16 16 Profiles and histories as obtained from analytical solution

17 17 Particle capture kinetics Permeability decline Inlet plugging at the transition time Deposition at core inlet Transition time 4 deep bed filtration parameters: λ – filtration coefficient β – formation damage coeficient α – critical porosity ratio k c – external cake formation

18 Injectivity Increase During Damage-Free Waterflooding During the particle-free water injection into a reservoir saturated by oil that is less mobile than water, the total mobility ratio increases M times due to displacement of less mobile fluid by more mobile one M=1 M=3 M=25 M=1 M=3 M=25 The increase happens during (1-5)10 -5 p.v.i. :

19 Combined Effect of Formation Damage and Mobility Variation on Injectivity Decline Mass balance for water (Buckley-Leverett) Darcys law for total oil-water flux Total oil-water mobility accounting for particle retention in swept zone Mass balance for suspended and retained particles Kinetics of particle retention

20 Impedance curve behaviour for M=1, 3 and 25 for high and low formation damage (curves 1,2,3 and 4,5,6 respectively); a)for time scale 0.01 p.v.i.; b) zoom for time scale p.v.i. The effect is particularly significant for heavy oil reservoirs and for relatively low formation damage If during the short initial waterflooding stage in a heavy oil reservoir the injectivity does not change, the reservoir suffers large formation damage which will cause a significant injectivity decrease

24 Injectivity damage characterization for history of wells

25 Probabilistic distributions for injectivity impairment parameters Well data Coreflood data

27 Conclusions Some injectivity index increase before the injectivity impairment is explained by displacement of more viscous oil by less viscous water from injector vicinity The analytical model for injectivity impairment accounts for particle deep bed filtration, external cake formation and for varying oil-water mobility during waterflood The analytical model allows determination of the injectivity impairment coefficients – filtration and formation damage coefficients, critical porosity fraction and cake permeability - from well injectivity decline curve The injectivity impairment coefficients as obtained from treatment of xxx injectors vary in the same intervals as that obtained from lab coreflood

28 Injector A7 data were treated. Prediction. Well fracturing was anticipated Acidification was anticipated in case of well A13. Reservoir B is similar to reservoir A. Well injectivity was predicted. Finally, it was recommended to drill 37 wells instead of 26 wells Horizontal injector N23 data have been treated, and penetration radius 1/ was found to be xxx cm. Acidification was planned based on this radius. It allows to economise xxx cu m of acid Vertical well N13 data have been treated, and penetration radius 1/ was found to be xxx cm. It allows recommending xxx cm depth of perforation instead of xx cm planned before
