Baker Hughes has released its Sorb Ultra solid inhibitors, which are mixed with proppant to minimize the risk of scaling, paraffin buildup, and asphaltene depositions. The solid substrate on which the inhibitor is applied is engineered to help ensure reliable application in deep water. The treatment begins in the propped zone as soon as produced fluids contact the inhibitors. This process occurs before the produced fluids reach the wellbore, in which temperature or pressure changes commonly cause flow assurance problems. The treatment can be applied on new or existing wells and is ideal for wells with closure rates in excess of 8,000 psi.
