Open Forum: Mythbusters: Will Formation Damage Crush your Completion? Proven or Busted! Salons A-B
Moderator(s) Niall Fleming, Statoil ASA; Allan Twynam, BP

The Forum will cover many of the “myths” around formation damage through interactive and stimulating discussions and will attempt to conclude if they are proven or busted!


Formation damage that occurs downhole in producers or injectors has never actually been physically observed but is inferred from production data, well tests, and production logging.  It manifests itself through lower than anticipated productivity/injectivity or an increase in skin, amongst others.  However, it is often very challenging to identify the exact cause(s) of the formation damage observed and therefore, to employ the appropriate remediation measures. The real cost of formation damage to well productivity across the globe in terms of deferred production is difficult to articulate. Given this background, it is often a challenge in the current cost cutting environment to gain management approval for non-damaging designer fluid systems or costly well interventions where the chances of successful avoidance or removal of damage are difficult to determine.  One tool that we do have at our disposal to identify formation damage is that of coreflooding.  This technique has been used for many years in order to select drilling and completion fluids that do not cause significant amounts of formation damage.  Furthermore, coreflooding can potentially identify the causes of formation damage in wells...but does it?
