During various stages of development and reservoir exploitation, formation damage problems could occur. This event is designed for reservoir engineers, production engineers, completion engineers, drilling engineers, reservoir geologists and production geologists, including managers with bottom-line responsibility.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
*Recognize formation damage problems during any stage of development and exploitation.
*Evaluate drilling and completion practices to establish procedures for the selection of non-damaging systems.
*Develop procedures to specifically assess and integrate laboratory and field techniques to recognize and treat formation damage.
*Quantify the annual revenue loss associated with formation damage, and
*Design non-damaging drilling, completion and stimulation programs
*Formation damage and Reservoir Productivity
*Origin of formation damage problem
*Review of basic rock properties affected by formation damage
*Fluid distribution in Reservoir Rocks
*Formation damage severity scale for various stages of well development and reservoir exploitation.
*Potential formation damage problems during various well operations
*Drilling-induced and completions-induced problems
*Petrographic evaluation of formation damage
*Engineering core flow tests for assessment of the degree/depth of damage or simulation
*Determination of depth damage
*Evaluation of damage potential of completion fluids
*Evaluation of hydraulic fracture treatment strategies
*Optimization of matrix acidization based on reservoir lithology
*Recommended procedures for prevention/treatment of formation damage
