    Abstract

    Commercial sulphate and carbonate scale inhibitors can be applied for squeeze treatments. The inhibitors are evaluated using data from static/dynamic efficiency, static adsorption, compatibility and thermal stability. Corefloods are also used to analyze the squeeze lifetime performance and assess the levels of formation damage. A field squeeze strategy is derived from a computer model of the coreflood data.
