Jack F Tate: Controlled rate acidization process. Texaco, T H Whaley, C G Ries, Kenneth R Priem, July 13, 1976: US03968840 (77 worldwide citation)

A process is provided whereby a subterranean formation may be treated uniformly with acid at a controlled rate to a considerable distance from an injection point. The process includes an introduction of an acid which is solid but will slowly solubilize in water or brine in a subterranean formation. ...
