There is still a requirement to increase scale squeeze lifetimes and the incorporation of an ionic polymer into the over flush stage of the squeeze treatment has been found to increase squeeze treatment lifetimes especially when combined with the same additives in the pre-flush. Steve Heath will explore how new squeeze design technology can be applied with a wide variety of scale inhibitor chemistry and ionic polymer additives and is applicable over a wide temperature range from 30°C to 200°C. The presentation will also cover how aqueous, non-aqueous and hybrid treatment designs can also be applied.

Triple C: Complex—Cost—Cooperate

Today there is a high focus on developing marginal fields in areas where the infrastructure is in place. This reduces cost and gives less impact on the environment. Complex mixing of fluids from different subsea tie-ins to a host platform, introduces challenges to the chemical management. The fluid compositions will fluctuate over time and “hot spots” of scaling (for instance) may occur. It is essential that the operator, offshore and onshore organisations and the chemical supplier cooperate to maintain process regularity and stable production. Kari Ramstad will discuss all of the above in this presentation on Flow Assurance in Complex Topside Processes with Subsea Tie-ins and Multiple Fluid Systems.
