With maturity of oil fields comes more and more operational constrains mainly due to increased water production, depletion of reservoir pressure and external materials injected to the reservoir for stimulation and EOR activities. Solution to these problems requires skills in identifying the source of problem and judicial use of chemicals and treatment methods to maintain production. Chemicals used for controlling corrosion, emulsions, foaming, mineral scales, paraffin (waxes), asphaltenes, gashydrates, hydrogen sulfide scavengers and water clarifiers are covered in this course. The course includes methods to determine the need for chemical treatment, how to select the proper chemicals, and how testing for chemical compatibility with the formation and other chemicals is performed. Basic information on environmental regulations for chemical use and disposal along with requirements for environment friendly chemicals and their performance will be discussed. The focus of the course will be to deliver knowledge and awareness of the use of proper chemicals and proper application methodologies toprevent problems, improve production and economics, and extend the life of the well.
