Formation damage

The authors of this paper propose a new chemical treatment for efficient remediation of water- or hydrocarbon-phase-trapping damage in low-permeability porous media.
Laboratory formation damage testing is often used to help select optimal drilling and completion fluids, but predicting the overall effect of formation damage on well performance requires further interpretation. Paper SPE 199268 presents a case for use of CFD to upscale laboratory data to quantify that effect.
Laboratory studies performed for evaluation of filter cake breaker fluid exposed limitations with a conventional test approach.
