Abstract

This study covers the laboratory tests results of a chemical composition intended to intensify the production of high-viscosity oil and at the same time to reduce the watercut of the products extracted, by limiting the water inflow to the well. Watering out of the well products due to the breakthrough of contour waters along the more permeable part of the layer and coning of the layer water when developing reserves of high-viscosity oil – these are the actual problems in oil production.

This study is aimed at developing a reagent based on a mixture of various surface-active substances (surfactants) and alkali to intensify the production of high-viscosity oil and at the same time limit water inflow.

The experimental part of the study shows the behavior of the composition in a porous medium taking as an example a bulk model of oil and water saturated core, as well as a core model with residual oil saturation. The results of the leak-off tests confirmed the effectiveness of the composition developed.

Thus, the developed chemical composition has a selective effect: it allows intensifying the production of high-viscosity oil and at the same time limiting water inflow, ensuring inflow profile modification in producing wells.

Key words:

surfactants, high-viscosity oil, water control, intensify the production, filtration tests, selective effect
