Acid Stimulation Techniques
The course, designed by Dr. Dan Hill, discusses Formation Damage and its effect on well performance and project economics and Acid stimulation treatments. After focusing the causes of formation damage during the drilling, cementing, perforating, producing and working over wells, and how these may be identified, the course overviews matrix and fracture acidizing applications with in-depth discussions of oilfield acids, acid reactions, additives, acidizing techniques and job designs.
