After the acidizing treatment, the product is denoted as AO-MWCNTs.
In addition, the system can be continuously mixed to shorten the fracturing cycle and can carry acid (HCL and HF) of concentration 1%-9% and organic acid 1%-3%, to achieve combination of acidizing and sand fracturing.
The results have been shown that the feldspar and biotite are relative more sensitively reacted with the acid solution than the quartz, and the acidizing solutions change the mechanical properties of rocks.
