Book Description :

The production of conventional and unconventional hydrocarbons can be affected by several sources of damage under subsurface conditions that can hinder well productivity. Damage may occur during different stages of oil and/or gas well formation such as production, drilling, hydraulic fracturing, and workover operations.For years, formation damage was considered negligible or was not treated adequately, causing reductions in the production rate up to the loss of both producer and injector wells. Nowadays, formation damage is an essential parameter to be considered in the wells' development as its prevention and/or engineered remediation may lead to cost reduction and improvement of production rate. Formation damage is challenging in the oil and gas industry, as it implies a large number of mechanisms that can be involved. Different fields feature problems associated with fines migration, asphaltene precipitation/deposition, inorganic scales, condensate banking, and damage during hydraulic fracturing operations, among others.Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing technology with potential applications and benefits. Among the numerous applications of nanotechnology for energy and the environment, the nanoparticle technology could be successfully employed as an attractive alternative in the oil and gas industry for the inhibition and remediation of different types of formation damage with cost-effective and environmentally friendly approaches. Due to their exceptional physicochemical properties such as high dispersibility, high surface area/volume ratio and small size (1-100 nm), nanoparticles are able to inject into the reservoir, travel smoothly through the porous media and selectively attack a specific type of formation damage. Also, at the nanoscale, other exceptional properties can be obtained, such as high thermal stability and chemical stability, as well as optically, magnetically, and electrically tunable properties.This book provides recent research on nanotechnology applied to the inhibition/remediation of formation damage in oil and gas reservoirs. The chapters include methodologies for multi-component skin characterization, estimating the level of risk of formation damage, nanoparticle fabrication methods, as well as the application of nanoparticles and nanofluids at both laboratory and field conditions. This book should generate a better landscape about the use of nanoparticles and nanofluids in the improvement of inhibition and treatment of formation damage, and its application in local and international scenarios.

Book Description :

The primary aim of this project is to develop a practical method in creating skin damage on an unconsolidated core sample and measure how the damage created is capable of reducing the overall permeability of the core. The effects of permeability reduction on production rates and overall recovery factors of the unconsolidated sand pack will be evaluated during the experimental trials. An unconsolidated sand pack was used throughout the experimental process because most Canadian reservoirs are made up of unconsolidated sands. This experiment was performed to reflect a real life scenario of the overall effects of skin damage on production rates and recovery mechanism in Canadian reservoirs and other unconsolidated sand reservoirs around the world.

Book Description :

Tight gas reservoirs have very low permeability and porosity, which cannot be produced at economical flow rates unless the well is efficiently stimulated and completed using advanced and optimized technologies. Economical production on the basis of tight gas reservoirs is challenging in general, not only due to their very low permeability but also to several different forms of formation damage that can occur during drilling, completion, stimulation, and production operations. This study demonstrates in detail the effects of different well and reservoir static and dynamic parameters that influence damage mechanisms and well productivity in tight gas reservoirs. Geomechanics, petrophysics, production and reservoir engineering expertise for reservoir characterization is combined with a reservoir simulation approach and core analysis experiments to understand the optimum strategy for tight gas development, delivering improved well productivity and gas recovery.

Book Description :

Formation damage is a common problem in petroleum reservoirs and happens in different stages of reservoir development from drilling to production. The causes of formation damage include particle invasion, formation fines migration, chemical precipitation, and pore deformation or collapse. Formation damage adversely affects productivity of wells by reducing the permeability of near wellbore region. Furthermore, formation damage also affects well logging results. Therefore, understanding the mechanism of formation damage is vital to predict the extent and severity of formation damage and to control it. This thesis is focused on the study of formation damage caused by external particle invasion. A simplified numerical method based on a commercial code PFC (Particle Flow Code) is proposed to simulate the particle invasion process. The fluid-particle interaction is simplified as hydrodynamic drag forces acted on particles by fluids; the particle-grain interaction is modeled as two rigid balls on contact. Furthermore, an pore network flow model is developed in this study to estimate permeability of damaged formations, which contain two well-separated particle sizes. The effects of the particle size and the initial formation porosity on formation damage are studied in detail. Our study shows that big particles tend to occupy the formation face, while small particles invade deep into the formation. Moreover, particles which are smaller than pore throats (entrances) impair permeability more than those bigger than pore throats. Our study also indicates that a higher initial formation porosity results in more particle invasion and permeability impairment. It is suggested that, in order to reduce formation damage, mud particle size distributions should be carefully selected according to given formation properties. Although our model has some limitations, it may serve as a tool to predict formation damage according to given parameters, and to understand the mechanism of formation damage from a micro-scopic point of view.

Book Description :

Good engineers never stop looking for opportunities to improve the performance of their production systems. Performance enhancement methods are always carefully examined, and production data is analyzed in order to identify determining factors affecting performance. The two main activities of the production engineer in the petroleum and related industries are reservoir stimulation and artificial lift. The classic solution to maximizing a well's productivity is to stimulate it. The basis for selecting stimulation candidates should be a review of the well's actual and theoretical IPR. Low permeability wells often need fracturing on initial completion. In low permeability zones, additional post stimulation production can be significant to the economics, however, the production engineer needs to make management aware of the true long term potential or else overly optimistic projections can easily be made. The main purpose of stimulation is to enhance the property value by the faster delivery of the petroleum fluid and/or to increase ultimate economic recovery. The aim of reservoir stimulation is to bypass near-wellbore damage and return a well to its "natural" productivity/injectivity, to extend a conductive path deep into a formation and thus increase productivity beyond the natural level and to produce hydrocarbon from tight formation. The importance of reservoir stimulation is increasing due to following reasons: Hydrocarbon fields in their mid-life Production in these fields are in declining trend The thrust area: Enhancement of production Hence, to improve productivity of the well matrix stimulation and hydraulic fracturing are intended to remedy, or even improve, the natural connection of the wellbore with the reservoir, which could delay the need for artificial lift. This book presents procedures taken in the oil and gas industry for identifying well problems, and it suggests means of solving problems with the help of the Coil Tube unit which is used for improving well productivity and techniques like Acidizing and Hydraulic Fracturing.

Book Description :

Once a natural gas or oil well is drilled, and it has been verified that commercially viable, it must be "completed" to allow for the flow of petroleum or natural gas out of the formation and up to the surface. This process includes: casing, pressure and temperature evaluation, and the proper instillation of equipment to ensure an efficient flow out of the well. In recent years, these processes have been greatly enhanced by new technologies. Advanced Well Completion Engineering summarizes and explains these advances while providing expert advice for deploying these new breakthrough engineering systems. The book has two themes: one, the idea of preventing damage, and preventing formation from drilling into an oil formation to putting the well introduction stage; and two, the utilization of nodal system analysis method, which optimizes the pressure distribution from reservoir to well head, and plays the sensitivity analysis to design the tubing diameters first and then the production casing size, so as to achieve whole system optimization. With this book, drilling and production engineers should be able to improve operational efficiency by applying the latest state of the art technology in all facets of well completion during development drilling-completion and work over operations. One of the only books devoted to the key technologies for all major aspects of advanced well completion activities. Unique coverage of all aspects of well completion activities based on 25 years in the exploration, production and completion industry. Matchless in-depth technical advice for achieving operational excellence with advance solutions.
