Case Studies Part 3

06 Jun 2024

This session covers a wide range of topics, including a cross-functional study with a scale diagnose and control of unconventional wells combining produced water source allocation, scale modeling, lateral production logging, well intervention, and analog well observations. One study provides an insight into the impacts of FeS deposition control in various applications and shares valuable best practices from case histories to aid in successfully FeS scale management. Another study presents combined results of reactive transport model and field observations demonstrating that sulfate level in injected seawater could be relaxed while some wells require close monitoring. The session also features a case study of the Brazilian Pre-Salt, emphasising the importance of matching lab testing conditions as close as possible with field conditions, rather than “worst case” scenario, was highlighted. Finally, another study demonstrated how alkalinity can be used to calculate pH in complex water mixtures, with the help of a robust algorithm.
