This article is devoted to the study of geomechanic and porosity clays properties influence on the processes of pressure redistribution and fluid filtration in the well drainage area, and as a result, on well productivity. Comparison of the calculation results showed a significant effect of clay interlayers in the reservoir section on the performance and productivity of the well.
Materials and methods
The study was carried out by creating synthetic hydrodynamic models with a different number of clay interlayers in the section of the productive formation, while maintaining the volume ratio between sandstone and clay in the ratio of 50:50. The Arps and Fetkovich methods were used to analyze decline curve anaysis production and calculate predicted values of cumulative production in the area of well drainage, assess and compare the rate of change in fluid production in wells.
