fluid compatibility test

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A test, or series of tests, performed to check that no undesirable reactions occur with a specific fluid. The testing process may include checks for compatibility with other treating fluids, wellbore fluids, reservoir fluids and the reservoir formation. In extreme cases, the mixing of seemingly benign fluids can create significant reactions that may damage the reservoir permeability permanently.
