Based on the analysis of seepage mechanism of fracturing wells in low permeability reservoir, this paper establishes the capacity model of the vertical fractured well production under the factors of Start-up pressure gradient, pressure sensitive effect and the artificial fracture length. The numerical simulation is compiled and software calculates the capacity model by using numerical simulation. This simulation technique verifies the validity of the model and numerical method. On this basis, we study the influence of the included angle of artificial fracture and well array direction, artificial fracture length, start-up pressure gradient and production pressure difference to the capacity of the oil well.

Keywords: low permeability reservoirs, the capacity equation of the vertical fractured well, fracture length, start-up pressure gradient, well array direction.
