Paper Title:
Optimal Orthogonal Design for Herringbone Wells Injection and Production Parameters of Steam Stimulation in Heavy Oil Reservoir
  Abstract

Herringbone wells can effectively increase the exposed area of oil layer, increase reservoir producing degree, and extend the steam swept volume, ultimately to enhance recovery. The result of steam stimulation depends on injection-production parameters. This paper studies the six injection-production parameters including steam quality, steam injection rate, steam injection pressure, soaking time, cyclic steam injection volume and the maximum lifting rate, and considers the interaction among steam quality, steam injection rate and steam injection pressure. Using visual analysis and variance analysis to analyze the test results, the optimal combination of injection-production parameters were obtained, and the various factors were sorted according to their impact on the cumulative oil steam ratio. Research shows that the impact of interaction is not significant. The results of orthogonal numerical test can provide a theoretical guidance for herringbone wells injection-production parameter analysis optimization of steam stimulation in the field, and also have some practical significance.
