Acid Stimulation Techniques Training Course

This course is designed to help perform acidizing on a well candidate in a logical step-by-step process and then select and execute an appropriate chemical treatment for the oil/gas well. The subject matter is practical in intent and avoids the more complicated acid reaction chemistries. Effective acidizing is guided by practical limits in volumes and types of acid and procedures so as to achieve an optimum removal of the formation damage around the wellbore.

To provide reasonable procedures and guidelines and to offer cautions suggested by particular formation compositions and reservoir conditions. At the end of the course delegates will learn about the many processes involved in acid stimulation operations, about acidizing equipment and how to plan and execute an acid job.

Drilling, completion, workover and production engineers and managers. Reservoir and geology
engineers, field maintenance supervisors and operators. Service companies and equipment
manufacturing engineers. Safety engineers and personnel selected by their companies for attending special training courses.
