A dozen researchers from the Institute of Petroleum Engineering's Flow Assurance and Scale Team (FAST) will be attending the SPE International Conference & Exhibition on Oilfield Scale, Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre, 30-31 May 2012.
The contingent will be participating in four of the presentations and six of the posters. An additional ten presentations and ten posters have been co-authored by former members of the FAST research group.
The theme of the 2012 conference is "Innovative Scale Control Management". Scaling issues have always been identified as one of the most challenging areas in the development of a field. Although remarkable progress has been made, with novel and innovative solutions being provided by companies, there is still much to be learned.
