Proactive approach prevents scaling in Permian’s water-rich formations
The operator’s latest Permian Basin lease acquisition encompasses stillemerging horizontal development of the San Andres dolomite formation, located amid the basin’s water-rich residual oil zone (ROZ). With produced water volumes averaging 4,000 bbl/d with a 60/40 oil cut, scale deposition is a persistent, and costly, production assurance issue. Thus, scale inhibition was one of the operator’s chief objectives in electing to proactively employ leading edge technologies to increase production and estimated ultimate recoveries (EUR).
