Paper Number: SPE-174278-MS
... engineering discipline that most water-injection wells have been fractured during the course of inection. When injecting into low permeability formations or with the injected water not being of standard quality, fractures are sometimes induced intentionally to obtain a higher injectivity as required from...

... water injective capacity (md-ft) of the formation, and the formation damage (skin effect) surrounding the wellbore. In the development of the method, equations are presented which give the theoretical background for predicting the behavior of water injection wells. Certain physical factors which limit...

... should be accounted for when determining the fracture pressure. During the long-term water injection, a flow barrier may form due to large particles plugging on the wellbore wall, likewise, the formation permeability around the well may suffer damage due to fine particles plugging the pore channels...

However, formation damage due to solid-laden slurry injection can cause large uncertainties in injection well performance and waste containment assurance. Complicating the problems are the many formation damage mechanisms that are often difficult to model...

... Abstract Formation damage around horizontal wells can result in poor performance and failure of these wells. The objective of this paper is to present a new solution for transient pressure behavior of horizontal well injectors and/or producers in injection processes. Equations for productivity...

... Formation damage is defined as any process that causes a reduction in the natural inherent productivity of gas or oil producing formation, or a reduction in the injectivity of a water or gas injection well. It represents a big problem in the oil and gas industry, where the pore space of formation is blocked...
