Due to increasing of low-cost reservoir pressure control approaches without special well stopping approved on certain oilfields there is a necessity of their applicability conditions and restriction definition. The aim of the work is establishing applicability of some pressure formation control approach published in the references and based on usage of borehole washing density and static level after well servicing as formation pressure estimations. In the present work pressure estimation error was arrived by designing, accomplishing and analysing special well test experiments. Reservoir pressure error was estimated with regard to reservoir pressure from buildup tests. Bottomhole pressure was being recorded during experiments by downhole pressure and temperature gauges. As results of work empirical relationships between reservoir pressure and formation transmissibility for two geological layers were established – the greater transmissibility, the less the reservoir pressure error. In spite of economical advantages of approach under discussion for low permeability formations and layers with high viscosity fluid reservoir pressure determination error is over 10%. Results are valid only for fixed well killing operation technology: water or oil-based well-killing fluid application, well washing through casing or tubing. There is no guaranty of test result pretension for another technologies. Necessity of pressure calculation from static level to pressure will increase reservoir pressure estimation error.

Key words:

Formation pressure control; formation pressure; static fluid level; well servicing; borehole washing.
