Second EAGE Workshop on Well Injectivity & Productivity in Carbonates

10 - 12 December
Doha, Qatar
Call for papers

Workshop Overview

Injectivity and productivity in carbonates have their unique set of challenges that are often fundamentally different from those in sandstones, due to complex rock characteristics, thermodynamic and geomechanical behaviors, chemistry of fluids and rock-fluid interactions.

Following the success of its first edition in Doha 2015, we are launching the second edition of EAGE Workshop on Well Injectivity and Productivity in Carbonates (WIPIC 2017) that will bring together people from academia, applied R&D centers, service companies as well as national and international oil and gas companies to discuss the latest ideas and innovations relating to well performance in carbonates and field applications. The workshop is scheduled for 10-12 December 2017 in Doha, Qatar.

Short Course: Advances in Carbonate Acidizing

Included in the technical programme will be a 1-day Short Course that is set present the goals of carbonate acidizing, the basics of understanding acid reaction and transportation in carbonate formation through theoretical and empirical modeling, the procedure and application of experimental research in core flood test, and field applications in design and optimization.

Carbonate acidizing is fundamentally different than most fluid flow through porous medium. The fluid flow is dominated by statistical distribution of permeability, porosity and mineralogy. Modeling the process of matrix acidizing in carbonate reservoir is challenging because of the geostatistic nature. Today theoretical modeling is in the developing stage, and majority of the field design is based on lab experimental correlations. 

The objective is for the participants to be able to understand the mechanics of carbonate acid stimulation and wormhole concept and optimal condition; design treatment volume, select correct completion method and estimate production improvement after stimulation.

Registration for the workshop is now open.
