Mineral scale deposition occurs from water that is produced along with the hydrocarbons as well as changes in temperature and/or pressure. Left untreated, scale deposits can lead to serious and costly production and equipment related problems.
IOS offers a wide variety of scale inhibitor chemistries to prevent the deposition of carbonate and sulfate scales in production, water transfer, and disposal facilities. The commingling of produced fluids further increases the risk for scale deposition. IOS has the ability to simulate the commingling of fluids and determine the risk for scale deposition for any asset.
