Paper Title:
A Study on Effect Evaluating and Parameters Sensitivity Analyzing of Superheated Steam Soak in Heavy Oil Reservoirs
  Abstract

By using the technology of numerical reservoir simulation, we have compared superheated steam soak with saturated steam soak in area of heating, effect of distillation, capability of increasing oil production, volume of steam in need to evaluate the effect of superheated steam soak in heavy oil reservoirs. Analyzed the sensitivity of parameters like steam injection intensity, steam injection rate, soak time, degree of superheat to conclude the rule that they affect on recovery percentage. The research shows that, heating radius of superheated steam is greater than that of saturated steam, distillation effect of superheated steam is better than that of saturated steam, oil production of superheated steam is more than that of saturated steam, steam volume in need of superheated steam is less than that of saturated steam. Recovery percentage of superheated steam soak increases but more and more slowly with the increase in steam injection intensity, increases first and then decreases with the increase in steam injection rate, increases first and then decreases with the increase in soak time, increases but more and more slowly with the increase in degree of superheat. Influence of steam injection intensity is obvious to recovery percentage, but influence of other factors like soak time, steam injection rate, degree of superheat is insignificant.
