Formation, Removal, and Inhibition of Inorganic Scale in the Oilfield Environmen
Scale buildup can have serious operational consequences. Formation, Removal and Inhibition of Organic Scale in the Oilfield Environment gives an overview of the science and technology of scale formation, removal, and inhibition to a general technical audience, with emphasis placed on the basic chemical and mechanical principles for scale control. Learn about the environment in which damaging scales occur and the technical aspects of scale management from an upstream oil and gas industry perspective. The text and more than 100 illustrations describe aspects of inorganic scales, including the chemical driving forces for scale formation, methods for removing and preventing scale, and the mathematical methods behind engineering guidelines, along with a discussion of best practices and case histories for control of the various types of inorganic deposits.
This book is the companion to Organic Deposits in Oil and Gas Production. Together, these books will help you diagnose and resolve deposition issues in your operations.
