FORSA Asphaltene Inhibitor Saved More Than USD 2.5 Million in Annual Treatment Costs
A major producer operating a CO2 flood operation in the southeast United States experienced a production decrease in many of their wells. These wells were producing 42º API gravity crude oil from depths ranging from 4,500 to 5,500 ft (1372–1676 m). Asphaltene deposition at the surface and bottomhole resulted in shut-ins and deferred production.
Baker Hughes, a GE company (BHGE) implemented a new cost-effective FORSA™ asphaltene inhibition program to optimize treatment rates, increase squeeze life, enhance production, and eliminate downtime. The success of this treatment program prompted the operator to implement it fieldwide.
