"Simultaneous water and gas" (SWAG) injection is the effective method of enhanced oil recovery. However, until recently the effect of SWAG in the development of heavy oil fields has been studied insufficiently. In the present study laboratory researches have confirmed that SWAG injection when 25% gas content in the mixture significantly increases the displacement efficiency of heavy oil with the viscosity 217 mPa*s of Russkoye deposit, compared with water flooding. It has allowed extending the effective application of SWAG as a non-thermal method of enhanced oil recovery more than twice. According to the results of laboratory experiments to pre-extracted and not extracted core material, it was found that the degree of hydrophobic pore surface, which depends on the adsorption of polar components of oil, significantly affect the oil displacement efficiency when SWAG implementing. It was established that SWAG at the optimum gas content is effective for both hydrophilic and hydrophobic environments. The values of the heavy oil displacement efficiency for the hydrophilic core material of Russkoye field are about 1.8 times higher than for hydrophobic. The technology for SWAG injection from the use of mono-block multistage pump-ejecting systems has been developed. The technology can significantly improve the systems efficiency and the process of water-gas mixtures delivering into injection wells. The obtained results allow creating non-thermal energy-efficient methods for developing and improving oil recovery of heavy oil fields.
It is shown that the primary cause of inefficient operation of multiphase pump-ejector systems installed in oil fields for combined oil and gas gathering is that not only associated (casing-head) gas, but also oil recovered incidentally with water enters the receiving chambers of jet apparatuses. Even under the current operation conditions, the power consumption at BPS-0122 Sofinskaya booster-type pumping plant can be reduced more than twofold by utilizing the existing infrastructure to the maximum and optimizing the flow diagrams of the pump-ejector system where the functions of submersible centrifugal pumps and jet apparatuses are separated. In future development, the pump-ejector system could be provided with an additional ejector, which will allow effective integration of straight-flow and circulatory schemes.
Oil production with submersible jet pump's installations can successfully solve many problems of well's operation in the complicated conditions. However, this technology, unfortunately, is not widely used in Russia. The purpose of this work is the study and improving of the oil production technology with jet pumps, and developing of recommendations for its effective application. The analysis of the field experience of implementation has shown that, despite the achievements, the effectiveness of the known systems of oil jet pumps production is currently low. To solve this problem, various methods have been developed. A new technology has been suggested to use surface jet pumps for pumping out gas from the annulus and directing it with water into the injection wells. This technology is designed to increase oil production by reducing the annulus pressure and enhance oil recovery by SWAG injection.
