... The results indicate greater sensitivity to formation damage in vertical wells than in deviated or horizontal wells completed in similar reservoir intervals. This is of course not a revelation in itself but the ability to model the mud cake, filtrate invaded zone and the completion do open up...

... saturations. Nevertheless, water treatment volumes of 10,000 – 20,000 m3 per well are routinely performed. Conventional thinking would expect reduced hydrocarbon production due to formation damage or water block. Cleanup efficiencies of these massive water volumes during flowback is driven by the desire...
