The production of hydrocarbons from a subterranean hydrocarbon-bearing formation containing acid-soluble components, such as one composed at least in part of dolomite or limestone, is stimulated by injecting into the formation a composition comprising an aqueous solution of a mineral acid having dissolved therein a phosphate ester of prescribed formula. The elimination of plugging of capillary openings within the formation and mineral scale deposition on production equipment due to post-precipitation of dissolved salts subsequent to acidization by means of the said phosphate ester results in a substantial improvement in hydrocarbon recovery.
