BJ Sandstone Acid System

Improve stimulation in sandstone formations

The patented Baker Hughes BJ Sandstone Acid systems improve well productivity by distributing acid more uniformly throughout the formation and reducing formation deconsolidation compared with conventional hydrochloric/hydrofluoric (HCl/HF) mud acid blends. With low total acidity and high dissolving power, these systems remove fines damage and stimulate flow paths beyond the near-wellbore formation region. The acid systems control HF acid spending, providing deeper effective treatment compared to conventional HF acid and retarded acid treatment solutions.
