Emerging Technology

05 Jun 2024

The development and application of new technology provides an important contribution to maintain and continuously improve scale management strategies which are needed to keep both new and existing assets in the oil, gas and energy industries in good health. The papers in this session will highlight recent developments in scale management which will include novel chemical deployment technology for calcium carbonate scale control, new approaches to strategic scale mitigation in low water cut wells and improvements in onsite scale inhibitor analysis. In addition, a new understanding will be gained of the challenges for squeezing carbonate reservoirs and the prediction and control of calcium iron carbonate scales at high temperature.
