Paper Number: SPE-189500-MS
... filtercake cleanup. Dynamic drill-in fluid clean-up testing provides a state of the art methodology for determining the least damaging drill-in fluid and / or the most effective clean-up treatment for the filtercake. However, the test method to date, referenced in SPE 112497 and SPE 179024 has used a 100...

... filtercake cleanup. Laboratory simulations of actual wellbore conditions to determine the effectiveness of wellbore cleanup treatments is quite complex. When the formation is unconsolidated and requires sand control such as screen only or gravel pack, the complexity increases further. Typical core flood...

.... Once the screen was in place and expanded, a delayed breaker was spotted in the screen to eventually dissolve the carbonate filtercake left behind by the drill-in fluid. The well was then displaced to completion brine. Reducing cross contamination during these displacements was important to avoid...

Such changes in fluid design should be carefully evaluated, as they can have a negative impact on other fluid parameters such as equivalent circulation density, swab and surge or reduced hole cleaning efficiency. Research should be initiated to develop...

... injectivity is therefore a critical factor. Injectivity decline in a well is a process characterized by a combination of external filtercake build-up on the formation and internal filtration in the formation matrix. Ochi et al (1999) stated that the external filter cake build-up and flow properties...
