Session 3: Inorganic Scales and Geochemistry

Inorganic scale control has presented challenges over the decades. Management of the more conventional sulfate and carbonate scales has vastly improved with developments in scale prediction, inhibitor performance testing, new molecules for harsher conditions, better deployment methods and improved monitoring. Fresh technical and commercial issues have emerged as the oil industry has developed more challenging reservoirs with higher pressures/temperature, higher concentrations of H2S, higher shear conditions with use of inflow control devices in production wells, and enhanced oil recovery utilizing novel chemicals and gases. This session will highlight these very challenges via a range of field application and fundamental research papers.

Session 4: Water Managemen: Chemical Treatment and Additives

Monitoring and treatment of water, both produced and used for primary and secondary recovery, are key issues for the industry. This session focuses on water treatment for onshore and offshore operations, including simulation tools, monitoring, and new additive development, identifying the most important parameters for their performance. Also, papers that investigate new additives for water-control will be presented in this session.

Session 9: Chemical Additives for Unconventional Reservoirs

A rich array of papers comprise this session that centers on shale plays and the chemical additives required to most efficiently produce hydrocarbons.. A fundamental review of the Eagle Ford Shale lithology will be presented, as well as how different brine types affect formation damage of shales during stimulation. A review of a novel method for paraffin control during fracturing using water dispersible chemistry has been included. This topic will be followed by one addressing a major focus on surfactant chemistry used during hydraulic fracturing to function as flowback aids either in a single phase or in a microemulsified form.
