Abstract


The paper considers analytical dependencies to determine the radius of the steam chamber that is formed in the oil zone following injection of heat carrier into in a high-viscosity reservoir with underlying contact water zone. Analysis of the analytical dependencies showed that the radius of the steam chamber in the oil zone resulting from injection of hot water into the underlying contact water zone below the WOC is 1.24 times the radius of the steam chamber resulting from hot water injection directly into the oil zone. It was found that when steam is used as a heat carrier, the steam chambers’ sizes are comparable regardless of whether the steam is injected directly into the oil zone, or into the underlying contact water zone. It was further found that the ratio of the steam chamber radius resulting from the steam injection to that resulting from the hot water injection varies from 9.9 to 13.4 depending on the injection zone. In case the heat carrier is injected into the oil zone, the steam chamber growth is only determined by the duration of injection, i.e. the stem chamber radius is increased with time. In case hot water is injected both in the oil zone and into the underlying contact water zone, the steam chamber is 1.1 times the steam chamber developed from injection of hot water in the oil zone alone. In case hot water is injected both in the oil zone and into the underlying contact water zone, the steam chamber is 3.5 times the steam chamber developed from injection of hot water in the underlying contact water zone alone.

Key words:

high-viscosity reservoir, oil zone, underlying water zone, heat carrier, hot water, steam, steam chamber, radius of steam chamber
