08:00 - 17:00
Training Course (2 Days): Understanding Inorganic Scaling—Mechanisms, Control and Management
Ticketed Event 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:

  • Why scale forms and how to treat it, including both chemical and engineering solutions
  • Conventional acid soluble scales (carbonates) and non-acid soluble scales (sulphates) as well as other less common scales such as sulphides
  • 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.

Training Course: Flow Assurance—Managing Flow Dynamics and Production Chemistry
Ticketed Event
Instructor(s) Dr. Abul Jamaluddin

This course presents a holistic approach to flow assurance. The course will introduce technologies, workflows and their deployment for the identification, characterisation and management of flow impediments, such as slugging and precipitation of organic and inorganic solids. The course will present best practices and fit-for-purpose design solutions for minimising the risk of flow stoppage while transporting hydrocarbons from “Pore to Sales Meter.” The principles will be demonstrated using field examples from around the world. 

Topics Include:

  • Introduce key impediments to flow, including slugging and precipitation of organic and inorganic solids, with examples from various challenging environments
  • Review technologies for capturing fluid samples and characterising their PVT properties
  • Define current measurement and modeling approaches for characterising production-chemistry impediments, such as asphaltenes, paraffin waxes, hydrates and inorganic scales
  • Introduce fluid flow and heat transfer concepts and their relationship in precipitation of organic and inorganic solids
  • Demonstrate the value of a systematic and holistic flow assurance program for production systems and operations, using case studies from various field locations around the globe

Understanding Kinetics and Polymorphic Changes in CaCO3 Deposition in Single and Multi-Phase Flow Conditions

This talk will be a review of surface deposition work conducted over the last few years in Leeds which has enabled mechanisms and rates of surface deposition to be accessed.  The integration of a suite of tests which include in-situ visualization, in-situ diffraction measurements, a new capillary cell, post-test spectroscopy and diffraction measurements has been used to quantify how scale deposits and how it can be inhibited.  
The emphasis will be on how we can link the processes occurring in the solution (bulk scaling) with what we see on the surface (surface deposition or adhesion) and how by understanding how surface scale forms assists in its efficient inhibition.
