Tipping the Scale - Session 1
Description: During this session, our experts will discuss the various options available to address your mineral scale challenges, including treatments designed to prevent near wellbore/tubing deposition and solutions to mitigate scaling in wells aggravated by artificial lift systems. An enhanced surveillance program is a critical element of a scale control program. Presenters Clare Johnston and Louise Sutherland will share best practices in ensuring a holistic understanding of the performance of your scale management program’s performance.
