On the base of combined finite element - difference method, we carried out computer modeling of the oil filtration processes in the vertically heterogeneous reservoirs. According to obtained data analysis, the efficiency of reservoir oil production process in the three phase vertically heterogeneous medium (water, oil, gas) mainly depends on reservoir oil filtration parameters distributions, oil penetrating reservoir border conditions and essentially on the oil-saturated concentration reservoir places localization. Intensity of the oil producing process is defined by the area of decreasing oil reservoir pressure in the vicinity of acting bottomhole. The larger this area the more intensive oil producing process goes. Therefore the effectiveness of oil producing process in vertically heterogeneous oil accommodating reservoirs directly depends on accuracy of the oil-saturated concentrated places localization and respective installation of the acting bottomhole.
