Abstract:

Owing to intricate geological and engineering factors, the hydraulic fractures in shale oil reservoirs sometimes are in heterogeneous and random lengths, which brings a difficulty in fracture estimation. To improve this situation, a simple and quick well-testing method is presented for fracturing evaluation and parameter estimation of multiple fractured horizontal wells with non-uniform fractures. The semianalytical method and Laplace transformation are used for model solution. With the proposed model, we estimate the properties of non-uniform fractures in shale oil wells from the Ordos Basin based on the buildup testing data. Results from the case studies show that there is a good relationship between fracturing treatment parameters and generated fracture properties, including fracture length and storativity ratio (or fracture volume ratio). The fracture parameter values increase with the increase in fracturing liquid volume, especially the inner region permeability and storativity ratio. When the fracturing liquid volume per stage increases by 200-300 m3, the fracture impacts are weaker on generated parameters, which indicates that there would be an optimized fracturing liquid volume in the field case.


Keywords:Shale oil, fracturing evaluation, well testing, non-uniform fracture.
