Use of ionized fluid during hydraulic fracturing of formation

FIELD: oil and gas industry.

SUBSTANCE: method includes: introducing a fluid containing positively charged ions into at least some of the fractures; provision of said ions to convert shales along cracks into aragonite crystals so that some of the aragonite crystals become suspended in the fluid; removing some of the fluid with the weighted aragonite crystals from said formation. Removal of the aragonite crystals opens or expands the fractures and increases the permeability of the formation by increasing the amount and production rate of hydrocarbons from said formation. The fluid remaining in the mass continues to convert the following calcite crystals along cracks into aragonite crystals, so that aragonite becomes more weighted in the fluid, a certain amount of the weighted aragonite fluid is removed from said formation, thereby further increasing or maintaining the permeability of said formation.

EFFECT: increased hydrocarbon production efficiency.

SUBSTANCE: invention is referred to the oil industry and may be used for the stimulation of hydrocarbon production, in particular, of an oil or gas condensate, in wells, increase in their recovery factor due to the treatment of the bottomhole zone of this production formation penetrated by wells included into the formation development. According to the technique, wellhead sealing is performed. Then the well is shut down by the injection of a fluid blocking inflow from the productive formation. At the initial phase an excess pressure is generated in the well so that it exceeds the hydrostatic pressure of the fluid column affecting the productive formation per a preset value. The pressure in the well is increased further with the generation of pulse series of pressure increase in the mode of resonant oscillations with the preset frequency. Then the blocking fluid in the well is replaced by an operating fluid with the simultaneous generation of the pulse series of pressure increase in the well. The operating fluid is flushed to the productive formation at maintaining the pulse impact mode for the productive formation at another frequency differing from the earlier preset frequency until the pressure increases further in the productive formation at the final phase up to a preset value. Thereupon the pressure is decreased sharply in the well by pulse series with the provision of a break in integrity of a hydraulic medium in the productive formation zone. At that time intervals between the pulses in operations with the pressure increase are accepted as different from the time intervals between the pulses in operations with the pressure decrease.

EFFECT: increasing the production rate and reaching an initial value of the bottomhole zone permeability due to opening of a fracture network in the productive formation with prevailing vertical fractures, increasing mass exchange in the filtration zone and reliability of the filtration zone cleanup from products of man-made colmatation.

SUBSTANCE: group of inventions relates to oil producing industry and intended for improvement of oil recovery of productive formations. The method of excitement of wave field on the injection well face consists in that the flat constrained flow of liquid is supplied continuously from the slot-hole nozzle to the wedge nose. Meanwhile the area of primary generation of vortex structures in the zone behind the nozzle cut edge is formed. Periodic breakdown of ring vortex structures from the nozzle cut edge, their movement with flow and impact with the wedge nose are provided. Pressure disturbances are generated at deformation and destruction of vortex structures on the wedge nose. Propagation of periodic pressure disturbances from the wedge nose extensively in the form of elastic waves and their chaotic reflection from surrounding walls is performed. The excitation by energy of multiple vortex structures due to energy of elastic oscillations achieving primary generation area is conducted. The liquid flow on the wedge nose is deflected to one of two diverging outlet channels. The flow is divided at the inlet upstream the output channel and sent partially to the lateral chamber interfaced with the nozzle edge and the output channel. In the chamber the pressure is increased due to piston effect of the supplied flow and the flow is pushed away to the opposite output channel, formed from two of its sides by the pressure difference. Periodic switching of the liquid flow direction between output channels is provided. The liquid is displaced alternately from the diverging channels into the common punched output collector. The field of elastic oscillations is excite on the injection well face. Thus the elastic waves reflected from walls of each chamber are focused on the nozzle cut edge interfaced to it.

EFFECT: improvement of efficiency of conversion of kinetic energy of the flow to oscillatory energy of the wave field.

SUBSTANCE: group of inventions relates to the field of oil industry and can be used for enhanced oil recovery of the reservoir in the development of water-flooded reservoirs with viscous oil and bitumen at a late stage of development. The method comprises opening the reservoir with the ability to transfer the production well into the injection one, the reservoir processing, keeping the hole without any influence, intake of oil from the reservoir. At that a system of microwave electromagnetic generators with radiation frequency of 2.5 GHz is lowered into the injection well, connected to the slot antenna using the feeder. The length of the slot antenna is selected equal to the thickness of the aquifer of the reservoir. In the mode of injection, the water injection into the reservoir is carried out with simultaneous influence on the reservoir with microwave electromagnetic field, the radiation power is determined by the time of heating of the water injected in the downhole to the desired temperature. When filling 5-10% of the volume of the pore space of the formation, the well is maintained, the well is transferred into the production well, and the liquid intake from the production well is carried out.
