Abstract:

The Impact of effective pressure modification on the filtration-volumetric characteristics of productive reservoir rocks in the simulation of real thermodynamic conditions in the reservoir has been searched. The research has revealed that an increase in the effective pressure of 0 MPa to reservoir conditions — 37.1 MPa porosity decreases by 3-10%, and permeability decreases up to 95% for selected samples. With the increase in the clay fraction content in the core samples, the influence of the effective pressure on the porosity and permeability is more pronounced. The deformations resulting from cyclical changes in effective pressure of 10 MPa, are irreversible, and negatively affect the properties of the reservoir rock. It is reflected in the profitability of the development of productive formation. Such fluctuations are caused by intense drawdown during field development thereby reducing reservoir pressure and increases the pressure on the mineral skeleton rock recovery reservoir pressure during the commissioning of forcing wells not to restore reservoir properties to the previous level. Any further effective pressure fluctuation reduces reservoir properties.
