Synopsis

Optimization of flooding - is a package of technological solutions, which includes analysis of operation of injection and production wells,."performance" of the flood front in combination with the analysis of geological view of fromation and remaining recoverable reserves.

Accurate choice and optimization of technologies of flooding defines the success of the effective development of fields.

In spite of to the state of knowledge of this process, its importance in oil extractio, makes its developers to pay more efforts for better understanding of pecularities of the flooding and improvement of the efficiency of the process. One of the issues, which require more detailed study, is forming of man-induced unsteady fracttures (auto-fracturing) during injection wells operation and their influence on the efficiency of the displacement processes.
