Oil production from diatomite formations by fracture

Oil production from diatomite formations by fracture

Apr 26, 1994 Because the low permeability and high oil viscosity characteristics associated with heavy oil diatomite formations precludes the use of conventional steam stimulation or drive processes, the Rivas method of alternating short steaming and production cycles is effective in recovering hydrocarbons from low permeability formations such as a diatomite matrix.

Optimizing hydraulic fracture design in the diatomite

In Lost Hills, California, the diatomite formation requires hydraulic fracturing to allow oil recovery at profitable production rates. Because hydraulic fracturing is approximately two-thirds of the total well cost, it is imperative that fracturing investments more be optimized to

Aug 01, 2018 Results show that the seismic stimulation approach has been proven in carbonate, sandstone, and diatomite formations. The method is most effective in mature oil fields with a gasoil ratio of less than 2,000 scfbbl an API gravity higher than 13 , and that display a high degree of heterogeneity and bypassed oil.

June, 2017 OnePetro. ABSTRACT We developed a numerical model to simulate steam-water injection into fractured diatomite formations. To mitigate the high nonlinearity in both the EOS of the water substance and the behavior of a fracture-matrix system, our formulations are simplified from actual system behavior but preserves the most fundamental behaviors of the steam-water fracture-matrix

Flowback verses firstflush new information on the

It was found that the plug-flow conceptual model of flowback developed in shale formations, where salinity increases over time as produced water is extracted, was not appropriate for characterizing produced water from unconventional wells in these oil reservoirs, which are predominately diatomite and sandstones. In these formations stimulation ...

Cyclic Steam Stimulation an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Recently, cyclic steam stimulation has been applied to wells with multilateral horizontal legs. There are three phases in cyclic steam stimulation. First, high-temperature, high-pressure steam is injected for up to 1 month. Second, the formation is allowed to soak for 1 or 2 weeks to allow the heat to diffuse and lower the heavy oil viscosity.

US5411094A Imbibition process using a horizontal well

A method for enhanced oil recovery from a low permeability diatomaceous reservoir by imbibition is described. In this method, oil is displaced from the reservoir with a horizontal wellbore by a combination of applied fluid pressure, plus enhanced imbibition. Enhanced imbibition is accomplished by adding chemical additives, water, or brine to an injection fluid so that rock in the tight ...

Jan 28, 2020 In the Midway Sunset Oil Field in Central California, operators inject steam into the shallow diatomite formation to enhance heavy oil recovery through imbibition, wettability alteration, and viscosity reduction, among other mechanisms. The injected steam, however, does not always remain in the reservoir or return through the wells. In two zones in the study area, the steam comes out at the ...

Hydraulic Fracturing and Water Use in California

Jul 02, 2014 To stimulate production from these diatomite formations, relatively fewer fracture stages are often used, in contrast to the multistage fracturing along the comparatively long laterals used to stimulate natural gas or oil production from shale formations such as the Marcellus, Bakken, and Eagle Ford. ... As a result, stimulation of the ...

There is provided a method of extracting hydrocarbons from a diatomite ore. The particle size of the ore is first reduced to form a processed ore. The processed ore is then mixed with a substantially irregular granular material to form an unstratified ore mixture having increased permeability to an extracting solvent. The unstratified ore mixture is then permeated with an extracting solvent to ...

Diatomite reservoirs have a large concentration of oil per acre due to a high porosity, reservoir thickness and oil saturation. High viscosity at reservoir temperatures and 1-10 md permeability prevent the formation from being produced by conventional means, and operators have started producing by cyclic steam stimulation CSS.

A method for stimulating production from wells drilled into natural gas reservoirs characterized by lenticular deposits. The reservoir thickness through which the wells are drilled is divided into multi-stage zones that are further divided into single-stage zones. Each single-stage zone is perforated and then fractured. The fracturing is conducted in multiple stages to sequentially fracture ...
