Why Choose this Training Course?

Scaling is severe problem for oil and gas industry and become more and more sharp as we go deeper into reservoirs and further offshore. Companies spend billions of dollars to manage oilfield scaling at theirs Assets with limited efficacy. There are three main aspects that limits efficacy of activities. (1) Implemented actions are not systematic; (2) Lack of comprehensive approach; (3) Lack of deep understanding of scale formation mechanisms.

Our training provides the unique opportunity to get full understanding of what oilfield scaling is, how it forms and how to manage it. Course program is developed based on years of fields experience, theoretical studies and proved high efficacy throughout the industry. We will show you insights of scale management practice which you unlikely know from chemicals supplier or other training providers. You will know how to spend less and get more. Robust production, less well workover, reduction of chemicals consumption, synergetic effects for entire Asset!

This Petroknowledge online training course will highlight:

  • Examples of common scaling problems
  • Causes of scaling
  • Scaling mechanisms
  • Main types of scale in oil and gas industry
  • Scale prevention/remediation techniques
  • Scaling management system setup

What are the Goals?

At the end of this Petroknowledge online training course, you will learn to:

  • Define the formation, causes, and mechanisms of scale
  • Identify the problems/implications associated with scale deposits
  • Understand the prediction/prevention methods used for scale
  • Describe the types of scale inhibitors used for scale prevention
  • Select testing methods used for evaluating scale inhibitors
  • Understand the product selection/application methods used for scale prevention programs
  • Describe the monitoring methods and KPIs used in scale prevention programs
  • Recognize the troubleshooting guidelines used for scale deposition in oil and gas production system
