In oil and gas industry, there are many challenges faced before reservoir fluid produced out of reservoir rock. In drilling progress, the reservoir rock may be invaded by drilling fluid and cause several damage to the wall formation. This is called as formation damaged. Formation damage is defined as any type of a process which results in a reduction of the flow capacity of an oil, water or gas bearing formation. In oil and gas reservoirs, formation damage has known as a source of serious productivity reductions as it could lead to water injectivity problems in many waterflood projects. The injectivity problem has reduces the effectiveness of recovery mechanism, mainly on third recovery mechanism. Besides, formation damaged has negative affect to oil and gas production as it could reduces the production due to its mechanism.
