Course Overview

The Matrix Acidizing course starts with the coverage of determining formation properties of sandstones and carbonates on micro and macro scale. Formation damage affects well performance and project economics. As such, emphasis is on damage that occurs during drilling, cementing, perforating, producing and working over of wells, and the appropriate damage identification / remediation / removal techniques. Acidizing well candidate selection is given special attention, followed by coverage of fluid selection, matrix acid treatment design, and, placement / diversion techniques. Energized fluids are also covered, as they offer distinct advantages, followed by quality assurance / quality control, and safety.
