SPE International Oilfield Scale Conference and Exhibition

24-25 June 2020, Virtual

Number of conference papers: 43

Please note: The SPE International Oilfield Scale Conference and Exhibition was originally scheduled to be held in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK, 24-25 June 2020. Due to COVID-19 the physical event was not held, and was changed to a virtual event. The official proceedings were published online on 24 June 2020.

Day 2
25 June 2020

Session 2: Keynote II

The deposition of barite on the surface one of the most serious problems to flow assurance in the oil well. The scale formation is typically predicted by the thermodynamic solubility limit. However, it is believed that a kinetically stable region exists where no scale will form even when the solution is supersaturated. The purpose of this study is to identify the supersaturated region where scale does not form and to determine whether inhibitors are needed.

Session 3: Inorganic Scale Control During EOR Production

The use of alkaline surfactant and alkaline surfactant polymer based EOR techniques has become a topic of major interest to the oil and gas industry. This session looks at the increased complexity of managing inorganic scale where these EOR techniques are employed and covers the impact on modelling scale under EOR regime and what impact the polymers have on scale inhibitor adsorption. Additionally, in this section work on how changing LSSW (low sulphate seawater) composition through increased sulphate levels affects scaling risks will be presented.

Session 4: Developments in Residuals Analysis and Produced Water Monitoring

The scaling health of individual producer wells is dependent on key monitoring data inputs and can present significant surveillance challenges when multiple well flows commingle into a single production train. The technical papers selected for this session provide novel approaches to forensic interrogation of these mixtures to reveal the contributing water chemistries and scale inhibitor residuals concentrations for optimum producer well scaling health management.

Session 9: Regional and Knowledge Sharing ePosters - Thursday

In addition to the papers which are presented at the conference, a number of additional papers are available and will be presented in poster format. These technical posters cover a wide range of topics and represent multiple demographic areas. Poster presenters will be available for questions and discussion at their designated session, spread over the coffee breaks. We hope you enjoy this additional opportunity for learning.
