Downhole mineral scale prevention in oilfields with the use of chemical inhibitors being applied in squeeze treatments were studied by precipitation/dissolution process. The solubility of the precipitated inhibitor complex (C5) and the dissolution rate (r4) governed the dynamics of the inhibitor return curve. These predictions were experimentally confirmed by analyzing core flooding results using both outcrop and reservoir cores.
