Global Oilfield Corrosion and Scale Inhibitor Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0%

Date: 2016-09-14

The term Scale inhibitor is used to refer to a chemical that stops or interferes with inorganic scale nucleation, precipitation and adherence to production conduit, completion system or processing facilities, the three key elements susceptible to scale problems. Scale Inhibitor performance is impacted by the pH, temperature, calcium and magnesium ion levels, and the presence of other chemicals (e.g. corrosion inhibitor) in the scaling brine mixtures. Its threshold level for a defined level of inhibition is called minimum inhibitor concentration (MIC), which is typically 0.5 to 20ppm. However, the MIC for high temperature high pressure (HTHP) fields that have severe scale problems can be on the order of a few hundred ppm.

In oilfield, scale inhibitors are typically continuously injected via capillary or subsea umbilical tubes to the tree or downhole depending on the location and severity of the scaling risks, or periodic scale sqeeze treatments may be required to place the inhibitor in the reservoir matrix if the scaling occurs in the near wellbore region or at the completion.

Scale inhibitor chemistries used in the oil industry generally fall into three main types: Inorganic Phosphates, Organophosphorous Compounds, Organic Polymers. Inorganic Phosphates are both cheap and easily prepared. Organophosphorus compounds are degradable organic compounds containing carbon–phosphorus bonds (thus excluding phosphate and phosphite esters, which lack this kind of bonding), and it can be divided into Organic Phosphate Esters and Phosphonates. Organic polymers are chiefly crystal distorters although they also reduce precipitation in typical oilfield brines.

The global oilfield corrosion and scale inhibitor market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.0% over the period 2015-2019. In terms of geography, North America is the largest market of oilfield corrosion and scale inhibitor followed by Europe. With the rapid development of economy, the demand of Asia-Pacific is growing for oil, water mining is one of the important measures increased oil production, so Asia Pacific will grow at a highest growth rate, about 8.2%.
