The rhombus inverted nine-spot well pattern is often adopted in low permeability oilfield development, which has the advantage of high oil production rate and flexible adjustment. Due to the strong heterogeneity of the low permeability reservoirs, the oil wells along the fracture direction are heavily water-flooded and the water cut rises quickly, and the oil wells on both sides of fractures have no response to water injection. Hence, deep profile control is an effective way to solve this kind

However, because of the asymmetry of the rhombus inverted nine-spot well pattern and the heterogeneity of the low permeability reservoirs, there are differences in the response characteristics of oil wells at different locations after deep profile control. In this paper, combined with physical experiments and numerical simulations, we analyzed oil increment, the distribution of streamlines and slugs of wells at different locations before and after deep profile control, and evaluated the response characteristics of oil wells of rhombus inverted nine-spot well pattern after deep profile control in low permeability fractured reservoirs. It is concluded that the effect of increasing oil production of the side wells is better than that of the angle wells after deep profile control, and the response sequence is side well, angle well in short axis, and angle well in long axis, which is also verified by the practical results of deep profile control in Daqing Oilfield.
