Operators having wells with increased water production, water flood projects, and geothermal wells are experiencing downhole scale buildup problems that can be quite severe. Production can become choked off, and in extreme cases, complete plugging of the tubulars can occur.

A total system approach has been developed to remove scales without removing or damaging the production tubing and casing. This method involves the use of high-pressure, polymer-enhanced, submerged fluid jets combined with reeled tubing equipment. This efficient system has proven significant cost reductions can be achieved compared to existing scale removal techniques.
