...Mandhr Al Kalbani; Hatem Al Shabibi; Oleg Ishkov; Duarte Silva; Eric Mackay; Salima Baraka-Lokmane; Pierre Pedenaud Summary Injection of low-sulfate seawater (LSSW) instead of untreated full-sulfate seawater (FSSW) is widely used to mitigate barium sulfate scaling risk at the production wells. LSSW...

...M. M. Al Kalbani; M. M. Jordan; E. J. Mackay; K. S. Sorbie; L.. Nghiem Summary Barium sulfate (BaSO 4 ) scale is a serious problem that is encountered during oilfield production and has been studied mainly for fields undergoing waterflooding. Chemical enhanced oil recovery (cEOR) processes involve...

... downhole flowmetering. Strong evidence of the involvement of barium, sulfate, and magnesium ions in reactions, on the basis of the calculations of the relative ion deviations, has been shown for field data. In another case, application of injection-water fraction prompted a re-evaluation of formation-water...

Initially nanofiltration to reduce the sulfate level in the seawater was identified to mitigate reservoir souring, but because of the high capital-expenditure (CAPEX) costs, it was dropped and, because there were no other proven mitigation techniques available, it was...

However, scale problems are not limited to these minerals, and there recently have been reports of unusual scale types, such as zinc and lead sulfide. This paper focuses on zinc sulfide scale that has been found in several...

Subsequent pilot operations focused on process optimization and process sensitivity to system upsets. The process appeared most sensitive to large variations in sulfide loading owing to maximum water...
