Yuriy I. Steblev, Sergey V. Susarev, Alena Yu. Lapshina, Tat'yana Yu. Popova

One of the topical issues of drilling directional and horizontal wells with the use of downhole telemetry systems with an electromagnetic communication channel is the use of an electrical delimiter. It is part of the transmission system as a constructive basis for conducting electric and electromagnetic well logging while drilling. To solve this problem, it is necessary to evaluate the radial range of electrical probing near the well zone in order to determine the informativeness of the received data. A qualitative analysis of the structure of the probing electric field of the circuit and the calculation model of the logging is performed.

Tamara I. Mayorova, Natalja V. Popova

Prospecting new oil and gas deposits in Zuyatskoye field is promising due to its location near fields with oil and gas deposits in the Tula terrigenous and Vereiskian carbonate deposits. Volumetric method of the Tula and Vereiskian is used for hydrocarbon reserves calculation. Calculation of the hydrocarbon reserves were based on the contour maps of the top of pays of the Tula terrigenous and Vereiskian carbonate deposits, net oil maps, results of the production log tests in the pay zones and core analysis. Calculation parameters for the deposits were defined according to the core analysis results, well testing during drilling and casing formation tests, geology and geophysics well data and approved parameters from the adjacent ideal analogues.

Gas saturation of the non-traditional reservoir of the Lower Berezovskaya subformation of the north of the West Siberia, and its relation to the void mineral composition and structure

Danil B. Rodivilov, Pavel N. Kokarev, Vener G. Mamyashev

The oldest Cenomanian gas fields of the north of the West Siberia have a steady tendency of the production decline yet today. The Lower Berezovskaya subformation gas was ignored before, now it attracts attention of the producer companies more often. The collector of this subseries is a complex underexplored non-traditional object promising to support gas production. Its mineral composition and basic petrophysical properties have recently been studied actively, however, the issue of the gas saturation level is still open.Argillous gaizes represent the Lower Berezovskaya subformation reservoir. This work provides the first evaluation of the saturation in this reservoir based on the interpretation of the geophysical studies of wells and encapsulated core analysis. It also reveals and describes the connection between the mineral composition of the gaizes, the structure of the voids, and the gas saturation.

Lithological-capacitive models of voids of nano-reservoirs in the Lower Berzovskaya subseries in the north of the West Siberia

Yana O. Karymova

Reservoirs of the Lower Berezovskaya subseries are fine-grained gaizes argillic to a variable degree. The reservoirs are commonly believed to be non-traditional due to an uncharacteristic combination of high porosity (at an average of 32%) and low permeability (below 1?10-3 um2). primarily. As this work shows, this is explained by the fact that the main part of pores (up to 75%) of the rocks in question is of subcapillary sizes making fluid movement practically impossible. At that, rock lithology affects the voids structure significantly. Thus, reservoirs with different content of the amorphous silica have different effective gas-filled porosity. Quantitate evaluation of the part of the differently sized pores among the voids in common is a lithological-capacitive model of the voids structure allowing describing these differences and forecasting possible effective gas-filled porosity of the reservoirs in question.

Petroelastic model of oolitic limestone at the core scale

Mohammad F. Ghasemi, Irina O. Bayuk

The paper presents a technique for constructing a parametric petroelastic model of oolitic limestone on the core scale using the approaches of the Effective Medium Theory (Rock Physics), data on the microstructure of the rock, and the velocities of elastic waves in the rock. Parameters of the petroelastic model characterize the structure of the void space of the rock and include the shape of intergranular and oolitic pores, as well as the degree of connectivity of pores in the matrix and oolites. The results of petroelastic modeling justify the importance of taking into account the specific microstructure parameters of each particular rock for which this simulation is carried out.

Alexandra V. Kopteva, Vladimir Yu. Koptev

The article describes the problem of low efficiency of existing techniques for locating and measuring the thickness of paraffin, gums and salts deposits on the inner surface of the pipeline and submersible equipment that have been colloidally dissolved in the transported oil stream. A method based on radioisotope radiation with high efficiency, reliability, durability, ease of maintenance and easy interchangeability of the main components of the system is proposed for the control of deposits. The method allows to detect and measure the thickness of deposits in a non-contact way in a real time mode in a timely manner in order to make a further decision on choosing the most effective technique for their elimination.
