nhibitor protection: effective control of scaling
During well operation, salt deposition may occur on the surface of the well equipment. This can lead to damage to pumping installations, blockage of pipelines and internal surfaces of equipment. Salts can also be formed in the pores of rocks in the bottomhole zone, reducing their permeability. In order to effectively protect the equipment (and thereby significantly prolong its service life), a chemical reagent – scale inhibitor is used. Regular use of the inhibitor not only interferes with scaling, but also increases the productivity of wells and its flow rate.
What are dangerous salt deposits?
Salt deposits trigger the formation of corrosion of downhole and surface equipment. Salt deposits also reduce well production and lead to premature breakdowns of pumping units. All this entails the need for premature costly repairs and disables the well. To prevent the above troubles, there is a scale inhibitor: oil production implies constant or periodic dosing of the reagent, adding it to the kill fluid, and other uses that are optimal for each well.
