  8. (When) drilling a well, much attention should be paid to the choice of a bit.


IV. Read the text and give the main idea of it:

When the drill bit strikes oil, the pressure of the drilling mud is usually strong enough to control any initial flow. the fountains of petroleum spouting from the well and called "gushers" are undesirable and danerous. Every effort is made to prevent them by installing heavy-control fittings directly under the derrick floor.

In oil country this installation is called a "Christmas Tree" because of its many branch-like fittings. It controls the flow of oil and natural gas from the moment the well starts producing.

But before a well can begin to produce, it must be completed. First the drill pipe and bit are removed. Cementing operations then set the final lengths of casing. Next a special instrument like a gun is lowered into the well. This perforating gun fires bullet-like charges through the casing into the producing formation to open up passages through which oil and gas can flow. Tubing then goes down inside the casing, and the oil and natural gas flow through this to the surface.

When the oil and gas reach the surface, they are separated and the gas is sent to a gas processing plant. Water and sediment are removed from the oil and the oil is then shipped to a refinery.

The life of a producing well begins with the first barrel of oil brought to the surface. It ends when the well is abandoned as uneconomical because the cost of producing the oil is greater than the price received for it.

The recovery of oil is basically a displacement process. Oil does not have the ability to expel itself from the reservoir, but must be moved from the rock formation to the well bore by a displacing agent. Fortunately, oil has two natural displacement agents that usually occur with it – gas and water.

Flush production is usually the first-stage in a well's life, though not always. This occurs when the drill taps an oil-bearing formation that has enough natural pressure to enable the petroleum to flow by itself. With variations, these types of "drives" can generate this force.

(1) Gas Cap Drive. Often there is a considerable cap of gas trapped above the oil in a formation. When the rock is penetrated, this gas expands and exerts enough pressure on the oil to move it toward the well bore leading to the surface.

(2) Dissolved Gas Drive. This is similar to a gas cap drive. In some oil accumulations the gas does not form a cap but remains dissolved in the oil. When the formation is opened, the gas expands and drives the mixture to the surface.

(3) Water Drive. In many oil reservoirs water is present beneath the oil. In formations thousands of feet deep, the gas, oil and water exist under great


pressure. When a drill opens the reservoir, the resulting release of pressure enables the underlying water to drive the oil to the well bore and, in some cases, upward to the surface. As the natural water pressure in the reservoir is reduced by oil production, water from the surrounding porous rock tends to flow into the reduced pressure zones. In the process, the water displaces the oil and drives it toward, the well bore.
V. Read and remember the following words, and word combinations:

"flush" well - фонтанирующая скважина

stripper period (marginal production) - период истощения скважины; малодебитный период (режим)

gas cap drive – режим газовой шапки

dissolved gas drive – режим растворенного газа

water drive - водонапорный режим пласта

pressure release – снижение давления

to tap / to strike - вскрывать пласт

to spout – фонтанировать, выбрасывать

gusher – фонтанирование, выброс

trap - ловушка

to abandon a well – ликвидировать скважину

displacement – вытеснение

to expand – расширяться

to taper off – зд. Снижать(ся), уменьшать(ся)

production rate— дебит, нефтеотдача
