Formation Damage Assessment & Remediation

Formation Damage Assessment & Remediation

EVALUATE AND SELECT THE RIGHT DRILLING AND COMPLETION FLUIDS FOR YOUR WELL. AND, WHEN THINGS DON’T WORK OUT AS PLANNED, ENHANCE WELL PRODUCTIVITY THROUGH EXPERT INVESTIGATION AND REMEDIATION OF FORMATION DAMAGE. 

Premier formation damage solutions provide independent verification of drilling, completion, and injection fluid performance. Our state-of-the art technology and expert analysis allow our clients to diagnose permeability impairment mechanisms and evaluate potential remediation strategies.

Premier uses innovative experimental designs – including in-depth geological analysis with NMR and micro-CT imaging – that recreate the reservoir in the laboratory. Drilling and completion fluids can then be applied under the same conditions and sequences as they are in the field to simulate damage mechanisms. Differential micro-CT imaging is used to measure and discriminate different types of damage, for which remediation methods can then be identified and evaluated.

Premier formation damage solutions allow our clients to better understand rock-fluid interaction and compatibility, helping them to anticipate and mitigate drilling hazards and productivity impairment. This process can improve cash flow by reducing wellbore damage due to harmful fluid losses or the use of fluids that are incompatible with formation mineralogy. And because Premier is independent from chemical vendors and service providers, our clients benefit from unbiased identification of the least-damaging and most cost-effective fluids to ensure the optimal economic outcome.

Key Results

  • Quantification of near wellbore permeability impairment
  • Identification and assessment of potential remediation methods
  • De-risking of fluid system/vendor selections through independent verification and testing
