Horizontal Wells are often used to develop condensate gas reservoirs. When there is edge water in the gas reservoir, it will have a negative impact on the production of natural gas. Therefore, reasonable prediction of its water breakthrough time is of great significance for the efficient development of condensate gas reservoirs.At present, the prediction model of water breakthrough time in horizontal Wells of condensate gas reservoir is not perfect, and there are mainly problems such as incomplete consideration of retrograde condensate pollution and inaccurate determination of horizontal well seepage model. Based on the ellipsoidal horizontal well seepage model, considering the advance of edge water to the bottom of the well and condensate oil to formation, the advance of edge water is divided into two processes. The time when the first water molecule reaches the bottom of the well when the edge water tongue enters is deduced, that is, the time of edge water breakthrough in condensate gas reservoir.The calculation results show that the relative error of water breakthrough time considering retrograde condensate pollution is less than that without consideration, with a higher accuracy. The example error is less than 2%, which can be effectively applied to the development of edge water gas reservoir.
