Assessing Acid Flowback Integrity Risk

The acids used in downhole treatments are expected to induce severe corrosion attack on production tubing, downhole tools and casing, even though the anticipated contact times are kept short. To reduce the aggressive attack of the acid on tubing and casing materials, corrosion inhibitors are added to the acid solution. Even through inhibitors are known to provide some corrosion protection, they are usually effective only at high concentrations.
