Abstract


In order to satisfy the plugging demands of injecting the cement plugging agent into reservoirs with different radial depths, the technical studies of cement particle size optimization should be conducted. Through indoor experiment, the relationship between cement particle size and permeability was investigated by both macroscopic and microcosmic analysis. It is observed that the reservoirs which permeabilities are within 50~200mD are matching well with the cement agents which particle sizes are less than 5μm. And the permeabilities within 200~400mD are matching well with the cement agents which particle sizes are within 5~10μm, the permeabilities within 400~700mD are matching well with the cement agents which particle sizes are within 10~20μm, the permeabilities are above 700mD are matching well with the cement agents which particle sizes are more than 20μm. The plugging success rates of all the matching experiments are exceeding 90%. This research result is important to direct the plugging operation in the field.
