DESCRIPTION

Fin-Acid Retarder is a highly effective surfactant slowing reactivity of hydrochloric acid with Limestone and Dolomite. The acid retardation is caused by filming action which partially blocks the hydrogen cation migration to the reaction sites on carbonate surface.

Features and benefits:
Fin-Acid Retarder can be added to any acid including a common 28% hydrochloric acid used in oil field acidizing.  The use of retarded acid will result in differential etching of the fracture face far from the well bore.  This is extremely important in low permeability reservoirs where the benefits of stimulation are directly related to live acid penetration.

  • Fin-Acid Retarder significantly reduces the over-etching that occurs near the well bore in hot formations, achieving nearly 10-fold penetration over a regular hydrochloric acid.
  • Due to the delaying acid reaction, the rock dissolving power of acid is extended over a considerable distance out into the formation
  • Retarded acid provides for more uniform rock removal along the length of the fracture.

Dosage
Fin-Acid Retarder is most economical when added at 5-10 gal/1000 (5-10L/m3 ) to live acid prior to treatment in a batch tank or on-the-fly.  Figure 1 represents a comparison of acid reaction times.
