    Abstract

    A two-phase, multi-component near well simulator for modelling scale inhibitor squeeze processes has been developed. It models the temperature field and the inhibitor transport, including adsorption/desorption, precipitation/dissolution and dispersion behavior. This model is driven by the production data obtained either from a conventional full field reservoir simulation or from field measurements. Application of the modelling to a real layered heterogeneous reservoir is presented. Different horizontal production well placement and drives mechanism were assessed with a view of obtaining the water breakthrough profiles along with the well length as a function of time.
