‘A reduction of permeability around the wellbore that is the consequence of drilling, completion, injection, chemical treatment, attempted stimulation or production of that well’

Combining Geological and Chemical Expertise to Protect your Well.

The Core Flooding Team at Scaled Solutions employ state of the art rig equipment and techniques to evaluate oilfield chemicals, protocols and sequences. We have standard protocols for evaluating Inhibitors, Dissolvers, Diverters, Biocides, Drilling Fluids, Completion Fluids, Breakers and other oilfield chemicals. In addition, we are able to examine any planned injected sequence, as well as determining critical salinity, critical fines mobilisation rate, baseline permeability measurements and other key formation damage properties.

In addition to standard formation damage testing protocols, Scaled Solutions also provide a complete bespoke formation damage testing service encompassing:

  • High Temperature / High Pressure (HTHP) conditions
    (up to T = 225°C)
  • Three-Phase Gas/Oil/Brine testing
  • Viscous fluids
  • Scaling brines
  • Dual Core Tests
  • Chemical placement/Diversion testing
  • Stimulation

If your chemical is hazardous, that’s no problem. Our core flood rigs are designed to be entirely operated from within a dedicated fume hood. We can design a core flood protocol to simulate your field scenario. Get in touch to find out more.
