Study on Rational Well Spacing Optimization of Low Permeability Gas Reservoir


The Shanggu gas field is the low porosity and low permeability. Single well controlled reserves, economic limit well spacing and economic rational spacing through different methods are calculated. With the development experience of Su Lige gas field as guidance, the rational spacing of Shanggu gas reservoir is 700m×900m by calculating daily gas production rate and cumulative gas production with different well spacing using numerical simulation method.
