Gdanski  developed a practical model for wormholing during matrix acidizing in carbonates, which shows that practical limits for effective penetration of hydrochloric HCl acid varies from about 1 to 5 ft. Removal of severe plugging in carbonate or sandstone can result in very large increases in well productivity. Later injected fracturing fluid tend to leak off into the wormholes rather than lengthening the desired fracture.
Permeability improvement in gas wells is typically better than oil wells. Treatment design and planning are often performed to ensure that the acid is placed across the entire interval.
Matrix acidizing is applied primarily to remove damage caused by drilling, completion, and workover fluids and solids precipitated from produced water or oil i. Acidizing is used to either stimulate a well to improve flow or to remove damage.
Please post helpful feedback. To include a comma in your tag, surround the tag with double quotes. This single location in Australian Capital Territory: Basically, there are two types of acid treatments that are related to injection rates and pressures.
Public Private login e. Did you find what you were looking for? Either mechanical or chemical placement techniques can be used to improve contact of the acid solution with the interval. A matrix treatment restores permeability by removing damage around the wellbore, thus improving productivity in both sandstone and carbonate wells.
Fracture acid stimulation is usually carried out on carbonate reservoirs, which have lower permeability than sandstone reservoirs. Matrix acid stimulation is pumped into the formation at or below the fracturing pressure. In order to set up a list of libraries that you fundametals access to, you must first login or sign up.
It can be used to either remove formation damage or stimulate undamaged formations to produce conductive aciduzing within the fracture where oil and gas can migrate. Advances in Matrix Stimulation Technology.

This single location in New South Wales: In the absence of damage, the large volume of acid that is required to improve the formation permeability in the vicinity of the wellbore may not justify the small incremental increase in production, especially in sandstone.

Author Williams, Bert B. Penetration is limited by injection rate and volume.
CaF 2 and AlF 3 can also precipitate in the spent acid. Evaluation of acid treatments. During matrix acidizing the acids dissolve the sediments and mud solids within the pores that are inhibiting the permeability of the rock.
When there is no damage present, improper or poorly executed acid treatments can reduce the natural formation permeability and reduce well productivity, as in new wells with low reservoir permeability.

May not be open to the public ; BROC In sandstone matrix acidizing, the primary purpose is to remove acid-soluble damage in the well and near wellbore area. Acidizing is used to either stimulate a well to greater than ideal matrix reservoir flow or to remove damage. Set up My libraries How do I set up “My libraries”?
HF, or more usually HF-releasing chemicals such as ammonium bifluoride NH 4 HF 2is used for sandstone matrix acidizing, combined with hydrochloric HCl or organic acids. The successful acid placement in matrix treatments of open-hole horizontal wells is even more difficult due to the length of zone and potential variation of the formation properties.

They occur mostly if the well is shut-in for a long period of time. Tags What are tags? Skip to content Skip to search. You also may like to try some of these bookshopswhich may or may not sell this item. None of your libraries hold this item.
In sandstone acidizing, one has to be particularly careful of reprecipitation of reaction products, which could cause new formation damage [ 7 ]. Matrix acidizing refers to one of two stimulation processes in which acid is injected into the well penetrating the rock pores at pressures below fracture pressure.
Treating an undamaged sandstone well with matrix acids does not usually lead stimulation unless the reservoir is naturally fractured.
