Abstract
Scale deposition is one of the most serious oil field problems that inflict water
injection systems primarily when two incompatible waters are involved. Mixing of
these waters could cause precipitation of CaSO4, BaSO4, and/or SrSO4.
To generate reaction kinetics data, the rate of calcium sulphate deposition in
porous rock was measured while flooding Berea core samples of uniform
properties with super-saturated brine. The brine was formulated by mixing a Ca+2
-
rich solution with a SO4
-2
-rich solution at the core inlet. The rate of CaSO4 scale
