WELL CLEANING APPLICATION USING HIGH PRESSURE JETTING
Many older wells have near wellbore damage and/or paraffin in the wellbore and formation. A very economical enhancement is to use high pressure solvent which will clean out the perforations and excavate the inner sides of the wellbore.
We currently use a rotating tool with orifices oriented 90 degrees(sideways), 35 degrees forward and 135 degrees to the rear. The rotating tool operates to 22,000 psi with high flow rates to excavate the inner bore. This erodes the inner bore and dissolves and removes the near wellbore paraffin to enhance the production of the oil well. This is a very economical procedure and using special high pressure tubing one can rapidly complete the enhancement is a short period of time.
