KSA-110320 – Evolution of Limited Entry Multi Stage Stimulation Completion Technology for Improved Acid Stimulation in Tight Carbonate Reservoirs

Summary

This paper describes a novel approach that enhances acid stimulation effectiveness and fulfills stimulation objectives using advanced open hole multi-stage completion technology. This topic is presented in the context of acid stimulation in carbonate formations. Outside of treatment design and fluid recipe, homogenous acid distribution is one of the most critical aspects for treatment success.

Evolution of the technology and comparison with its predecessor is discussed. It also demonstrates the use of a new surface monitoring system that supplies real time data during sleeve activation, enabling clear and accurate detection of downhole events.
