Qatar Petroleum (QP) and Total E&P Qatar will be hosting an event on Wednesday 24 September 2014 to mark a major milestone as well as to celebrate the achievements of its joint research project on carbonates acid stimulation.

A number of distinguished guests from the Qatar Foundation and the Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP) will also be present at the event, which will be held at the QP and Total research centres in QSTP’s Tech 1 building.

The event will be attended by officials, researchers and staff from QP and Total, including Dr Nasser Saqer Al Mohannadi and Dr Philippe Julien, who are leading the Qatar research centers of QP and Total, respectively.

QP and Total signed the research project agreement on carbonates acid stimulation in May 2012. The idea behind the research project is that injecting acid in Qatar’s carbonates reservoirs dissolves a part of the rocks, thus improving the permeability of the reservoirs and, hence, the productivity of the producing wells.
