We're paid ultimately as artificial lift professionals to produce oil and gas from oil wells and, more particularly for those of us in the water management side of things,  to continually improve the economics of oil production from wells by the prevention of water coning and by lessening the production to the surface of undesired formation water.

SOME BACKGROUND OF PROBLEMS IN THIS REGARD

There has been continuing effort in the petroleum industry to improve the economics of oil production by reducing the lifting costs or cost to the pump produced liquids from downhole to the surface of the earth. Normally, in a producing oil well there is formation water associated with the oil. The production interval typically has in it an oil/water interface. This interface is caused by the gravity separation in the earth formation over geologic time of the lighter oil rising above the formation water. A pressure equilibrium is established across this interface. When a well bore intercepts this producing interval the pressure equilibrium is disturbed. If production perforations are established initially in the oil containing portion of the formation and pressure in the well bore reduced below formation pressure, then oil will flow through the casing perforations into the wellbore where it can be pumped to the surface via any type of desired pump such as a surface powered sucker rod pump or by a submersible electric pump lowered on a tubing string into the production zone.

If the flow rate of fluid from the production zone into the wellbore is too rapid then the effect known as water coning can occur. Water from below the oil portion of the producing zone or formation can rush into the near hole voids created by the too rapid intake of oil through the perforations into the wellbore. The oil/water interface in the production zone is "sucked up" into a completely water bearing cone shaped region near the production perforations and can greatly increase the "water cut" of the produced fluids. It can even "water cut" the oil production completely when there is still a large amount of oil left in the production zone.

Of course, this undesirable coning effect can be avoided by reducing production rates through the perforations in the oil producing zone, but it may be desired even necessary to produce the oil faster. On the other hand, by use of the methods and apparatus of the present invention this undesirable effect can be avoided while simultaneously reducing lifting costs for produced oil from the well, overall.

If produced water is pumped to the surface, then lifting costs are increased. To date efforts to reduce lifting costs in such cases have centered around methods to seal off water producing layers. This is typically done with mechanical devices, such as packers, placed between oil producing perforations and water producing perforations. The location of such perforations may not always be known with precision, however. Also "squeeze cementing" where cement is pumped into the casing-borehole annulus or the formation itself through perforations between the oil producing and water producing zones has been attempted. Again a precise knowledge of the location of the formation oil-water interface is necessary to accomplish this successfully. If this location is not known with precision the squeeze cementing operation can be unsuccessful. While water "coning" has been discussed, it will be understood that this mechanism could be used to control other types of water cut problems such as channeling, fingering or cement wash cut, etc.

Here's a different approach to these problems. Regardless of the water production, use special tools wherein produced oil and water are separated downhole using the casing-production tubing annulus as a gravity separator. The separated oil, and only a small portion of produced water, is pumped to the surface by a first electric submersible pump. A second electric submersible pump, powered by the same electric motor, pumps separated produced water through a set of injection perforations below a production packer set in the casing below the production perforations. Thus, the separated water can be returned to the producing formation enabling it to assist in maintaining formation pressure equilibrium during production or disposed of into another separate reservoir.
Lease costs which are directly associated with the volume of total fluid lifted and handled from a producing well are substantially reduced. A reduction in the volume of fluid lifted and handled from the well also results in a lowering of horsepower required to operate the well since only oil, and a small fraction of produced water, are actually lifted to the surface. Similarly, water injection costs, water treating costs, spill containment and cleanup costs are substantially reduced by use of the present invention.

This would also have application with respect to water flooding deeper producing zones in more mature fields. This can be accomplished by the use of production water from shallower zones in the well being injected through former production perforations in the deeper zone desired to be water flooded. This can reduce costs in the drilling of injection wells. It can also affect the location and number of oil wells, injection facility size, reservoir size, pipeline location, and other factors. Small scale floods or pattern reconfiguration would be OK, due to the utility of a single wellbore, and reducing the costs of surface facilities needed.

The above and other features and advantages of the present invention will be best understood by reference to the following detailed description thereof taken in conjunction with the appended drawings. These descriptions and drawings are intended as illustrative of the invention, and not as limitative.

Electric submersible pump potheads are male electrical connectors used in oil wells. After connecting a pothead with submersible pump electrical cable, the cable conductors and the pothead pins or contacts must be electrically tested. The tests may be conducted under laboratory conditions; however, it is often necessary to test the connection at the field site. Various tests are usually conducted, including an insulation resistance test, a DC voltage test to measure microamp leakage and an AC voltage test to measure milliamp leakage.

Some potheads have metallic faces from which the contacts extend. When the conductors and contacts are electrically tested, flashover may occur between the contacts and the pothead face if the contacts are not insulated.

Typically, to insulate the contacts, a silicon test fixture is filled with clean, highly insulating dielectric silicon oil. The pothead is submersed within the filled fixture before electrically testing the connection between the contacts and conduit cable. Although this method works adequately in a laboratory setting, problems arise, such as damage to the pothead cable due to bending, when performing the tests in the field under much more adverse conditions.

Some pothead faces are molded from rubber, thereby eliminating the need to submerse the pothead in the silicon fixture during testing. However, these potheads are limited to a single use. They cannot be reused after being submersed in an oil well, even if submersed for only one day, because of oil swell to the rubber.
