Bulk Scale Analysis confirms No scale - Save millions
After several years with squeeze operations, BSA is now used instead to confirm that wells are not scaling.
A customer squeezed wells based on potential of calcium carbonate deposition. The preventive strategy was selected because any scale removal operations would be costly.
The strategy is now changed. Instead of preventive costly squeeze operations, BSA is used to verify if actual scaling takes place or not. It turns out that the scaling tendencies are less than estimated, and no wells have been squeezed since startup of BSA. Million of dollars are saved by use of BSA only for this case alone.
