water control

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A treatment conducted within a reservoir or perforated interval to reduce water production. Water-control treatments may be necessary when the production efficiency of a well, or the process capability of surface facilities, is compromised by the volume of water produced with the oil or gas. Treatment options include selective isolation of the water-producing perforations or localized treatment of the formation matrix.
