Crystal modifier chemistry is fast becoming very important in the enhanced production capacity of crude oil fluids. These products have been used for many years in offshore and refinery applications with a high degree of success. However, the broad usage of these chemicals in production areas has been spotty at best and often underutilized. Because of the incentive of increased fluid production resulting from crystal modifier application, producers have been more receptive to the usage of these types of treatment chemical applications. Considering this increased willingness of producers to incorporate these chemicals in their treating chemical programs it was important to study the various application methods by which these products can be introduced into the systems requiring treatment. Since, not all wells are equipped with capillary injection strings, or have backside access to chemical injection other methods such as squeeze applications are considered. Thus, laboratory testing and field test results are discussed in this paper.
