Why onsite scale monitoring
Scale management has become an essential component for flow assurance across the majority of offshore production locations. Whether squeeze or topside strategies are employed it is critical to ensure that the applied scale inhibitor product is delivering the expected level of protection.
With KemConnect we introduce a new paradigm that delivers several highly valuable features to improve flow assurance and manage costs.
Measure only active residual scale inhibitor levels
The applications measure only active scale inhibitor so decisions can be made with confidence based on the actual active level in the produced water. It is known that shearing and exposure to field conditions such as elevated temperatures can inactivate scale inhibitors.
One System for onsite monitoring
One system now provides onsite measuring for all polymeric scale inhibitor and phosphonate SI monitoring capability. Tagged polymers are no longer essential for monitoring and no more matching of different detection methods(e.g. ICP and fluorescence or mass spectroscopy).
Give onsite decision makers immediate update on residual SI levels
Cost management and chemical logistics can be improved through local response to real time SI level variations.
