Completion Oilfield Chemistry Structured to the Non-Chemist Course

Kimberley Mac Ewen

This course provides attendees with a comprehensive look into the more common, synthetic chemicals used in oilfield completions. We will look at and discuss the right chemistry completions, production and EOR. Once we have a clear understanding of the chemistry and its applications, we will review how to obtain viscosity (does chemistry matter?), rheology related to visco-elasticity (storage/loss modulus), how to get the most out a friction reducer, corrosion/scale/shale stabilizers. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to make a more educated decision on the chemistry to use in your well.Read more...
