Well Stimulation and Sand Control

Diagnose production problems related to formation damage and recommend appropriate solutions. Upon completion of this module, the participant should be able to: diagnose various types of formation damage and identify stimulation candidates, design a matrix acid stimulation treatment based on specific well conditions and reservoir characteristics, specify the materials, equipment and pumping schedule for a hydraulic fracturing procedure, and apply traditional and modern sand control methods to optimize well productivity.

Formation Damage Mechanisms, Prevention and Remediation

This presentation will review different mechanisms that can result in formation damage during well completion, stimulation and production operations. Completion strategies and fluid selection/design methodologies that need to be followed in order to prevent formation damage in different formation types will be discussed. Identification of potential damage mechanisms in an underperforming well, and remedial methods that should be applied targeting the specific type of damage will be explained considering the formation characteristics.

Formation Stabilization for Unconventional Shales – It’s More Than Conventional Clay Control

The emphasis in this webinar is to highlight the pronounced differences in formation damage mechanisms between unconventional versus conventional reservoirs and their implications to the immediate, intermediate and long term production. Addressing specific identified damage mechanisms can be achieved with fluids and chemical additive selection based on the specific reservoir mineralogy and the fracture surface. Discussions will be made on various region-specific damage mechanism and treatments for understanding the fluid-induced sensitivities in specific formations within North America and warning signs that damage is occurring in your fracture.
