Formation Damage and Mitigation

The course is a discussion of formation damage mechanisms and the methods used for mitigation, including a good overview of matrix treatments, in sandstones and carbonates, and hydraulic fracturing in high permeability reservoirs. The alternative of perforating, instead of matrix treatment, is also discussed.
