In the article, Bradley and Sherwin explain how high density converters (HDC) restore productivity in the wellbore by mitigating damage caused by barite and scale. Well Flow’s groundbreaking HDC technology is non-corrosive and does not damage the formation. HDC is a straight chemical spotted “neat” without water or additives, requires no special handling and is safe to use as synthetic oil based mud. Unlike other barite dissolvers, HDC is able to withstand downhole temperatures of over 400°F/205°C.

HDC treatments are performed in two stages: cleaning barite and scale from completion components followed by penetrating the perforation tunnels. Treatments help to clean up perforated liners, wire wrap screens in open hole, and expandable screens clogged with barite. HDC is also effective in removing field-grade barite and increasing production and/or injection rates.
