Second EAGE Workshop on Well Injectivity & Productivity in Carbonates
Advances in Carbonate Acidizing
Short Course Overview:
Carbonate acidizing is fundamentally different than most fluid flow through porous medium. The fluid flow is dominated by statistical distribution of permeability, porosity and mineralogy. Modeling the process of matrix acidizing in carbonate reservoir is challenging because of the geostatistic nature. Today theoretical modeling is in the developing stage, and majority of the field design is based on lab experimental correlations.
This course will present the goals of carbonate acidizing, the basics of understanding acid reaction and transportation in carbonate formation through theoretical and empirical modeling, the procedure and application of experimental research in core flood test, and field applications in design and optimization.
