Scale Identification, Remediation & Prevention Workshop

 

Duration: 10 hours virtual instructor-led, plus approximately 16 hours self-paced work

 

Scale Identification, Remediation and Prevention is an essential part of a production or workover engineer’s scope of work. This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of dilemmas in operating producing and injection wells relating to the presence of a variety of oilfield scale types ‒ primarily reduction in pipe carry capacity and localization of corrosion attack ‒ deposition mechanisms, identification methods, various removal techniques and methodologies for its prevention. Upon completion, participants will be aware of the scale problem, understand ways to remediate it and prevent it subsequent deposition. Specific mathematical scale prediction methods are presented and numerous preventive methods, both chemical and unique approaches, are covered.
