The paper presents the results of experimental and modelling studies which aimed to improve downhole scale inhibitor squeeze treatment design by extending the squeeze lifetime in the Alwyn North field. The model used in the study describes scale inhibitor squeeze processes in near-well formation. In order to carry out the optimization of squeeze design, scale inhibitor laboratory core floods were carried out at reservoir conditions in order to derive inhibitor dynamic adsorption isotherms. The model then used the isotherms to perform the prediction of the lifetimes of the multiple scale inhibitor squeeze treatments and to optimize the squeeze operational design.
