The authors describe a carbonate reservoir stimulation technique able to deploy acids in the rock far away from the wellbore through mechanically drilled holes with known depths and azimuths.
Hydrochloric acid continues to be the most effective and low-cost material for carbonate stimulation. Though exotic chemistries such as chelating agents and organic acids have been promoted for being less corrosive at high temperatures, the cost and dissolving capacity limit their use to large-scale implementation. The ability to inhibit the corrosion tendency of hydr…
The paper presents a case study of fracture interaction mitigation in a multistage horizontal stimulation of an offshore Black Sea well.
