TOPICS OF INTEREST
Saudi Arabia Is Rich in Harsh Well Conditions
Saudi Aramco’s papers on new well technology offer glimpses at the challenges of developing its unconventional gas resources.
Firm That Transforms Surface Properties With Lasers Wins Top Prize at ATCE Startup Village
FLITE Material Sciences says that its unique lasering process can be used on just about any type of material to make it either repel or attract water and oil. For an industry that deals with a lot of both, the technology has many potential use cases.
High-Density Polyethylene Liner Safeguards Against Corrosion and Wear
The complete paper presents the results of evaluation of laboratory and demonstration trials of HDPE liner to mitigate premature failures and prolong the run life of production tubing.
Improving Corrosion Management by Using a Micelle Detection Technology
Corrosion inhibitors are often the first line of defense against internal corrosion, and effective mitigation relies on proactive monitoring and management of these inhibitors to allow for regular feedback and dose adjustment.
Foamer Developed To Help Corrosion, Scale Inhibition
A look at the challenges in creating a foamer with corrosion and scale inhibition properties for application in wet-gas production.
Time-Resolved Fluorescence for Real-Time Monitoring of Scale and Corrosion Inhibitors
This paper describes a novel method of chemical dosage based on time-resolved fluorescence (TRF) that allows a simple, accurate, and efficient quantification of chemicals below parts-per-million ranges, even for double (scale/scale, scale/corrosion) quantification.
Biocide Treatment Program Reduces Premature Coiled Tubing Failures
A study done to find the root cause of coiled tubing string failures in Montney indicated microbial-induced corrosion, leading the CT service provider to create a biocide treatment program.
Novel Viscosity Reducer Aids Removal of Scale From Electrical Submersible Pumps
Rigless coiled-tubing-unit (CTU) interventions can be effective in returning to production wells that have lost electrical-submersible-pump (ESP) efficiency because of organic, inorganic, or mixed scale deposits.
Corrosion and Scale Formation in High-Temperature Sour-Gas Wells
Sour gas is being produced from a number of carbon-steel-completed wells in the US, Canada, France, and Saudi Arabia.
Sodium Gluconate as a New Environmentally Friendly Iron-Control Agent for Acidizing
This work introduces sodium gluconate as an efficient and environmentally friendly iron-chelating agent.
Microbial-Influenced-Corrosion-Related Coiled-Tubing Failures and Equipment Damage
Microbial-influenced corrosion (MIC) has been implicated in few corrosion-related challenges in the well-service industry in the past.
With more wells to check than tools and time to do so, a methodology to predict wells with the highest risk of corrosion was developed.
