Key words: well completion, surfactant, physical and chemical interaction, kinetics of capillary imbibition into rocks, relative permeability, surface tension, water saturation of invasion zone.
The paper provides the findings of a research into the gradient of physical and chemical processes of capillary imbibition into low-permeability reservoirs as influenced by surfactant concentration in drilling mud filtrate. The research shows that there is a possibility of regulating the degree of water saturation in filtrate invasion zones.
