Figure 1 shows a device - General view; figure 2 shows the upper regulating device (longitudinal section); figure 3 - cross section a-a in figure 2 (enhanced); figure 4 shows the lower regulating device (longitudinal section).

The device for separation and control of production inventory, drained horizontal well 1 (figure 1), includes the string of pipe 2 with the cable 3, top 4 and bottom 5 of the regulating device in the form of electric valves 6, mounted on the control devices 4, 5 measuring the pressure sensor 7 and the temperature Vis one or more packers 9, overlying the inner space 10 of the well 1. The sensors 7, 8 are connected by the cable 3 with the unit 11 on the mouth 12 of the well 1, and regulating devices 4, 5 are connected to the same cable 3 to the control unit 13 of the control devices 4, 5. Higher regulatory devices 4, 5 are placed the pump 14 to raise the product to the surface by a line space 15.

Horizontal section of well 1 build through the layer 16 with different permeability zones a and B, sharing the results of geophysical issledovaniy the help of packers 9 layer 16 on the intervals permeable and medium - or high-permeability B. With this in-line space 15 divide by a plug 17, which are mounted one above the other top 4 and bottom 5 of the regulating device, placed in a vertical hole 18 wells 1 and is equipped with measuring sensors 7, 8.

The inlet 19 (figure 4) the lower regulating device 5 is in communication with the tubular space 20 below the stub 17 and output channels 21 - tube space 22 above the stub 17. The inlet 23 (2) upper control device 4 is in communication with the downhole space 10 (Fig 1), and the output 24 (figure 2) - with in-line space 15 (Fig 1) above stub 17 (Fig 1, 4), which indicated the entrance 25 (1) of the pump 14. The intervals a and B, separated by packers 9 in the horizontal section of the well 1, the joint through the nozzles 26, 27, passing through the packers 9, in two streams, each of which is communicated with a line space 15 or downhole space 10. For example, intervals And interconnected and downhole space 10 through pipe 27 and the spacing B of the joint between a line and a space 15 through pipe 26.

In addition, each regulating device 4 or 5 made in the form accommodated in the housing 28 (2, 4) of the motor 29 with the gear 30, the enemy is surrounding the shaft 31 which is connected via a connection screw-and-nut 32 with the plunger 33 and the valve 6, made with the possibility sealed engagement with the seat 34. Below the seat 34 posted by Cup 35 with the input in the form of holes 23 (2) or 19 (4) hosts the compensation chamber 36 (2, 4) with elastic walls in the form of, for example, rubber pipe 37 filled with lubricating fluid and reported by the hollow tube 38 with the internal space 39 of the pusher 33 and sealed by, for example, o-rings 40, the space 41 above the pusher 33.

The method is carried out in the following sequence.

Drill into the reservoir 16 (1) horizontal well 1. After conducting geophysical surveys and determine the number and lengths of the intervals of oil production (permeable - and medium - or high-permeability - B) in the horizontal section of the well 1 to the string of pipe 2 down and set, insulating between the intervals a and B, the downhole space 10, the packers 9 nozzles 26, 27, linking all the same neftepromremont intervals, and in a vertical hole 18 wells 1 are placed one above the other regulating devices - the bottom 5 and top 4 in the form of electric valves 6 with the measuring pressure sensors 7 and temperature 8 and an electric cable 3. With the valves 6 regulating devices 4, 5 are open to the best of occupancy nutrit the service space 15 production wells 1.

According to the information transmitted from the sensors 7, 8 on the measurement unit 11 mounted on the mouth 12 of the well 1, determine the pressure of each of the threads of the oil production and the corresponding temperature. Depending on the received data wellhead control unit 13 serves on the appropriate frequency on the cable 3, the signals on the cover (or priotkrytye) of the corresponding regulating device 4 or 5. The rise of production wells 1 on the mouth 12 is performed by the pump 14 through line space 15.

Monitoring data received from the sensors 7, 8 carry out constantly. If necessary, change the throughput cross section of the valve 6 control units 4, 5. For example, for enhanced oil recovery with intervals As well 1 will need to open the valve 6, the upper control device 4. To do this, the control unit 13 at the mouth of the 12 wells 1 signal cable 3 regulating device 4. When the motor 29 (figure 2)located in the housing 28 of the device 4 through the gear 30 begins to rotate in the desired direction of the shaft 31, which in turn is due to the connection of the screw-and-nut 32 moves the pusher 33 spline connection 42 from the valve 6. Under the action of the downhole pressure valve 6 (2, 3) moves along the guide 43 from seat 34 (figure 2), increasing its flow cross-section. The production from the wells of the intervals And passes the hour is ichno through pipe 27 (Fig 1), partially gets in front of him and moving on downhole space 10, enters through the inlet openings 23 (2) in the Cup 35, then through the seat 34 of the valve 6 and the output channels 21 (figure 2, 3) of the guide 43 and the output 24 rises on-line space 15 (Fig 1) to the input 25 of the pump 14.

To eliminate the load on the connection, the "screw-nut" 32 (2, 4) from downhole pressure valve 6 and the pusher 33 in the Cup 35 is placed compensating chamber 36, the rubber pipe 37 which is compressed under the action of the downhole pressure transmitting pressure through the lubricating fluid inside the pipe 37 through the pipe 38 and the channel 44 in the inner space 41 above the pusher 33. Since the cross-sectional area of the upper part 45 of the pusher 33 is equal to or slightly less than the cross-sectional area of the lower part 46 of the pusher 33 (or seat 34 of the valve 6 in the case if the valve 6 is fully closed), the pressure below the plunger 33 and above it are balanced (or almost balanced), relieving the load on the connection 32 from downhole pressure and thereby increasing the lifetime of the connection 32 and the rotating shaft 31, the motor 29 and gear 30. At the same time lubricating fluid performs the function of lubrication connection screw-and-nut 32 and the spline 42. For flow of lubricating fluid from the space 3 in the case of movement of the pusher 33 is channel 47.

The same principle works carried out and to the bottom of the regulating device 5 (Fig 1, 4). To prevent unauthorized lifting of the production well 1 (figure 1), bypassing the devices 4, 5, below them in-line space 15 install the plug 17. Production wells 1 interval B in this form through the pipe 26 into a single stream through the tube space 20 (figure 4) and holes 19 below the stub 17 of the valve 6 of the device 5 and later (when you open the valve 6 through the output channels 21 and tube space 22 above the stub 17 in-line space 15 (Fig 1). In the particular case of the pipe 26 perforined holes 48.

Thus, the use of the invention allows to expand technological capabilities in mining production from horizontal wells, connecting simultaneously permeable to medium - or high-permeability intervals extraction with various geophysical properties, which are separated by packers, two independent channels through uniting their pipes passing through the packers adjustable from the surface of the mode of production of each category of zones of separation between them. Due placement of control devices, sensors and cables in a vertical wellbore reduces the cost of installation of equipment and improving the quality and reliability of its set the Cai.

Formation product is extracted from different sections with different operating modes depending on permeability of sections - the lower permeability of the section is, the higher productivity of the pumping unit shall be. After development of the section with high permeability, the horizontal well with simultaneous separate operation is changed over for injection of a displacement agent to that section. After the section with low permeability is developed, the well is fully changed over to the injection well.

SUBSTANCE: method includes blocking of a perforation interval by means of injection of a blocking liquid and its pushing with a killing fluid to a bottomhole and to a bottomhole area of a bed with simultaneous monitoring of pressure at a well head, gas relief and process settling. At the same time, prior to injection of the blocking fluid, a sand screen is formed by injection of a pulp of quartz sand with fraction of 0.6-1.2 mm in a carrier fluid in two portions with a flow rate of a carrier fluid, the value of which does not exceed the maximum permissible value, defined according to the formula. At the same time the volume of the quartz sand in the first portion of the pulp is calculated in accordance with the formula with further process settling of the well for the time determined according to the formula after injection of the first pulp portion. The volume of the quartz sand in the second pulp portion is taken as equal to the volume of suffosion channels produced in the sand screen. The blocking fluid is a certain composition. The blocking fluid volume is previously calculated according to the formula. Besides, at the moment of completion of blocking fluid pushing, hydrodynamic pressure is determined in a tubing string. Afterwards the process settling of the well is carried out. Further injection of the killing fluid into the well is carried out along the tubing string until it appears at the well head. At the same time the well head pressure is controlled in the annular space of the well by means of gas and blocking fluid relief, providing for pressure at the inlet to the tubing string as permanent and equal to the predetermined hydrodynamic pressure.

EFFECT: improved efficiency of gas well killing.

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. Borehole pump is used to reduce fluid level in well annuity space to below perforation interval together with injection of buffer gas therein at initial counter pressure on the bed. Thereafter, feed of buffer gas is interrupted. Said fluid level in annuity space is maintained by means of borehole pump. Inflow of bed fluid is caused by releasing excess pressure of buffer gas from annuity space in control over variation in gas quantitative and/or qualitative composition at well head. Change in released buffer gas composition allows defining the beginning of coal methane from productive bed. Now, rate of buffer gas pressure release is decreased.

EFFECT: higher efficiency of well development.
