inhibited acid

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
An acid treatment fluid that has been mixed with chemical additives to control the corrosive effect on the mixing and pumping equipment, as well as on any wellbore tubulars and completion equipment that the fluid may contact. Almost all acid treatments require the addition of an inhibitor to protect against undesirable reactions.
