Flow assurance scaling prediction, prevention and remediation:

Intertek evaluates scaling tendencies throughout the life of a reservoir. Capabilities include sampling, analytical testing, research and predictive models.

Scaling tendency:

  • Onsite Sampling and Analysis
  • Re-equilibration of brines at reservoir conditions to 400F
  • Compositional analysis to ppb levels with ICP-MS
  • Reconstruction of brine contaminated with drilling fluid
  • Geochemical modeling
  • Compatibility assessment
  • Waterflood design
  • Remedial options
  • Inhibitor selection, multi-functional inhibitors research
  • Drilling/completion fluid design
  • Low temperature applications
  • Additives options, Novel intervention methods
