In conjunction with field review and consultancy services we routinely carry out predictive work using state of the art software. This covers common scales (BaSO4, SrSO4, CaSO4 and CaCO3) scale types and exotics (sulphides, silicates) and evaporation sensitive halite scales.
Scale Prediction using:-
- ScaleChem™ (OLI Inc.)
- Other commercial software, subject to licensing
- In-house developed spreadsheet methods based on published algorithms.
Methodology for reservoir and near production well scaling prediction involves state of the art reservoir saturation procedures in order to obtain live fluid chemistry including dissolved gases and at equilibrium with reservoir minerals.
Predictions aid field development planning and problem solving on existing production systems, also the design of laboratory test methods for scale inhibitor chemicals.
