Water Injection operations in oilfields can introduce formation damage resulting in reduced injectivity and thus reduced productivity. In addition to formation damage testing to support producer well operations, Scaled Solutions has extensive experience in laboratory testing to examine water injection feasibility.
The global trend in reducing water disposal means there is a need to validate produced water specifications. The Core Flooding Team has developed a number of test protocols to evaluate the formation damage potential of produced waters including suspended solids, remnant hydrocarbons and production chemicals. In addition to this, the potential for scaling through injection of incompatible mixed brines can be investigated in core testing.
