Lab studies and scale management strategies

06 Jun 2024

This session highlights new developments for halite solubility measurement, near wellbore carbonate and sulphate scale dissolvers and a comparison of scale management strategies for conventional vs. unconventional wells. The need for improved prediction accuracy for halite solubility in high CaCl2 solutions under HPHT conditions will be discussed alongside suggestions for future model revisions. Secondly, the potential formation damage capacity of carbonate and sulphate dissolvers investigated by two-phase core flood studies will be presented. This session will conclude with a technical overview of scale management strategies applied in conventional and unconventional wells, considering a future need for extended reach wells.
