Virtual SPE International Oilfield Scale Conference and Exhibition 24 - 26 Jun 2020 Aberdeen, Scotland, UK

Letter from the Conference Chair

Dear Colleagues,


As chair of the 15th SPE International Oilfield Scale Conference and Exhibition programme committee, I would like to make you aware that this event will once again be held in Aberdeen on 24– 25 June 2020.

While our understanding of the factors that influence inorganic scale formation and control are constantly improving more extreme environment for hydrocarbon recovery continue to emerge.  These environmental challenges include physical properties such as high pressure/temperature, high total dissolved solids and high pH, location in the form of deepwater wells with complex subsea architecture to unconventional long-reach horizontal wells are now combined with the challenge of reducing operational costs.

Held every two years in Aberdeen, this event offers an unrivalled opportunity for you to share your challenges and solutions to inorganic scale control management from fundamental research to hands-on experience of tackling such challenges in field applications. 

The 2020 programme committee invites you to share your knowledge at this unique and very well attended event.  We welcome your paper proposals in all inorganic scale related areas as noted in the list of technical categories below especially case studies with operational data to support effectiveness of treatment programs. 

Please submit your paper proposal no later than 24 October 2019. If your abstract is accepted for presentation you will be notified by mid-November 2019.

A draft manuscript submission for committee review will be due by 6 April 2020 with final submissions to be received by SPE no later than 27 April 2020.
