Reservoir Formation Damage, Third Edition, provides the latest information on the economic problems that can occur during various phases of oil and gas recovery from subsurface reservoirs, including production, drilling, hydraulic fracturing, and workover operations.

The text helps readers better understand the processes causing formation damage and the factors that can lead to reduced flow efficiency in near-wellbore formation during the various phases of oil and gas production.

The third edition in the series provides the most all-encompassing volume to date, adding new material on conformance and water control, hydraulic fracturing, special procedures for unconventional reservoirs, field applications design, and cost assessment for damage control measures and strategies.

  • Understand relevant formation damage processes by laboratory and field testing
  • Develop theories and mathematical expressions for description of the fundamental mechanisms and processes
  • Predict and simulate the consequences and scenarios of the various types of formation damage processes encountered in petroleum reservoirs
  • Develop methodologies and optimal strategies for formation damage control and remediation
