- Reaction retardants
Reaction retardants are applied to enable a deeper penetration of a non-neutralized acidizing fluid into the reservoir by controlling the rate of acid reaction with the rock. Crude oil contained in the reservoir is a natural reaction retardant as it delays contact of acidizing fluid with the rock.

Sources of energy which resources are replenished in a short time, for example hydro, wind, solar, geothermal energy and the biomass.
- Reservoir rock
A lithological interval of a petroleum formation of which natural properties: porosity, presence of fractures or caverns and sorptive properties enable accumulation of hydrocarbons.

A location in petroleum formation of which structural or stratigraphic patterns form a barrier (trap) to hydrocarbons preventing their migration.
- Rock mass
A rock massive within which mining operations are conducted.
