Method to increase formation hydrocarbon yield and intensify oil-gas-condensate production by means of formation radial penetration with water jet

FIELD: oil and gas industry.

SUBSTANCE: method includes installing into the well a high-strength tubing, a diverter with inner channel extending therethrough, tying and possible thereof orientation in space in the interval of the lower level drilling of lateral wellbores, sealing the wellhead, installing downhole equipment comprising a water jet nozzle, control unit of the wellbore path, navigation system, working flexible tubing, a device for redistribution of flow, return valve feeding the flexible tubing, supplying liquid into the inter-string area of the tubing/flexible tubing, moving the water jet nozzle through the sealing device. Through the diverter, in contact with rock, drilling of planned length radial wellbore is conducted using the navigation system for monitoring actual position of the wellbore in the formation, and with using the control unit of the wellbore path to provide wellbore drilling along the planned path. After driving the working flexible tubing string with the nozzle through the formation, removal from the formation and well flushing is carried out up to complete discharge of slime. By actuation of the mechanical turning device, the diverter is moved to another plane. The work cycle is repeated for the next lateral wellbore. Milling of a separate port for each lateral wellbore is carried out immediately before performing the main operation for driving lateral wellbores through the diverter. When drilling the lateral wellbore, the wellbore path is determined and changed by supplying the working flexible tubing with wellbore path control unit and the navigation equipment. In order to perform drilling of radial wellbores at the following levels, the supply and working flexible tubing is extracted from the well, tubing is removed from the mechanical anchor, fitting pipe of the tubing that was preinstalled and equal to the length of the transition to the next level is removed, the tubing is seated on the mechanical anchor, and the working flexible tubing with navigation system, control unit of the wellbore path, water jet nozzle is run in into well, after that the operation for drilling of radial wellbores is repeated.

EFFECT: increased productivity of wells and hydrocarbons recovery factor, possibility to conduct address action on the formation, possibility to conduct intensification without effecting on string cement support with considerable pressure drop and chemical destruction, possibility to stimulate the formation by a significant pressure drop or chemical failure, cleaning the wellbore when drilling thereof.

SUBSTANCE: method of high-viscosity oil field production with horizontal wells involves drilling of two horizontal wells, injector and producer, in the oil reservoir thickness. Producer is positioned below injector level, steam is injected to the injector and oil is swept from producer, presence of bottom water is checked, and if present, minimum height of producer path above water and oil interface, optimum distance between producer and injector, minimum distance from injector to formation top, and optimum thickness of oil reservoir allowing for parallel position of the producer and injector in the same vertical plane are determined, and if oil reservoir thickness drops below the optimum, injector drilling path in the oil reservoir space against the producer is modified by reducing the vertical distance between the wells, and injector is lead away from the producer in horizontal plane with account of reservoir anisotropy, preserving permeability gradient between the injector and producer.

EFFECT: enhanced efficiency of thermal effect on field with low constant and variable thickness of oil reservoir.

SUBSTANCE: high load capacity is achieved by applying the methods using unique mechanisms of load transfer. For example, a higher load bearing capacity can be provided by using the principle of load distribution, according to which the torsional stresses are transferred together through the universal joint pins and the side faces of the universal joint crossbars. Higher load bearing capacity can also be achieved by transferring the load through the monolithic crossbar having pins constituting with it an integral whole, and a unit of dismountable connector/clamp. In another embodiment, a higher load bearing capacity is a result of using the universal joint pins inserted from the inner side of the universal joint and screwed outwardly until complete connection with the joint connectors. Each of the embodiments of the universal joint can also be designed with the ability of the pressurised passing of the drilling solution through the joint.

Further, the controlled rotor tool consists of a tubular shaft mounted inside the case and connected to a drill string on its first and second ends. The shaft transfers torque to a bore bit and also forms a channel for flow of drill agent to the bore bit. The controlled rotor tool comprises a pressure chamber formed between the shaft and the case and connected at least with one of the above said controlled pusher to transfer the controlled pusher from the retracted position into the extended one, and a piston movably installed in the tubular shaft. By means of preliminary specified changes of drilling agent pressure, the piston travels between the first axial position and the second axial position. In the first axial position internal section of the shaft is connected directly with the pressure chamber, which causes transfer of at least one above said controlled pusher into the extended position for contact with the wall of the well and corrects the direction of the drilling device. In the second axial position the internal section of the shaft is not connected directly with the pressure chamber to prevent transfer of one or each said controlled pusher into the extended position.
