Matrix Stimulation Engineering

The 5-day workshop consist of lectures and work sessions directed at improved treatment success and well performance. You will be brought up to date on the latest chemical, mechanical and software technology.  Each lecture will discuss state-of-the-art technology with emphasis on field applications and case histories followed by a work session to emphasize the “every-day” practical application of the technology.  During the workshop you will learn how to select good Matrix candidates, characterize the damage, optimize a treatment, evaluate treatment economics, provide QC, evaluate real-time skin evolution, and perform post-treatment evaluation. Students are encouraged to bring information on a well they are interested in evaluating.

Learning activity mix

Engineers, Managers, Researchers, Geologist, and Field Supervisors involved in design, execution, evaluation and/or approval of Matrix treatments.  Although the workshop will focus on state-of-art technology, it will emphasize the practical side of Matrix Stimulation with numerous case histories and hands-on applications.

You will learn how to

  • Determine the best stimulation techniques to remove or bypass the formation damage, i.e. matrix, acid or hydraulic fracture.
  • Successfully apply the latest chemical, mechanical, and software matrix technology. 
  • Select the best candidates for matrix stimulation to yield enhanced production.
  • Quantify the production potential of wells.
  • Identify and characterize the damage in a well along with prevention techniques for future wells.
  • Optimize the treatment design using innovative engineering software.
  • Evaluate the economics of a specific treatment.
  • Recommend laboratory testing and evaluate data.
  • Evaluate onsite QC procedures and results.
  • Execute highly successful matrix stimulation treatments.
  • Evaluate real-time well response onsite using “skin evolution” software.
  • Perform post-treatment evaluation to improve future treatments. 

General knowledge of well intervention and basic concepts of well production and well productivity.
