Paper Number: SPE-199929-MS
... characterize different FCDs under the steam-breakthrough condition, and accurately model the flashing in the near wellbore area associated with low-subcool operation. The extensive chocking in FCDs, far greater than initial design, in many cases is due to near-wellbore flashing. This work is a continuation of...

Paper Number: SPE-199938-MS
... Abstract Effective Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) operation relies on subcool management to reduce the risk of steam breakthrough. Monitoring of several parameters is performed to assure uniform development of steam chamber and heating of reservoir. This paper discusses the application...

... Smooth SAGD operation could be achieved if a uniform liquid level above the producer could be maintained along the producer. This will result in a uniform oil production from each segment of the well while preventing any steam breakthrough to the producer. As SAGD pay has various pay thickness...

... occurred. To better understand FCD behavior in SAGD operations, modeling of the different FCD designs has been attempted and has shown that steam breakthrough can be more effectively controlled utilizing devices that promote water flashing as fluids pass through them. With tools providing this type of...

... Figure 1b Steam breakthrough case shown. Without any flow control, steam flow can dominate in that zone. Based on a mass flow rate, passive ICDs can reduce rate from the steam flow. The fluidic diode AICD can reduce flow rate in the steam breakthrough zone by 35-40% when compared with an ICD...

... any efficiency gains in delivering steam to the reservoir makes the entire process more cost effective. Two significant challenges that impact the process efficiency are the occurrence of steam breakthrough along the lateral and steam non-conformance. Both of these issues are largely due to the...

... temperature 575°F (302°C), and more than adequate differential pressures associated with steam injection. Screens or slotted liners are run in hole to allow steam to be pumped in between the well pairs. Steam breakthrough, or diversion, has been experienced in numerous wells due to lost circulation, or sand...
