Why Choose this Training Course?

This PetroKnowledge training course covers the main aspects of Well Stimulation whose main objective is to repair formation damage in order to restore/increase production. This interactive training course starts by presenting the basic concepts for stimulation job design, execution and follow up.

Discussion is carried out on formation damage and its effect on well performance and planning of acid stimulation treatments. Focus is given to the main causes of formation damage (damage during drilling, cementing, perforating, producing and working over wells) and how these may be identified.

This training course will highlight:

  • Formation damage (Definition, mechanism, counter measures, etc.)
  • Acidizing (Matrix Acidizing, Acid fracturing, etc.)
  • Hydraulic fracturing Overview
  • HSE and Stimulation

The training course will also focus on major areas of Acid Stimulation Techniques, both on theoretical concepts and practical onsite experience. Acidizing with Coiled Tubing will be also discussed in detail, due to its importance in acid placement and formation treatments.
