- Remediate multiple near-wellbore formation damage mechanisms
- Mobilize damaging particulates and remove emulsions caused by drilling and completion fluids
- Extend production life of older wells and improve ROI of wells with near-wellbore damage
- Underperforming wells, both producers and injectors
- Perforation fluids
- Acid pre-flush
If near-wellbore formation damage has caused your production rates to decline, the Baker Hughes MICRO-CURE™ E2 cased-hole remediation system offers a solution. Combining proprietary chemistry with the application expertise of our Baker Hughes engineers, the MICRO-CURE E2 system opens up flow pathways around your wellbore to meet your production targets.
Targeted treatment for optimal production
The MICRO-CURE E2 system uses proprietary microemulsion technology that provides an ultra-low interfacial tension for optimal cleaning and solvency. The technology targets and removes a number of common damage mechanisms from your near-wellbore rock matrix, including:
- Synthetic oil-based mud losses
- In-situ emulsions
- Wettability changes
- Acid remediation
- Drill-in fluid filtrate
- Perforation damage
- Asphaltene and paraffin deposits
- Phase trapping and blocking
- Brine invasion
With these obstacles eliminated, your reservoir can flow or inject at its maximum potential, increasing the value and return on investment (ROI) of your well.
Premixed and ready to pump
Our MICRO-CURE E2 system arrives at your wellsite as a premixed formulation that can be deployed downhole immediately. Thanks to its low interfacial tension and self-diffusion properties, the MICRO-CURE E2 system acts spontaneously to solubilize oil and remove solids, without the need for an external energy source or agitation. Simply apply the product to the damaged zone in a single step, either by bull heading or by using a coiled-tubing unit.
And because the MICRO-CURE E2 system contains no strong acids or harsh solvents, the remediation system minimizes your health, safety, and environmental (HSE) risks while increasing reservoir performance.
The system has an established history of significantly increasing production in wells that were unsuccessfully treated by pumping strong acid or installing gas lift. And wells that were on the verge of being abandoned due to marginal production rates were brought back to profitable production with the MICRO-CURE E2 system.
Thanks to its superior performance over conventional remediation treatments, the MICRO-CURE E2 system was recognized as a winner of the prestigious World Oil Award for Best Production Technology.
As your wellbore remediation needs change to present new production challenges, you can count on Baker Hughes to continue advancing cost-effective, efficient remediation solutions to maximize your reservoir’s production potential.
