Case Histories Part 2

06 Jun 2024

Overcoming scaling challenges in oilfields goes way beyond bottle testing of scale deposition at laboratory. An effective scale management program involves consideration of a vast array of other operating parameters, including completion and stimulation methods, operation restriction factors, commingling scenarios, well temperature and pressure profiles, etc. In this case histories (part 2) session, researchers from academia, oil-producers, and service companies, will share their recent findings regarding how the field scaling risks would be impacted by EOR polymer flooding, altered brine chemistries from representative wells in a field, and even the same wells during different producing stages. The insights gained from these field cases brings incredible values to the industry for a deeper understanding of the scaling risks in the operation and a better chance for the design optimization.
