Emulsions and sludges can form as a consequence of incompatibilities between the combined acid, formation fluids, and acid reaction products. Proper planning, additive selection, and fluid compatibility testing will prevent these damage problems to a great extent. When emulsions form, the viscosity can restrict flow, hindering the rate of injection or production. In Sharif Petro Energy, we are testing different additives that work to ensure fluid compatibility and prevent emulsions. In the event an emulsion does occur, our team can design a fit-for-purpose treating fluid to reduce overall viscosity and get your well back on track.
