Theoretical and Experimental Studies of Sandstone Acidizing Academic Article uri icon


  • The matrix acidization of sandstone by a hydrochloric/hydrofluoric acid mixture is described through use of a capillary model. The model was solved first in linear coordinates so that it could be compared with the results of coreflood experients performed on Berea sandstone. The model predictions showed reasonable agreement with the experimental data and yielded specific information about the reaction characteristics of the sandstone/HCl/HF system.
