Understanding Inorganic Scaling - Mechanisms, Control and Management Cannes
2-day Session
Instructor(s) Gordon M. Graham

This two-day course is an introduction to inorganic scaling. It includes an overview of the different types of inorganic oilfield scales encountered during production, and the various methods used to control them. Field examples will illustrate the importance of an effective scale management strategy.

Topics Include:

  • Why scale forms and how to treat it, including both chemical and engineering solutions
  • Conventional acid soluble scales (carbonates) and non-acid soluble scales (sulfates) as well as other less common scales such as sulfides
  • The chemistry of scale inhibition as well as the benefits and limitations of different chemical inhibitors
  • The squeeze process, the mechanisms involved, and the various chemical and reservoir factors that control the treatment lifetime, as well other chemical deployment methods such as continuous injection, etc.

Learning Objectives:

  • Scale removal, including both mechanical and chemical methods
  • The influence of initial field design and varying production conditions on the control of inorganic scales
  • The use of modeling tools such as scale prediction software, reservoir simulators and near well-bore treatment models
  • A technical, economic, and risk-based analysis process for estimating total field scale management costs for new field developments
  • Throughout the course, extensive reference is made to real field case studies and other published works to illustrate the importance of the various aspects covered.

Keynote Lunch: Oilfield Chemistry: A Number Game! Americas Ballroom
Speaker(s) Professor Ken Sorbie, Institute of Petroleum Engineering, Heriot-Watt University

Note from Ken:  The two great loves of my professional life have been (and still are) Chemistry and Numbers.  For example, whatever age I have been, I have always been aware of what element has that atomic number; e.g. my first daughter was born when I was Cu and my second when I was Rb!  In many oilfield chemistry applications, Chemistry and Numbers quite closely merge, and in this talk I will try to explain what I mean by giving some examples. Like most of you at this meeting, my original attraction to chemistry as a young person was “bangs, stinks and colour changes”.  As I have worked in this area over the last 36 years (while progressing steadily up the Periodic Table) I have found that Chemistry and Numbers are even more “bonded” than I had originally thought. Indeed, I believe that Oilfield Chemistry (and all of Chemistry) is basically about the quantification of “bangs, stinks and colour changes” (and a few other things)…and quantification is just Numbers.  The units of these numbers in Oilfield Chemistry may be ppm, cP, bbl, Daltons etc., but they usually also include $, £ or some other currency unit as well.

03  Inorganic Scales and Geochemistry Greenland
Session Chairpersons Myles Martin Jordan - Nalco Champion, An Ecolab Company, Gordon Michael Graham - Scaled Solutions Limited
Inorganic scale control has presented challenges over the decades. Management of the more conventional sulfate and carbonate scales has vastly improved with developments in scale prediction, inhibitor performance testing, new molecules for harsher conditions, better deployment methods and improved monitoring. Fresh technical and commercial issues have emerged as the oil industry has developed more challenging reservoirs with higher pressures/temperature, higher concentrations of H2S, higher shear conditions with use of inflow control devices in production wells, and enhanced oil recovery utilizing novel chemicals and gases. This session will highlight these very challenges via a range of field application and fundamental research papers.

09  Chemical Additives for Unconventional Reservoirs Greenland
Session Chairpersons Jonathan James Wylde - Clariant Oil Services, Yujun Feng - Sichuan Univ Cheng Du
A rich array of papers comprise this session that centers on shale plays and the chemical additives required to most efficiently produce hydrocarbons.. A fundamental review of the Eagle Ford Shale lithology will be presented, as well as how different brine types affect formation damage of shales during stimulation. A review of a novel method for paraffin control during fracturing using water dispersible chemistry has been included. This topic will be followed by one addressing a major focus on surfactant chemistry used during hydraulic fracturing to function as flowback aids either in a single phase or in a microemulsified form.

10  New or Frontier Chemical Technologies Venice
Session Chairpersons Amy T. Kan - Rice University, Sam Lewis - Halliburton Cementing
New and unconventional methods and treatment with chemical additives and their applications will be discussed. As the industry explores deeper reservoirs, the co-production of hydrogen sulfide and the control of potential concerns such as sulfide scale is becoming more and more important. The topics in this session include new techniques, analytical procedures, chemicals, and nanotechnology to minimize scale formation and improve oil and gas production.
