Abstract

The widespread application of multistage fracturing technology in Russia is already known not only due to increase of production rates and increase of recoverable reserves but also due to premature water flooding of some intervals. Several reasons could lead to that result, while, perhaps, the main one is a breakthrough in the aquifers in the process of the fracturing.

The objective of the job given by the client was to isolate water producing interval in a horizontal well completed with 8-stage MSF completion. To determine position of water-flooded zone coiled tubing production logging tool (PLT) was used. Based on CT logging data the 6th frac port of 8-stage MSF completion was found to be water flooded. Moreover, while total production rate of the well was equal to 500 m3/day with 95% WC, 68% of total production came from the 6th frac port.

This article includes a detailed study of the planning process, complex and unambiguous decision-making aimed at technical and practical challenges, risk assessment and methods to reduce them, the stages of the work, and planning in different situations that arise in the process of water shut-off and received lessons learned.
