Bratsk gas condensate field oil production prospects

V.A. Vanin, S.A. Uryadov


The subsoil user enterprise, which conducts socially significant, but, for objective reasons, unprofitable gas and gas condensate production at a small field in the Irkutsk region, has the potential to become profitable by ensuring oil production. For this, there are quite certain prerequisites, the geological, technological and infrastructure aspects of which are disclosed in the article. An analysis of the available geological and geophysical data was carried out using information on analogous fields, geological constructions were performed, approaches to the separation of reef bodies at the Bratskoye field were proposed, which have their own characteristics, and technological principles for opening and development of the facility were recommended.
