Physical modeling of deformation and filtration processes in low-permeability reservoir rocks when implementing the directional unloading method
Ishlinsky Institute for Problems in Mechanics of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow
This article describes the results of physical modeling of deformation and filtration processes in low-permeability reservoir rocks of the Achimov deposits of the Urengoy gas condensate field. The experiments were carried out on a unique true Triaxial Independent Loading Test System (TILTS) of the Institute for Problems in Mechanics of the Russian Academy of Sciences. The effect of the non-uniform triaxial stress state on the character of deformation and filtration processes in rocks was studied. Real stresses that occur in the bottomhole formation zone when the pressure in the well decreases were created in the rock specimens. Experiments were carried out to simulate the stress state at the walls of the open hole and at the tip of the perforation hole. The geomechanical approach is shown to be promising for creating ways to improve the quality of wells; in particular, the adaptation of the directional unloading method for the conditions of a given reservoir is considered. These studies are essential both in fundamental scientific and practical terms to substantiate technological solutions in the development of fields with low-permeability reservoirs.
