Acidizing Sandstones and Carbonates

To introduce the basic principles of matrix acidizing treatments in sandstones and carbonates, provide information on candidate selection for matrix treatments, and understand the importance of formation properties in the design of the treatment and fluid selection.

The chemistry of acidizing is discussed with emphasis on potential damage due to by-products precipitation. Formation damage is discussed and their mechanisms are identified. Post-treatment production improvement is estimated. Rules for Treatment Design are applied and Operational Procedures are recommended.
