Default Which mortar to repair chimney?

Do I need a special kind of mortar for this repair? I have an oil furnace and where the flue goes into the chimney, it's no longer intact. Any special procedure to fixing it other than just getting it in there?

Thanks

I can't answer the question but be aware that that system is not the best and the chimney should now have a liner installed.
