Abstract

Tight reservoirs hold a vast natural gas in Ordos Basin, and efficient development of these resources can offset the energy shortage. Due to the low-porosity and low-permeability, hydraulic fracturing becomes necessary to tap its resources. After fracturing, a large amount of fracturing fluid fills pore space near hydraulic fracture, which will influence the gas production. This study focused on the water occurrence of tight gas reservoirs and its influencing factors. Samples were selected from Upper Paleozoic Taiyuan and Shihezi Formations from Ordos Basin. The main experiments include porosity, permeability, mineral composition, nitrogen adsorption (NA), mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), high-speed centrifugation, and so on. The water occurrence was divided into movable water saturation (Smov) and irreducible water saturation (Sirr). Further, the irreducible water saturation was divided into water saturation controlled by capillary force (Sirrc) and water saturation in big pores controlled by small throat (Sirrl). In both Formations, the irreducible water saturation has a negative relationship with porosity, permeability, and average pore diameter, and a positive relationship with specific surface area. The Sirrl has a positive relationship with the median pore-throat diameter in Taiyuan Formation, but the Sirrl has a weak relationship with the median pore-throat diameter in Shihezi Formation. The Sirrc has a negative relationship with porosity, permeability, and average pore diameter, and a positive relationship with specific surface area in Taiyuan Formation, but the Sirrc has a weak relationship with these parameters in Shihezi Formation.
