The Chang 61 reservoir was the main oil-bearing beds in the study area of Ganguyi Oilfield in Ordos Basin. The exploration and development practice showed that the reservoir characteristics had strong heterogeneity in three-dimensional space, and the vertical and horizontal distribution of the reservoirs were complex, which directly restrictsed the subsequent rolling exploration and development. In the study, based on the core observations and logging data, and combined with analytical testing, the controlling effect of the reservoir macroscopic heterogeneity on the oil layer distribution was systematically and visually analyzed. The complexity of the Chang 61 reservoir in the study area was caused by a variety of factors. Among them, the distribution of the sedimentary microfacies and diagenetic facies directly controlled that of the high quality reservoirs. And the interlayer heterogeneity, especially the interlayer permeability, was easy to cause the selective filling of oil, while the interlayer heterogeneity directly caused the heterogeneous distribution of oil in composite sand body. Through this study, the distribution law of ultra-low permeability and ultra-low permeability reservoirs in Ordos Basin could be better understood intuitively, which provides guidance for finding favorable zones in the future.

Key words: extra-low permeability reservoir, reservoir heterogeneity, distribution of oil layer, Ganguyi Oilfield
