well into two extraction zones - initial and final. Uniform heating of steam chamber is performed by supplying the heat carrier through injection well. Penetration of heat carrier and/or formation water to the pump inlet is avoided by controlling the product extraction to the pump inlet from the initial extraction zone. Besides, product extraction volume is reduced in the initial extraction zone where temperature peaks occur. For that purpose, inlet shank holes corresponding to the initial extraction zone are made with reduction of carrying capacity from face to head, and side channels of stock are provided with possibility of alternating interaction with one of inlet shank hole in the initial extraction zone. This is performed by restricted longitudinal movement of pipe string together with pump and stock relative to shank by increasing or reducing the number of connection pipes on upper end of pipe string depending on the distance between inlet holes of the shank. Pipe string is fixed on the head of production well in the required position by means of a face plate on a supporting flange, and shank hole corresponding to the final extraction zone is made in the form of an open stock end.

EFFECT: improving the control of product extraction volume from extraction zones; simpler erection and lower metal consumption on the design.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to production of natural gas ad may be used in methane-coal well development. Proposed method comprises perforation of operation string in interval of production bed and its hydraulic fracturing. Thereafter, operation string is flushed. Settled fluid level allows defining initial counter pressure on productive coal bed. Production tubing with borehole pump is lowered into flow tubing, the pump being located under perforation interval. Well head is sealed.
