When formation waters mix, or are blended with injection water, the incompatibility of ions causes a reaction called “supersaturation”. This leads to scaling, or the deposition of minerals such as carbonates, sulfates, sulfides and chlorites.
As scales form, they hinder fluid flow, reducing production rates and damaging equipment. That’s why scaling becomes such a major flow assurance challenge—one that often requires aggressive chemical treatment, depending on factors such as well composition and the complexity of the scale structure.
Our scale inhibitors work by binding ions that could potentially precipitate as scales. Our products have excellent solubility and thermal stability to combat these mineral deposits by keeping flow rates high and reducing scale formation.
