Myles Jordan, Director, Marketing ChampionX

With more than 30 years’ experience in oilfield chemistry, Myles Jordan has spent his career with ChampionX. An SPE member, he has been involved in the international organisation’s Oilfield Scale Symposium in Aberdeen since its inception. He returns to this year’s event, which is being held on 5-6 June, as its conference chair for the fifth time.  

This year’s conference will focus on the topic of inorganic scale formation and control.  Myles explained why this topic is so relevant for the 150+ delegates attending the conference from around the world: “As the energy transition ramps up, operators are striving to extract every last drop of oil. Inorganic scale is a key challenge for the industry, with fields often producing for much longer durations than anticipated, so the risk must be managed effectively to ensure asset integrity and improved flow assurance.” 

Technology advancements are essential to supporting this drive, with new chemical formulations required that not only tackle scale issues but are also environmentally friendly in support of net zero goals. The committee has therefore carefully curated a line-up with speakers at E&P companies, academic research facilities, and supply chain companies to ensure we have every angle covered. 

“The Scale Symposium is always an insightful event with sessions covering a range of topics which are trending in the industry right now. We are very fortunate this year; as well as a fantastic set of presenters, we have a larger number of presentations than in previous years that are based on case study material, with proven track record accounts to help demonstrate insights and successes.” 

As well as Myles delivering a keynote presentation, ChampionX has secured a further presentation slot and will display four posters at the venue. Aligned to the event, our strategic focus details novel liquid, solid inhibitor formulations, and analytical methods which can improve the real-time approach to scale management, enhancing the understanding of implications these can have on the scale management programme. 

As the energy industry continues to prioritise sustainability and efficiency, ChampionX’s presentations will also aim to provide practical insight into exploring cutting-edge research that drives the industry forward and will be crucial in advancing efforts towards a low-carbon future. Myles added: “I’ll be focusing my keynote on the challenges of produced water re-injection, while my colleagues will cover how to optimise chemicals most effectively when they are used.  

“The overarching theme of these case study presentations will hone in on this transition in relation to scale management, aiming to capture the interest of both operating companies and service providers through shared experiences, challenges, and successful solutions. 

“We aim to share the importance of understanding the role of scale management in carbon capture, utilisation, and storage. A section of the event’s presentations focuses on low carbon strategy and reducing carbon emissions, however there is a general theme across many of our papers that talk about improving scale management efficiency and essentially reducing the carbon footprint so less energy is associated with shipping unnecessary material offshore.”  

ChampionX will present the following:
