Reservoir Formation Damage is a concise and practical reference for engineers, scientists, and operators engaged in various aspects of formation damage, including testing, evaluation, diagnosis, prediction, and mitigation. There is currently no other book on the market that addresses this very expensive headache for the oil and gas industry in a comprehensive manner. New material includes a chapter on prevention and remediation, a chapter on evaluating formation damage from a mechanistic point of view (as opposed to mathematical), and a chapter of case histories. Long-awaited new edition includes material on prevention and remediation and evaluating formation damage from a mechanistic…
