Abstract:

A study has been made of the flow behavior of fractured oil reservoirs produced by water displacement. A two-dimensional numerical model capable of simulating flow of water and oil in the matrix bocks as well as in the fractures has been developed. The validity of the model has been checked against data from a laboratory experiment involving a matrix-fracture system. Good agreement was observed between the laboratory and simulation results. By means of numerical simulation the effects of production rate and fracture flow capacity on the production history and ultimate oil recovery of a fractured system have been evaluated. Results are presented for a single matrix block system where the block is surrounded by horizontal and vertical fractures. Production rates ranging from 0.05 to 5 times the gravity reference rate of the matrix, and fracture flow capacities ranging from 0.1 to 10 times the flow capacity of the matrix are included in the investigation. At production rates much lower than the gravity reference rate, the system behaves essentially as a non-fractured reservoir. Is it also observed that for fracture flow capacities of the order of one-tenth of the matrix flow capacity, the effect of the fractures is negligible. ...
