squeeze job

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
An operation that requires the careful application of pump pressure to force a treatment fluid or slurry into a planned treatment zone. In most cases, a squeeze treatment will be performed at downhole injection pressure below that of the formation fracture pressure. In high-pressure squeeze operations, performed above the formation fracture pressure, the response of the formation and the injection of treatment fluid may be difficult to predict.
