SE03  Open Forum: Retarded Acids for Carbonate Stimulation: A Burning Investment or a Boom for Improved Production Salon A
Moderator(s) Murtaza Ziauddin - SLB
Speaker(s) Azhar Hayat - Shell, Mohan Panga - ExxonMobil/ADNOC, Mohammed Sayed - Aramco Americas
Recently developed retarded acid systems for use in carbonate stimulation have created a lack of consensus on rigorous performance evaluation and fluid selection criteria. As a result, traditional methods are used to evaluate the performance of such systems, but they are biased toward conventional chemistries. Therefore, such systems often do not reach their full potential, due to unoptimized dosage and injection rates. This forum seeks to discuss workflows for performance evaluation and optimization of treatment designs for such systems in an effort to maximize their benefits. The Panel of experts with an interactive audience will explore the advantages and disadvantages of different evaluation criteria.
