While our understanding of the factors that influence inorganic scale formation and control are constantly improving, more extreme environments for hydrocarbon recovery continue to emerge. These environmental challenges include physical properties such as high pressure/temperature, high total dissolved solids and high pH, location in the form of deepwater wells with complex subsea architecture as well as unconventional long reach horizontal wells. These challenges are now combined with the demand to improve the sustainability of chemical program applied as we move into the energy transition period.
The Society of Petroleum Engineers’ Oilfield Scale Symposium has become recognised as one of the world’s leading gatherings for industry professionals and academics involved in the development, implementation and monitoring of controls applied to mitigate oilfield scale in upstream oil and gas production. This event offers an unrivalled opportunity for you to share and discuss challenges and solutions to inorganic scale control from fundamental research to hands on experience of tackling such trials in field applications. The technical content is internationally renowned for its high quality and attracts delegates from across a broad spectrum of the global oilfield scale community.
