Brochure DeScal Descaling, Decontamination, and Decommissioning Service
The DeScal descaling, decontamination, and decommissioning service.
When scale—mineral or elemental—has accumulated downhole, on the topsides, or on export terminals, the DeScal descaling, decontamination, and decommissioning service is the answer. Mineral scale deposition can plug the most permeable reservoir, forcing operators into a relentless and costly struggle to maintain a clear pathway to maximize production.
Together with advanced and site-specific analytical methodologies, Schlumberger provides an extensive suite of new-generation, noncorrosive, environmentally compatible scale dissolvers. As an added bonus, scale dissolvers used by the DeScal service remove the largest amounts of scale per liter, reducing overall treatment costs.
This powerful yet nonhazardous and noncorrosive scale dissolver and sequestrant provides the optimal pH for sulfate scale dissolution.
With capacities of up to 80g/L, the converting and catalyzing agents integral to BASOL 2000 HP scale dissolver ensure rapid dissolution rates compared with other industry products.
The uniquely formulated CAL-ACID scale dissolver and sequestrant provides a viable, fast-acting, noncorrosive alternative to conventional mineral acid treatments for carbonate scales.
It has the same calcium carbonate scale dissolution capacity (260 g/L) as hydrochloric acid (HCl). However, it possesses an inherent sequestering capacity that prevents the reprecipitation of undesired substances, such as iron (liberated through scale dissolution), that could potentially damage the formation.
GYPSOL scale dissolver and sequestrant provides the optimal pH (7–8) to dissolve calcium sulfate scale, while retaining the ability to dissolve coprecipitated barium and strontium sulfate scales.
PYRISOL scale dissolver is a unique alkaline dissolver designed to remove iron sulfide, iron oxide, and sulfur in a safe and controlled manner without the liberation of H2S.
