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

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 inferred from production data, well tests, and production logging. It manifests itself through lower-than-anticipated productivity/injectivity or an increase in skin, among others. 

It is often challenging to identify the exact causes of the formation damage and to employ the appropriate remediation measures. The real cost of formation damage to global well productivity 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 coreflooding, which has been used for many years to select drilling and completion fluids that don't cause significant formation damage. 

Coreflooding can potentially identify the causes of formation damage in wells...but does it?
