Microwave heating effects on formation damages in tight gas sands
MetadataShow full item record
In tight gas sand reservoir, formation damages cause severe reduction of gas production rate. In this study, the microwave heating method is used to heat tight sandstones and investigates how microwave heating influences the petrographic and petrophysical properties of these samples by using various experimental techniques and numerical simulation. It is demonstrated that removing formation damage and enhancing reservoir quality with microwave heating is feasible in the near wellbore region.
