The performance of matrix acidized selected wells from the Tertiary sandstone reservoirs in the Niger/Delta was evaluated, Data obtained was used to evaluate flow efficiency and production performance before and after acidizing. The results showed that Matrix acidizing proven to be the best stimulation technique employed in recent years to remove near wellbore damages and invariably increase productivity. The analysis involves the post net oil and percentage increase in oil achieved after acidizing, well inflow performance quality indicator and decline rate analysis.
