Clariant to exhibit and present papers at SPE International Oilfield Conferences
HOUSTON (Texas), May 2, 2014 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, will make significant contributions to the SPE International Conference on Oilfield Corrosion and Oilfield Scale, taking place May 12-15, 2014, at the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre. Clariant Oil Services’ Jonathan Wylde, Global Head of Application Development, will chair the Oilfield Scale Conference, held May 14-15.
Clariant Oil Services representatives will present a paper focusing on corrosion inhibitor selection and performance at the SPE International Conference on Oilfield Corrosion, while two papers detailing scale control, best practices and breakthroughs will be covered at the Oilfield Scale Conference. In addition, Clariant Oil Services will present a poster titled, "The Challenges Associated with Reaction Products Left in Scale Inhibitor Species After Radical Polymerization," as well as sponsorthe Proceedings CDs, which all attendees receive as part of their registration.
Andrew MacDonald, Strategic Account Manager for Clariant Oil Services UK, will co-chair the Tuesday, May 13 Technical Session 3: Chemical Inhibitor Treatments, from 9 – 10:30 a.m. MacDonald will present laboratory findings from Clariant’s paper, "Understanding the Impact of Field Development and Changing Fluid Compositions on Corrosion Inhibitor Selection and Performance."
On Thursday, May 15, the Oilfield Scale Conference’s Session 5: Current Practice for Unconventional Scale and Scale Control, held from 9 – 10:30 a.m., will feature session chairs discussing subject matter from Clariant’s paper, "Sulfide Scale Control in Produced Water Handling and Injection Systems: Best Practices and Global Experience Overview." Session 6: Emerging Innovation for Unconventional Scale Control, held from 11 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., will include detailed findings from Clariant’s "Sulfide Scale Control: A High Efficacy Breakthrough Using an Innovative Class of Polymeric Inhibitors," which focuses on the developing area of research for sulfide scale prevention through the use of chemistry.
