Oil fields located in salt lake fault basins, affected both by the faults and rock salt, have their unique geological features. As wellas Certain production characteristics and special problems in the development by water flooding. The disadvantages are salt and gypsum precipitation and serious corrosion, and the advantages are the good conformance in reversed cyclothem oil reservoir and high oil displacement efficiency of the salt water. Thus it is obviously favorable to develop oil reservoirs with steep structure with high salt content by peripheral water injection. Good results have been made in Jianghan oil region by giving reasonable development and scientific management according to the geological features of such oilfields.
