Fines

Fines migration in the reservoir can be caused by a number of factors, including frequent squeeze treatments, injection, flow rate changes, salinity changes, and other factors. Migration of fines from the reservoir creates a serious flow assurance risk by choking pore throats and reducing permeability. Near-wellbore damage is frequently seen as a direct effect of fines migration. Reducing fines migration is typically accomplished through either preventing fines from migrating initially or from dispersing the already-created fines in order to produce them through the wellbore. Fines migration is a complicated problem with several sources and solution approaches. Tomson Technologies has extensive expertise and research on particular fines migration problems and provides custom solutions to overcome individual fines migration issues.
