Study on application of chemicals for near-wellbore treatment to reduce watercut in produced fluid
High water cut in production wells will increase the water content in the oil produced, resulting in declined oil production of the wells as well as decreased efficiency of used chemicals and surface facility equipment. This paper presents the results of application of chemicals for near-wellbore treatment to reduce the water content in the produced fluid.
