  • Repressuring — is the method by which the pressure inside a crude oil well is increased so as to increase the output of the well. Pumping crude oil from an reservoir causes its pressure to drop, which further reduces pumpability. Returning the natural gas or… …   Wikipedia

  • Reservoir repressuring —   The injection of a pressurized fluid (such as air, gas, or water) into oil and gas reservoir formations to effect greater ultimate recovery.   U.S. Dept. of Energy, Energy Information Administration s Energy Glossary …   Energy terms

  • Gas reinjection — is the reinjection of natural gas into an underground reservoir, typically one already containing both natural gas and crude oil, in order to increase the pressure within the reservoir and thus induce the flow of crude oil or else sequester gas… …   Wikipedia

  • Поддержание пластового давления —         (a. maintenance of reservoir pressure, repressuring; н. Lagerdruckunterhaltung; ф. maintien de la pression de gisement; и. mantenimiento de presion en las capas) процесс естественного или искусственного сохранения давления в продуктивных… …   Геологическая энциклопедия

  • Поддержание пластового давления ППД — ► pressure maintenance, reservoir repressuring Процесс естественного или искусственного сохранения давления в продуктивных пластах нефтяных залежей на начальной или запроектированной величине с целью достижения высоких темпов добычи нефти и… …   Нефтегазовая микроэнциклопедия

  • Ohio Oil Rush — Cygnet, Ohio, in Wood County was a booming oil town with 13 saloons and many workers when this photo was taken in 1885. The Ohio oil rush was a 19th century petroleum boom in the southeast Ohio, United States. The boom started in 1860 in… …   Wikipedia

  • Dry natural gas production —   The process of producing consumer grade natural gas. Natural gas withdrawn from reservoirs is reduced by volumes used at the production (lease) site and by processing losses. Volumes used at the production site include (1) the volume returned… …   Energy terms

  • Marketed production —   Gross withdrawals less gas used for repressuring, quantities vented and flared, and nonhydrocarbon gases removed in treating or processing operations. Includes all quantities of gas used in field and processing plant operations.   U.S. Dept. of …   Energy terms

  • Natural gas marketed production —   Gross withdrawals of natural gas from production reservoirs, less gas used for reservoir repressuring, nonhydrocarbon gases removed in treating and processing operations, and quantities vented and flared.   U.S. Dept. of Energy, Energy… …   Energy terms

  • Natural Gas Used for Injection —   Natural gas used to pressurize crude oil reservoirs in an attempt to increase oil recovery or in instances where there is no market for the natural gas. Natural gas used for injection is sometimes referred to as repressuring.   U.S. Dept. of… …   Energy terms
