Improved reservoir contact

Single-phase retarded acid extends reservoir contact compared with conventional hydrochloric acid (HCl). The low reaction rate of the acid allows it to travel deep into the reservoir before completely spending. The use of hydrochloric acid as the reactive component gives the fluid a high dissolution capacity. The acid-retarding component is completely water soluble; therefore, the resulting single-phase fluid can accommodate friction reducers, enabling higher pumping rates.
