A New Gas Injection System for Ultra-Thick Metamorphic Rock Buried Hill Reservoirs

Xu Ning, HE Chengchen, XU Wanchen, LI Ruoyi, SI Yong, XU Ping


This article proposes a new gas injection system that is a kind of tridimensional gas injection mode applied in the middle-lower part of the reservoir during the process of gas injecting on the reservoir top, which is suitable for the tridimensional reservoir development[1-2]. This system can express the gravity-stable drive effect on the crestal gas injection as well as the effective using of waterflooded wells to form continual micro gas/water slug drive naturally, supply the producing energy timely, diminish the water sealing of waterflooded reservoir matrix, enhance the gas dialysis on fine crack and microscopic sweep efficiency and control the water content, thus improve the production rate and enhance the recovery. Tridimensional gas injection system has been verified by physical simulation and numerical simulation. Pilot testing on Xinggu 7 buried hill reservoir has acquired an actual effect to increase the oil production, boost the pressure and decrease the water cut.
