Many oil fields in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States are in late-development stages, with waterflooding having being used for decades. A relatively new technology in production optimization is wave stimulation, in which the wellbore and reservoir are treated by acoustic, seismic, or other types of waves generated by tools. Approximately 250 wells have been treated in this manner, with a high success rate and significant oil-production increase. This paper discusses the potential of seismic and seismochemical well simulation in particular within the scope of this recent technology.

Introduction

Wave-stimulation technologies have short treatment times and can be applied in different types of formations and wells.
